A section of the 190 strong audience prepare to view Aftermath – Unanswered Questions.

9/11 Family's lawyer Mary Schiavo speaking at the UnansweredQuestions.Org press conference in June 2002, as edited for Aftermath.

After Aftermath the main event – Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 followed and was met with applause. A fair number of the party retired to Kitty O'Shea's afterwards for some post viewing libation.

The one small hitch on the evening came in the form of a failed plan to sell 3000 Deception Dollars to the audience after the event. As a result Scoop now has a very serious roll of deception cash to dispose of and hopefully raise some more money for Indymedia and UnansweredQuestions.Org. Watch this space!
