Swann’s broadcast covers the new international billboard and sign campaign which is being formally kicked off today, on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, by 2,000 Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. The campaign is dubbed “Rethink 9/11.” Billboards and signs are up in Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Sydney and London.
The campaign features billboards, highway signs, and other media in a drive to raise public awareness of discrepancies between the official account of the event, and forensic and scientific evidence. In the press release for the campaign, AE911 founder and architect Richard Gage says:
“The official story of what happened at Ground Zero simply cannot be true. More than 2,000 professional architects and engineers, along with family members of victims and thousands of concerned citizens, believe a truly independent investigation is needed both as a matter of national security and as the key to justice for those lost on 9/11.”
The campaign continues with a congressional education and lobbying campaign next week.
Gage is a San Francisco Bay Area architect and member of the American Institute of Architects. Rethink 911 is conducting a full day of events in New York City today, culminating with a rally at 5:20pm in Times Square.
