Monday, September 22, 2008- Listen 8:00 pm- 10:00 pm (Pacific Time) to the weekly Questioning War- Organizing Resistance radio show on the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guest in the first hour- Nicholas Levis and to our guest in the second hour- Anthony J. Hall. |
Nicholas Levis was one of the earliest 9/11 Truth pioneers. Nicholas organized the first major 9/11 Truth Conferences in Berlin, and was a founder and webmaster of one of the first 9/11 Truth websites.
He moved to New York and was involved with the New York group, and flew out to California to help with the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11 and then back to New York to help organize the New York Confronting The Evidence: 9/11 and the Search for Truth September 11th 2004 event. He also worked on the film- Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime with John Albanese. He has worked actually on innumerable projects to produce solid, presentable materials, to educate the public and press about the facts of 9/11, and the cover-up, including the 9/11 Cover-Up Guide and the Summer of Truth website.
Nicholas has been working as a translator (German to English), editor, reporter, researcher, copywriter, project manager, interpreter, language teacher and consultant for clients in publishing, media, business, industry, finance, government, academia, health care and the arts. His invaluable, unpaid contributions to the movement have rarely been publicly acknowledged.
Nicholas and I will be looking at the 9/11 Truth Movement and its evolution over the years, the missed chances, botched opportunities, surprising successes, growth, where we are now, and strategically what we can do at this moment in time, where the focus, message might have the most impact, and bear the most fruit.

Professor Hall is the founding coordinator and associate professor, globalization studies, University of Lethbridge. Perhaps a brief glimpse of his work can be garnered from this short description of his upcoming book-Earth Into Property: Aboriginal History and the Making of Global Capitalism by Anthony J. Hall
Earth into Property explores more than five centuries of imperial and anti-imperial globalization, culminating in the lies and crimes permeating the so-called War on Terror. In describing the genesis of global capitalism, Anthony J. Hall emphasizes the connections linking the genocidal Indian wars in the Americas with Europe's colonization of Indigenous peoples throughout Africa and Asia. The global operations of the military-industrial complex and the national security state emerged from the ongoing appropriation and corporate privatization of Aboriginal lands and resources on capitalism's moving frontiers. This network of US-based corporations and government agencies continues to draw heavily on the fascist heritage of Nazi anti-Communism in its drive to universalize and police a single worldwide regime of unjust property relations.
Hall contrasts the militaristic monoculture of global capitalism with the realm where many political economies thrive in the biocultural diversity of the Fourth World. Hall finds the inspirational sources of this ongoing movement for global decolonization in the liberation struggles of Tecumseh, Toussaint L'Overature, Sitting Bull, Annie Besant, Gandhi, W.E.B. Du Bois, Che Guevara, Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Rigoberta Menchu, and Hugo Chavez ? to mention only a few. In his sweeping and original interpretation, Halls weaves together a narrative of hope extending from the Royal Proclamation of 1763 to the Atlantic Charter of 1941 to the founding at Bandung Indonesia of the Non-Aligned Movement. Hall advances a conception of Aboriginal history that gives all-important historical context to the extensions of the Indian wars in the global resource grabs currently conducted in the name of the bogus War on Terror.
Anthony J. Hall's Earth into Property picks up where Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine leaves off. As Hall demonstrates, the spread of "disaster capitalism" has been going on for centuries, not mere decades, on those resource frontiers where Indigenous peoples have been exterminated, dispossessed, and subjugated in the name of earlier versions of the War on Terror.
We'll be looking at 9/11, as one facet of a much larger struggle, and the truth movement's potential to turn the tide.
