UQ Wire: Newsletter

February 6, 2006

Dear Activists:

We have several announcements to make in this newsletter, and some encouraging news to share! Please pass on this email to your lists to help spread the word!

In This Newsletter:

New at the Site
Citizens' Counter-Coup Campaign
Chicago Conference
Grassroots Contacts
Volunteers Needed

New at the Site:

We have posted about 25 stories since the last newsletter was sent, and our readership has increased dramatically. Highlights among these include several activism-focused pieces, such as "Cut to the Chase or Risk Irrelevance," "Now That You Know, What Can You Do," and announcement of our Citizen’s Counter-Coup initiative, as well as news of 9/11 truth breaking through the corporate media barrier—Mike Malloy’s Air America show and an editorial in the Miami Herald. David Ray Griffin allowed us to publish his new article, "Explosive Testimony," which has been posted at broadly ranging sites, in a number of languages. We posted Kevin Barrett’s excellent "Apocalypse of Coercion," and news about the formation of a new group, Scholars for 9/11 Truth. Please remember that stories scroll off the front page as more are added—please click “next” at the bottom of the page to look at past postings.

Citizens Counter-Coup:

Have you wished for a program that could accelerate the dissemination of 9/11 alternative analysis combined with accelerated action? Have you been frustrated with the lack of media coverage and the absence of participation from the leadership of peace organizations? If so, here is a mechanism which can overcome the challenges in a matter of months. Citizens Counter-Coup (3C) is now entering its second month. We have endorsements from David Ray Griffin and Kevin Barrett, with many more to come. The announcement posted on had 2,000 page views within 2 weeks. Now we need each and every one of you to participate. Please go to Take a few minutes to read it through, and sign up for the monthly reminder. Remember to send back the confirmation notice you'll receive.

We'll have an announcement at the home page of which we ask all to forward to your contacts. If anyone can suggest sites and blogs to post on or ask to have a banner on, please email The bottom line is that we ask for your help to seriously market this campaign. There are millions of people out there who know 9/11 was an orchestrated event but just don't know what to do or don't think we can obtain justice. Citizens Counter-Coup is the missing link. Your efforts will make the difference in creating a national wave of citizenry in action that puts our leadership and media on notice. Our future depends on it.

Chicago Conference:

9/11: Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future— An International Education and Strategy Summit

May, 2006, Chicago, Illinois

Sponsored by

Plans are well underway for this conference, originally announced in our fundraising appeal list of 2006 Projects (see our Donations page to review). Speakers are being invited, workshops planned, strategy sessions structured, and logistics organized – the specific date will be announced as soon as logistics are finalized.

Please watch for unfolding details and online registration to be posted at our site. We are negotiating discounted room rates for the first 150 people who register, so early registration is advised. For more information, email or call our National Outreach Coordinator, Gabriel Day:, 831.325.3135.

Grassroots Contacts:

As this movement experiences continuing growth--particularly in the last few weeks this has been especially true--our small steering committee is rapidly becoming overwhelmed with emails and phone calls, and find ourselves unable to respond adequately to all of them. We are compiling a thorough list of grassroots contacts throughout the US (and abroad) to whom we can direct many of these inquiries. The current list is nearly ready for posting with information already gathered, but we know there are many more of you out there working hard in your local communities to expose 9/11 truth. If you are one of those people or would like to become one, believe the Mission Statement generally reflects your views, and are willing to have your name and email address (and possibly phone number) posted as a contact for your local area, please contact immediately. Please type “Grassroots Contact” in the subject line to make it easier to find your message!

Volunteers Needed:

We need help! has one paid staff person, six volunteer steering committee members most of whom also work full time “day jobs,” and 3950+ people signed up for emails. We are truly an example of a Grassroots Activism organization, and we’re calling on all of you grassroots activists to please help out!

Every one of you has skills and strengths that are needed to make this thing work. We would like to form working groups in the following areas, made up of one or two people able to coordinate the efforts of that group and hundreds/thousands of others willing to help. Some of the groups currently needed include: Legal Efforts, Rapid Response Network (broadcasting breaking news and campaigns across the internet), Journalists, Investigators, Media Outreach, Materials Development (flyers, DVDs, presentations), Activist Outreach, IT/Web Issues, Networking (with other groups), Legislative, Fundraising… Please, consider your strengths and how you could plug in to these efforts—then send us an email to let us know if you can lead one of these groups or how you want to participate ( Thanks!

Calendar: website includes a Calendar, accessible at the lefthand side of the home page. Please post your 9/11-related events there so as to reach the broadest audience possible. Simply login to the site with your username and password, then click on the Calendar link that will appear at the top of the lefthand column. If you have any difficulty doing so, please call Janice at 816.444.3249.

Fundraising Update:

Most of you know we initiated a fundraising effort in late December, where we shared our budget and listed our planned projects for this year (see our Donations page at To those of you who contributed the $4000 we have received and our six new monthly sustainers, thank you very much! We are able to carry on, one month at a time. Please consider whether this effort is important to you, and if you are able, contribute financially. (If you are not financially able, we understand--perhaps you are able to volunteer.) There is no “foundation funding” or federal grant money available for telling the truth about government complicity in 9/11. Please help us become more effective and move forward toward full accountability and justice. It’s up to you!!

As always, we want you to contact any of us with your ideas and input. As always, please accept our thanks for all the work each of you do, and for your courage and tenacity. Steering Committee:

Janice Matthews, Executive Director, Kansas City, MO

Gabriel Day, Outreach and Networking Coordinator, Santa Cruz, CA

David Kubiak, International Campaign Advisor

Les Jamieson, Northeast Program Coordinator, New York City

Bryan Sacks, Contributing Editor, Philadelphia, PA

Jon Gold, Contributing Editor, Plymouth Meeting, PA
