The Multnomah County Central Library held their event, "The September Project: A Communitywide Conversation on Patriotism and Dissent"
and included groups, Oregon Council for the Humanities and City Club of Portland. Author Barry Lopez was the keynote speaker.
The independent Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance held a demonstation in front of the Central Library with their Dot Questions signs, a dozen different unanswered questions concerning the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
In an unusual gesture for their event, library officials allowed the demonstrators to display their signs to the capacity crowd on the 3rd floor of the library.
Over 500 sets of literature, including the famed "Deception Dollar" were passed out by the group in their first public event.
