9/11 Truth At LA Peace March
Hope you enjoy the show - and thanks for listening!
9/11 truth makes huge appearance at Los Angeles anti-war march
WeAreChangeLA brought the 9-11 Truth message to the Anti-War march in Los Angeles in a HUGE way. We brought our four massive 2-sided blue banners. This babies are so big, it takes five of us to carry one. We showed up early and it paid off, because we got a good spot up front.
Right off the bat, a young representative from the local chapter of ANSWER, the organization that organized this Anti-War demonstration, approached us and told us that we would have to take our banners to the back of the march. Bruno Bruhwiler from WeAreChangeLA immediately confronted him about trying to kick us to the back of the bus. He said that Answer has the permit for the march, and they can tell us what to do. Bruno reminded him that they do not have a permit to trespass on our Freedom of Speech, and went on to advise the young man to go back and tell his team that they do not want to incur the liability for trespassing on our First Amendment Rights. The young man walked away after warning us that we would have to deal with the Police.
It wasnt long before he came back with four more gentlemen, one of whom began barking at us about a mish mash of reasons why we had to go to the back of the march, and Bruno explained to him why we did not. Was I done talking?! Dont interrupt me! I am not done talking, the agitated man barked or something to that effect. Bruno says. We dont really want to hear what you have to say. One of the gentleman said to us that our message is not conducive to the message of the march, so Bruno asked them all What reason did Obama give for the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen?
We dont want to have a conversation about this. The reason he gave was because of 9-11! Our message is THE anti-war message. There is no message that is more important to the anti-war movement than 9-11 Truth. You could see what looked almost like shame on their faces, and they had nothing to say in dispute.
Bruno alerts them, I need to see IDs from everyone. As far as we know you could be anybody off the sidewalk. How do we know you are actually the organizers? They refused to show IDs, and instead began stating their names, one of which is Jim Lafferty. Jim Lafferty! exclaims Bruno with a smile. Jim Lafferty is the president of the Lawyers Guild in Los Angeles, and also one of the primary aholes at the local radio station, KPFK, who has been instrumental in pushing 9-11 Truth out of the programming over the past couple of years. Jim, are you prepared to incur the liability for trespassing on our First Amendment Rights, today? Jim had absolutely nothing to say, and began taking steps back. He was then verbally accosted by a KPFK employee who kept right in his face wagging his finger as the two of them walked away. That left 2 gentleman with us, one of whom was quite level headed. The other seemed no older than 20, wearing an orange vest, who apparently was the head of security. He said to Bruno something along lines of We are not violating your rights, this is our march. Bruno corrected him, Just by talking only to us, and not everyone here today, you violated our Constitutional rights because you picked us out for our message. Well, you will have to deal with the police, he says to us. Great! Send them over. We talk to the police all the time. We love them, and they love us. Needless to say, not one police officer confronted us the whole day.
Watch the YouTube video, and you will see that our participation in the march was an extreme success. Nelson Martias made a genius move by having a table at the beginning of the march where he handed out 911 Truth signs, and stapled them to sticks, back to back. He even stapled the signs to the sticks of other signs, so folks who came with one group or another, added 9-11 Truth to their message. Throughout the march, everywhere we looked, we saw people carrying those 9-11 Truth signs! We also passed out all of our hundreds of brochures and cards from ae911truth.org. Those went really fast. Folks love those.
One final note, Cheryl Gaskill came up with the message, 9-11: What you dont know is killing people a couple of years ago at our brainstorming meeting for the banners. It turned out to be a very humble but effective message for outreach. We get lots of compliments for that one.
Peace and love to all!

