1. 911truth.org Sponsors Live Event Broadcast From UC Berkeley Saturday, 11/11--TOMMORROW
On Saturday, Nov 11 a
conference hosted by a group of academics and 9/11
researchers will be held, entitled "Lifting the Fog: The
Scientific Method Applied to the World Trade Center
Disaster." Speakers and presenters will include Peter
Phillips, Steven E. Jones, Jim Hoffman, Jenna Orkin, and
others during this all-day event.
911truth.org is sponsoring a live webcast of the conference presentation by Steven Jones (with David Griffin on video), "Analysis of the World Trade Center Destruction."Description: What can be learned from analysis of the physical features of the total destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7? Are there natural processes that could explain these features?

NOTE: The UC Berkeley tech folks have pointed out that
their webcast system is brand new, and only a beta version.
We all very much hope it will work perfectly, but it's worth
some finger-crossing! In the meantime, efforts are also
underway to stream audio of the full day's events. We will
post more info to the front page of 911truth.org as it

2. 9/11 Truth Candidates Get Lots of Votes, But No Cigars
The news for most 9/11 Truth Candidates was not great - no clearly-identified 9/11 Truth candidate won office, though most were third party candidates fighting an uphill battle from the start.
However, one of the most visible and committed 9/11 Truth Candidates polled very well. Bob Bowman, Democratic candidate for US Congress in Florida's 15th District, tallied more than 90,000 votes and garnered 44% of the total votes cast. All this, despite being outspent by more than 10-1 by his Republican opponent.
Bowman has been a powerful speaker for 9/11 Truth for several years. We hope this wakes up Democrats around the country to the power of the 9/11 Truth message. It's a rallying point for millions of voters, and a great way for the party to build on its new momentum.
3. Congratulations Democrats, Now Do Your Job!
Speaking of the Democrats' election victory, it's more important than ever to keep the pressure on them. A new web site, www.congratulationsdemocratsnowdoyourjob.com, lists 11 critically important initiatives the democrats should immediately push for, including a new investigation into the 9/11 attacks.
Another critically important element is the call for immediate repeal of the Military Commissions Act. Find out if your Congressperson or Senator voted for this appalling legislation at http://www.govtrack.us/congress/vote.xpd?vote=s2006-25 (yes, a number of Dems voted for this heinous bill) and http://www.govtrack.us/congress/vote.xpd?vote=h2006-491. As specific opportunities to join with others in demanding repeal are identified and coordinated, we will post that information to 911truth.org.
Other commentators have emphasized the importance of immediately pressuring the Democrats. See, for instance, Bruce Gagnon's article at http://www.counterpunch.org/gagnon11082006.html.
4. Your Thoughts, Please!
911Truth.org's steering committee needs to hear from you. Given the recent shift in the political scene, what difference does/might that make in our efforts? What should we be doing? Where should we focus? What coalitions can we be working toward now? Or should there be any change at all in our efforts... As Janice often notes, 911Truth.org has a few steering committee members, and about 20,000 of us all together (58,000 on some days)! Your comments, opinions, and suggestions are critically important. And while we can't respond to every email, every single one is read and considered. Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts. We are the People! We must continue to work, harder than ever now, from our collectively growing, loud, adamant, and insistent voice!!
5. New Website
911truth.org steering committee member and co-founder of the Colorado 9/11 Visibility Project Michael Wolsey has launched a new website. It can be found at www.visibility911.com
911courage.org has launched a "Leafletting for Whistleblowers" campaign, based on the call by Daniel Ellsberg (The Truth Telling Project) for whistleblowers to come forward. Leaflets and more details are available at the site, in addition to a November 9th press release, "911Courage.org Leafletter to Plead Guilty to Trespass Charge--9/11 Activist to Request Maximum Sentence."
As always, we thank each of you for your important and courageous work!
