The minutes of previous meeting were approved as circulated.

The draft agenda for the 3-30-11 meeting was adopted as circulated with no objection.

Bob Bowman reported that he is having a tough time getting volunteers to organize in the various cities on his upcoming speaking tour.  He observed that 9/11 truth groups appear to be losing steam and organization nationally.  On the 25th of May he will begin his California speaking tour, then swing down through Texas, Oklahoma and Florida.  From the last half of July through September he plans an East Coast speaking tour, hoping to be in NY around the 9-11 tenth anniversary.  While in California he will try to link up with Mike Gravel’s 9/11 Reinvestigation Ballot Initiative.  If you can organize Bob’s speaking tour in your city, please contact him at bob@thepatriots.us

Jeff Orling and Jonathan Mark gave a brief report on the Remember Building 7 conference . . . about 250 people were present, mostly those familiar at such events. More information on this conference is at www.InvestigateBuilding7.org The most unusual part of this 9/11 truth forum was the addition of journalists who usually had not attended such events. This panel was with Mark Crispin Miller (Professor of Media, Culture and Communication at New York University), Leslie Griffith (a journalist in newspaper, radio and television for 25 years), Craig Unger (award winning investigative reporter and author), and Dick Russell (author, his most recent “63 Documents the Government Doesn’t Want You to Read” co-authored with Jesse Ventura).

The following official name for this group was adopted by majority vote:

9/11 Truth Teleconference


A proposal by Jeff Orling  to change this group’s mission statement was amended to the following wording:

The mission of 9/11 Truth Teleconference Group is to enable activists from local 9/11 Truth and Peace & Justice groups to discuss and respond to the official account of September 11, 2001 and the policies which ensued therefrom. In the present age of corrupt media, government, and justice system, local activists from around the world, by communicating amongst themselves, seek to promote and coordinate appropriate actions in response to the ongoing cover-up by the aforementioned of the events of September 11, 2001.  An hour-long teleconference will take place on the last Wednesday of each month to discuss tactics and strategies to support the objective of widespread awareness of the truth about 9/11.

A motion to postpone consideration of this question until the next teleconference was passed by  a 7 to 6 majority vote.

A resolution proposed by Paul Zarembka regarding transparency and censorship on 9/11 Truth websites was selected as a working draft for further consideration by a 10-5 majority vote:

“We urge those responsible for citizen-oriented publications, organizations and websites to respect fully democratic practices in determining which stories, posts, messages and persons will be allowed and indeed be encouraged to be published or to post, on any topic relevant to 9/11Truth. The essence of democracy is the full airing of diverse opinions. This essence should be uncontroversial and would apply to, for instance, 911blogger.com, which has received extensive criticism.”

A special rule requiring advanced notice of  resolutions and proposals was passed without objection:

Whereas it is standard parliamentary procedure for all members to receive the text of all resolutions and other propositions in advance of their voting on them, in order to allow them time to process and understand the text, the 9/11 Truth Leaders’ National Conference Call from now on will require that all resolutions be submitted to Jonathan Mark (or current acting secretary) in advance of the circulation of the Draft Agenda, which shall be circulated no later than 48 hours before any scheduled conference call. All resolutions should be submitted by midnight of the Saturday preceding the conference call. As with all special rules, this special rule may be overridden at any time by a 2/3 majority vote of those present and voting.

Susan Wolfe of Revolution Travel Management www.nycfor911truth.com is preparing lodging and travel arrangements for those coming to New York from the 911 Truth movement for the 911 tenth anniversary events. (her email is: bliu.nine11@gmail.com) Jonathan had invited her to join the teleconference at her facebook page from http://911blogger.com/news/2011-03-29/susan-wolfe-truth-activist-and-organiser-911-10th-anniversary-new-york

The teleconference was formally ended about 7:25 pm EST.

Respectfully submitted,

Ken Freeland, facilitator

About flybynews

Flyby News (FN) came out of the campaign to stop or expose the high risk NASA Cassini (plutonium) Earth flyby. FN's first campaign at the turn of the millennium was to prevent the expansion of the arms race and US domination of the planet with space-based weapons. Yet the theft of democracy in the US 2000 election, the Supreme Court appointment of George W. Bush as US President, and the events of September 11, 2001, led to the termination of the 1972 Ballistic Missile Treaty, along with many other actions of crimes against humanity and civil freedom. The exploitation and cover-up of September 11, 2001 led to illegal, deceptive wars, which has accelerated climate change, and the downfall of financial and social justice. Flyby News is educational and nonviolent in focus, and has supported critical campaigns for a healthy environment, human rights, justice, peace, and nonviolence, since the launching of NASA's Cassini space probe in 1997.
