Speakers, Activists to Rally on 9/11 Anniversary

Speakers, Activists to Rally at White House on 9/11 Anniversary

A mass rally to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 will be held on Tuesday, September 11, 2007, from noon to 3:00 p.m. at Lafayette Park, in front of the White House. The rally is sponsored by dc911truth.org and will feature speeches by a number of leading authors and activists. It is part of similar commemorations being held on the 11th and on preceding days in New York and other major cities worldwide.

This event is the result of the collaboration of the 911truth movement with members of the antiwar and impeachment movements. The message of the event is three-fold: Impeach the Bush administration, end the war, and re-investigate the crimes of September 11, 2001.

The rally will also celebrate the end of a long journey for walkers from around the country who have come to Washington to highlight their cause. For March of the People founder Mario Penalver, who has led the 800-mile trek from Chicago, the message is "Impeach the Bush administration and bring our troops home. " For Brother Raymond and Brother Elliot of Beit Shalom Ministries who have walked 1500 miles from Denver, the message is "Real Christians don't choose war." And for Vietnam veteran and pastor Bill McDannell who walked across the continent from San Diego, the message is "End the wars."

The rally will include live music and will feature the following distinguished speakers:

Webster Tarpley, author of, "9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA" David Lindorff, co-author of "The Case for Impeachment " William Pepper, lawyer and barrister, author of "An Act of State" Ralph Schoenman and Mya Shone, hosts of the radio program, Taking Aim Carlo Hawk Walker, Native American, Vietnam veteran and peacemaker Rev. Grayland Hagler, Pastor, Plymouth Congregational Church, Washington

A live webcast is being planned to link with events at Ground Zero and elsewhere in New York City. Radio station WPFW-FM, the local Pacifica affiliate, will be broadcasting part of the event, along with other special programs commemorating the 9/11 anniversary.

ENDS

dc911truth.org is a grassroots organization of citizens, activists, and researchers seeking to raise public awareness of the historical context of U.S. false flag terrorism, culminating in the events of September 11, and to affiliate with others sharing these goals towards peaceful reformation of the American political process.