New documentary “The Children of Gaza”
On Monday 15th March Channel 4 aired an episode of Dispatches entitled "The Children of Gaza". It focused on the lives of a few of the children living in that small strip of Palestinian land whose lives were devastated when, 15 months ago, Israel launched its military attack on their homes, killing many of their parents and relatives, and shattering their already fragile existences. It showed how they have bravely tried to deal with their losses and bereavements and have tried to move on with their lives, and simultaneously how Israel has ensured that this is well near impossible as a result of the children’s literal incarceration in Gaza due to Israel’s illegal and ongoing siege.
The documentary focused on how they have been struggling to deal with the fallout of their physical injuries as well as their psychological scars which, in all probability, they will never fully recover from. For once, this documentary was an opportunity for the children of Gaza themselves to speak out and to tell their own stories instead of it being told on their behalf by propagandists with a vested interest in how these children are portrayed.
Gag yourself on April Fool’s Day!
Announcing a new Meetup for The WeAreChange Australia Meetup Group!
What: Gag yourself on April Fool's Day!
When: Thursday, April 1, 2010 5:30 PM
Where: Hyde Park North | Fountain | Sydney
More Info: http://gagthefilter.com/2010/03/sydneyplans/
On April 1, the day of Fools, the Sydney Anti-Filter Coalition is planning a flashmob event in the Central Business District of Sydney.
The Plan for the evening:
Meet: 5:30pm. Hyde Park North on the East side of the fountain. We will have flyers and gags provided too. Look for the man with a hat and handfulls of flyers and gags. After the conventional 15 minutes milling around, we will make an assessment of numbers and what sort of area to cover.
If the numbers aren’t sufficient, we will drop the purple and aqua areas in favour of targetting the central business district. Each route is just a guide, as the whole city will be your playground. (Within reason, we dont want anyone getting arrested.)
At the meeting point, everyone will be instructed to break up into teams of atleast two but no more than about six. Each team will have a designated ’speaker’ these are the normally dressed people who will hand out flyers and be the public liason person to the shoppers and onlookers. Everyone else will be gagged or otherwise censored and wandering around together in small groups. The aim is to meet back up in front on the Museum of Contemporary Art at 7PMish.
After we meet back up, we’ll have a quick debrief, so we can share media gathered etc. and for those that prefer a longer debrief we can adjourn to a pub.
The coming mental health crackdown
We begin tonight with a look at the the latest developments in the climate change debate in Australia, with two top science bodies, the CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology, co-authoring a report titled "Climate Snapshot", which is being described in the press as "a response to recent attacks on the science underpinning climate change".
The report has already been criticised as politically motivated, with a Liberal Senator accusing the Federal Government of turning the CSIRO into a political puppet on the issue of climate change. TNRA takes a hard look at the key graphs in the report, with some startling results.
In the second half solicitor Rochelle Macredie joins us to discuss her concerns over proposed changes to mental health legislation which will mean that psychiatric patients committed to institutions against their will have to wait up to four weeks for a hearing into their detention, and the removal of Magistrates from the decision making process.
These changes amount to a gross violation of human rights.
Rochelle works for Oliveri Lawyers in East Sydney who practise in a variety of areas including criminal law, mental health advocacy, family law, commercial law, wills and probate, equity and involuntary vaccination matters. The first consultation is free. Rochelle can be contacted on the following numbers: 02 9360 3993 / 0407 896 832.
Hope you enjoy the show (:

Videos from Cyber Safety Day:
In the second half we bring you an interview with two members of the Australian Zeitgeist Movement and a discussion of the movement's philosophical underpinning, the Venus Project:
The Venus Project presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture. There are many people today who are concerned with the serious problems that face our modern society: unemployment, violent crime, replacement of humans by technology, over-population and a decline in the Earth's ecosystems.
As you will see, The Venus Project is dedicated to confronting all of these problems by actively engaging in the research, development, and application of workable solutions. Through the use of innovative approaches to social awareness, educational incentives, and the consistent application of the best that science and technology can offer directly to the social system, The Venus Project offers a comprehensive plan for social reclamation in which human beings, technology, and nature will be able to coexist in a long-term, sustainable state of dynamic equilibrium. more...
A fascinating discussion - hope you enjoy it (:
Channel Nine News runs piece on 9/11 Truth and the Pentagon shooting
Alex Jones exposes attempt to demonize 9/11 Truth on Geraldo following Pentagon incident
Alex Jones exposes key information about the Pentagon shooting and the Christmas Day Bombing during a live segment with Geraldo Rivera on FOX News this Saturday.
Geraldo asks if the Pentagon shooting incident "will stick to the 9/11 Truther people", almost as if that was someone's intent. Alex responds in anger about why the media moved so quickly in attempt to demonize 9/11 Truthers - who broadly include, polls show, a majority of Americans and 6 out of 10 9/11 Commissioners who question the official story.

Dylan Avery Spars with the MSM
Dylan Avery and Korey Rowe were interviewed by ABC News at the Treason in America Conference on 3 March 2006.
It is great to see these guys successfully combat all the usual underhanded tactics used by mainstream media to unsettle and subtly ridicule members of the 9/11 truth movement.
Dylan Avery has become a very articulate and skillful debater over the years, after many skirmishes with yellow journalism.
These skills were hard won. It's a pity he has decided to give up film making, yet understandable.
