9/11: Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future

An International Education and Strategy Conference
Chicago, Illinois June 2-4, 2006

Embassy Suites Hotel Chicago-O'Hare Rosemont

The 9/11 truth movement has gained enormous credibility and momentum in 2006. Help us build that momentum into a political force that will carry us to success. Let us reveal to all that 9/11 truth offers the greatest opportunity in modern history for courageous, ethical people to positively influence the future of humanity. We hope to achieve no less than a return to Constitutional rule with the re-establishment of our precious civil liberties, the end of fraudulent wars and true justice for all the victims. We should act on this opportunity with gratitude and intelligence, sounding an alarm as well as a declaration that we are free and in charge of our own destiny as awakened and empowered citizens shaping a better world.

In Chicago we will be offering an intensive weekend which will include workshops, presentations, strategy sessions and abundant opportunities for the growing 9/11 truth movement to come together. We are very pleased to announce we have speaking commitments from BYU physics professor Steven E. Jones, Alex Jones of inforwars.com, ex-MI5 whistleblower David Shayler and Annie Machon, lawyer and author William Pepper, radio talk show host Meria Heller, Peter Phillips of Project Censored, Canadian activist Ian Woods of Global Outlook magazine, scientist Kevin Ryan, Dr. Faiz Khan, author Jim Marrs, Canadian media critic Barrie Zwicker, Scholars for 9/11 Truth founder Jim Fetzer, strategist David Kubiak, video producer Ken Jenkins, Ralph Schoenman, California 9/11 truth congressional candidate Carol Brouillet and Chris Emery of the Oklahoma City Bombing Investigation Committee. Media coverage is planned by INN World Report, KPFA Berkeley, KPFK of Los Angeles, KBOO of Portland and many others. Many more important luminaries, authors, researchers, organizers and media activists can be expected.

This gathering has been taking shape since last fall with the help of a diverse group of grassroots activists. We expect this conference to be a major, watershed event bringing together the many new credible voices from across the political spectrum. It will be an education and strategy conference that moves well beyond past 9/11 events. We particularly wish to have widespread representation from across North America and abroad so please consider participating or helping to send people from your community.

Everything we need to succeed -- we now have:

• Mounting facts and evidence from 9/11 truth movement researchers
• Dynamic new truth groups bursting forth at an unprecedented rate
• The support of respected leaders across the political spectrum
• A nationwide communications network in independent media
• Enduring inspiration from courageous whistleblowers & victim families
• A country gradually waking up to the desperate need for truth
• Visual and performing artists offering their creativity to our cause

All that's missing is a shared strategy and synergistic efforts - Please join us in Chicago and help turn 9/11 knowledge into the transformative power we need.

Director of Project Censored to Speak at 9/11 Truth Education/Strategy Conference

Conference Title: 9/11- Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future
Chicago-O'Hare, Rosemont, Illinois
June 2-4, 2006
Embassy Suites Hotel


Peter Phillips, an associate professor of sociology at Sonoma State University and the distinguished director of Project Censored, will be a featured presenter during a weekend of exposition and strategy aimed at challenging the official version of the 9-11 attacks and raising public awareness of their full scope.

Project Censored is an internationally renowned media research program that annually identifies the "most censored" news stories in the United States. A RICO suit brought against the US Government for possible complicity in the attacks of 9/11 made Project Censored's 2005 list of most censored stories at #9. The "Unanswered Questions of 9/11" fills an entire chapter in Project Censored's 2006 annual yearbook.

Keynote speakers scheduled to make presentations include BYU Physics Professor Steven E. Jones, news commentator Alex Jones, former MI5 member David Shayler and acclaimed lawyer for the family of Martin Luther King, Jr., William Pepper.

The 9/11 Commission Report failed to answer (or to even address) the majority of questions posed by the family members of 9/11 victims, and the commissioners likewise did not see fit to consider evidence and issues raised by 9/11 researchers. Polls show that a growing majority believes that there has been a cover-up of 9/11, fueling the diminishing popularity of the Bush administration and the growing demand for impeachment.

While 9/11 researchers and activists disagree about many aspects of what did happen, they unanimously agree that there has been a systemic obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, and a cover-up of 9/11-related information engineered by high-ranking officials. Members of the highly decentralized 9/11 truth movement have organized rallies, marches, and educational events—as well as producing numerous films, television programs, and radio programs—to challenge the official story, to inspire people to investigate the facts about that day and to push for accountability of government officials' criminal behavior.

During the weekend, conference presenters will gather to share evidence and discuss strategy in hopes of further mobilizing the public to hold officials accountable for their crimes and to remove them from positions of power. They further hope to prevent future "9/11's" by exposing the mechanics and history of special operations and false flag terror events that have been used by governments to gain support for wars and to justify domestic repression.

A press conference will be held at 1:00 pm on Friday, June 2nd, at the Chicago-O'Hare Embassy Suites Hotel in Rosemont, IL. Conference registration begins at 4:00 pm, and the conference program will run from Friday evening until Sunday at 6:00 pm. Details are posted at  http://www.911RevealingTheTruth.org. Sponsors include 911truth.org and the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth.
