September 11, 2012The eighth annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival will explore events related to 9/11, what featured speaker, professor, author, former diplomat, Peter Dale Scott has termed “deep events” — those that are systematically ignored or falsified in the mainstream media and public consciousness.
- WHAT: 9/11 Truth Film Festival
- WHERE: Grand Lake Theater, Oakland, CA
- WHEN: September 11, 2012, 2:00 p.m. till 11:00 p.m.
The Film Festival, will be held again at the historic Grand LakeTheater, 3200 Grand Ave, Oakland, on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 from 2 pm to 11 pm, and is a benefit for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance. Tickets are $10- $7 at the door.
9/11 bears the fingerprints of an audacious false flag operation, but it also fits into a long historical pattern of events designed to provoke and alter public sentiment and behavior.
A range of films and film excerpts, along with speakers, will analyze multiple events, including the Oakland bombing of activist Judi Bari, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the 7/7 London bombings.
September 30, 2011"'Journalism is the rough draft of history,' [Mickey Huff] notes, 'and if you have these mainstream corporate news outlets getting so much of it wrong or missing it, how does that impact historical construction?'"
