Carol started the
speaking part of the meeting by reading the letter Congresswoman Anna
Eshoo sent her in response to our letters from last month. The gist of
it was that she didn't want to support impeachment work because she
thought it would "tear the country apart".
Janette talked about
what a terrifying experience it was to live through the falling of the
twin towers from her home across the street from the event. Then it was
even worse to see the government ignore the health needs of the ground
zero workers, and then to find out how deeply flawed the response to
the problem was. Unfortunately this realization took her years of
research to develop. She is convinced that anyone who really looks into
the facts surrounding what really happened will also conclude Bush
Administration policies are wrong.
David talked about how much the 9/11
truth movement has grown in the past few years. Then he agonized about
how much more needs to be done get mainstream America to wake up and
change the government. He urged anybody that is interested to attend
the next 9/11 Truth Alliance meeting.
Ken talked about how
one clear hole in the official story was the fate of WTC building 7. It
fell down after the main fires had been extinguished, it took no direct
hits, and it fell at almost free fall speeds. He felt that it looked
like the thing had been demolished. However, to do that required a lot
of planning and a lot of placing charges. At this time nobody has come
forward to shed any light on how that had happened.
Riva talked about how
some Bush Administration policies are completely illegal. She listed
things like their surveillance of Americans.
After the speeches were done we marched around Palo Alto.
Unfortunately, I couldn't take any pictures of that because I
volunteered to help push the holy 9/11 commission report. The thing has
much better wheels than it had when we pushed it out the pier in San
Francisco, but that was still a lot of work. About the time we finished
our march, this cop came and explained to Carol that she shouldn't
block up the street like that.
Everybody posed for a
group shot before we went in to ask Congresswoman Eshoo to support
impeaching Bush. Her staffer listened politely, passed around a sign in
sheet, and stamped the date and time on all the letters we gave him.
Time will tell if anything comes of it...
