1,000 architects & engineers call for a real 9/11 investigation

AE911Truth will hold a press conference on Friday, February 19, at 11:00 AM at the Marines Memorial Club and Hotel in San Francisco. We will announce and honor the milestone of our achievement of obtaining 1,000 architects and engineers (A/E's) petitioning for a real investigation into the destruction of the 3 World Trade Center skyscrapers.

Invitations are being sent to more than 400 local AIA members, to many local, national, and international media outlets, and to more than 15,000 AE911Truth.org petition signers and supporters from around the world.

The press conference will include a large-screen scrolling display of all 1,000 A/E's; statements by Richard Gage, AIA, founder of AE911Truth and several petition signers; and a short ten-minute presentation of "9/11: Blueprint for Truth" – the explosive evidence for the engineered destruction of the 3 World Trade Center skyscrapers. A press kit including the AE911Truth DVD will be made available to all attendees.

We will also be inviting various leaders in the 9/11 Truth movement to this milestone event. We are working with We Are Change and other 9/11 Truth organizations to deliver hardcopy petition evidence press kits to every member of Congress.

A fund-raising and working luncheon will be held after the press conference in the hotel. It is open to all who RSVP to an imminent email invitation. Join us on February 19 in San Francisco to honor this remarkable achievement and meet some of those who have made AE911Truth one of the most respected voices in the 9/11 Truth movement.

Haiti: The U.S. created the earthquake in Haiti?

From Pravda

The Russian Navy reports that the U.S. created the earthquake in Haiti

The Russian Northern Fleet indicates that the earthquake that devastated Haiti was clearly the result of a test by the U.S. Navy through one of its earthquake weapons and drew up a diagram of linear succession in relation to earthquakes reported to have occurred by chance to the same depth in Venezuela and Honduras.

The Northern Fleet has been monitoring the movements and activities of U.S. Marines in the Caribbean since 2008 when the Americans announced their intention to reestablish the Fourth Fleet, which was disbanded in 1950, and that Russia responded a year later, with the Fleet led by the nuclear-powered cruiser Peter the Great "by starting its first exercises in this region since the end of the Cold War.”

Since the end of the decade of the 70's in the last century, the U.S. "advanced a lot" in the state of its earthquake weapons and, according to these reports, they now use equipment with Pulse, Plasma and Tesla Electromagnetic and Sonic technology together with "shock wave bombs."

The report also compares the experiences of these two earthquake weapons of the U.S. Navy last week, when the test in the Pacific caused an earthquake of magnitude 6.5 to strike in the area around the town of Eureka, Calif., causing no casualties. But the test in the Caribbean caused the death of at least 140 thousand innocent people.

According to the report, it is "more than likely" that the U.S. Navy had "full knowledge" of the catastrophic damage that this test earthquake could potentially have on Haiti and had pre-positioned its Deputy Commander of the Southern Command, General PK Keen, on the island to oversee aid work if needed.

As regards the final result of the tests of these weapons, the report warns that there is a U.S. plan to destroy Iran through a series of earthquakes designed to overthrow its current Islamic regime. Additionally, according to the report, the system being tested by the USA (HAARP Project) would also create anomalies in the climate causing floods, droughts and hurricanes.

Anti-Olympic protesters use Internet to get message out

As athletes from around the world hope to set records at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, protesters could set their own.

Those opposed to both the Games taking place on what the Olympic Resistance Network calls 'unceded Indigenous land' and 'the range of social injustices perpetrated' by them, are expected to rely on cyberspace in a big way to get their message across.

'There will be the most Internet-related activity ever — light years ahead of anything we've ever seen in terms of civil disobedience,' says Leo McGrady, a veteran litigation lawyer, who runs the boutique litigation firm McGrady & Company, in Vancouver.

'People will be tweeting, and using YouTube and Facebook extensively.'

To help ensure people exercise their democratic right to disagree without breaking any laws, McGrady — with the assistance of one former and two current lawyers in his firm — has released an Olympic Edition of his Protesters' Guide to the Law of Civil Disobedience in British Columbia.

The first edition was a three-page tip sheet written in the late 1960s, when as a newly minted lawyer McGrady — now 66 years old — witnessed a fellow lawyer and friend arrested 'unnecessarily' at an anti-Vietnam War demonstration after he took offence that police were redirecting protesters.

Several versions of the guide followed, including one released in 2002 that responded to anti-strike legislation introduced by B.C.'s provincial Liberal government. Some 220,000 copies of that edition were printed and distributed, according to McGrady.

The latest Protesters' Guide for the Olympics covers 43 pages — or about double the length of the 2002 edition — with new sections addressing provincial and municipal legislation designed to protect the Olympics and its sponsors.

The guide features information on the rights and responsibilities of protesters, including a section that provides advice on participating in demonstrations ('Photo and video documentation may keep the police in line, or may prove useful evidence in cases where the police step out of line.')

One of the most dramatic illustrations of that occurred in August 2007 when more than 200 angry protesters (including many trade unionists) approached a steel fence guarded by nearly as many police at the North American Security and Prosperity Partnership meeting between Stephen Harper, George W. Bush and Mexico's Felipe Calderón in Montebello, Que.

Among the demonstrators was Dave Coles, president of the Communication, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (and a current client of McGrady's on an unrelated issue), who recognized that three of the masked protesters armed with rocks and trying to incite violence were police officers.

The confrontation was captured on video posted on YouTube, showing a group of young men — also wearing black bandanas — shouting 'Policier, policier!'

It was later revealed the masked trio were members of the Sûreté du Québec and since then, they have been summoned to appear before Quebec's Independent Police Ethics Committee.

One of those YouTube postings of the agent provocateurs has been viewed more than 496,000 times — and that medium could be an effective tool during the current anti-Olympics protests to not only record police misconduct but to also deter officers from embarking on any 'excesses' of their authority, says McGrady.

He believes the Internet will also be used to mobilize demonstrators.

The Vancouver-based Olympic Resistance Network — one of about 40 organizations supporting a 'Take Back Our City' rally that coincides with the opening ceremonies — has a comprehensive website (olympicresistance.net) listing protest-related events as part of its 'global anti-capitalist and anti-colonial convergence' against the 2010 Winter Games, which it calls a 'two-week circus.' (The site also has a Know Your Rights section for protesters.)

Nigeria killings caught on video

From Al Jazeera: [viewer discretion advised]



Nigerian police and military units carried out extra-judicial killings last year in the aftermath of clashes with members of a Muslim group in the north of the country, footage obtained by Al Jazeera appears to confirm.

An estimated 1,000 people were killed as Nigerian government forces fought Boko Haram in Borno, Yobe, Kano and Bauchi states in July and August of 2009.

But the footage obtained by Al Jazeera shows that many of the deaths occurred only after the fighting was over.

Elements of the police and army staged a follow-up operation in which house-to-house searches were conducted and individuals were apparently selected at random and taken to a police station.
