Affinity Group: Quakers and the 9/11 Truth Movement
8:30 pm on the Patio of The Hub (just outside the Plenary hall)
The events of September 11, 2001 have been used to justify a perpetual state of war, demonize Arabs and Islam, justify torture and imprisonment without trial, and perpetrate attacks on fundamental civil and human rights. In the years since 9/11/2001 a “Truth Movement,” with a large contingent of architects, engineers, and scientists, has amassed evidence that the official story is a myth, the official investigations were a sham, and that the actual perpetrators had to have close ties with the U.S. government and military-industrial complex. The press, even the progressive press, has stigmatized this line of inquiry as “conspiracy theory,” labeled the participants “Truthers,” and has largely made mainstream discussion of the evidence taboo.
This affinity group is being convened by David Chandler of Visalia Friends Meeting. David is a physics and mathematics teacher (and Harvey Mudd College alumnus), on the board of the International Center for 9/11 Studies, and one of the lead researchers with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and Scientists for 9/11 Truth. A DVD with the results of his research (9/11 Analysis) is available at the table alongside the Walnuts from Quaker Oaks Farm.
Truth is a spiritual issue. Quakers have always been a Truth Movement. We believe it is high time to lend our support and our voice to the growing demand for truth on this issue of fundamental importance. Please attend if you would like to consider an expanded role for Quakers in the 9/11 Truth Movement.
