911 Conspiracy Theories
There are a lot of conspiracy theories about the events of 11th September
2001. The main one is the official explaniation, that Al Qaeda hijackers
flew planes into the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.
Capitalism is not a conspiracy theory it is an economic system.
What happened to WTC7 on 9/11?
7 World Trade Centre (WTC7, also known as the Salomon Brothers Building)
was 47 stories high, just 3 stories less than the highest building in the
UK, it was not an old building, construction started in 1984 and it was
completed in 1987. It was designed, and built by highly experienced
architects, engineers and contractors. WTC7 was not hit by an aeroplane on
September 11th 2001 but at 5:20pm, about 7 hours after the twin towers
came down it collapsed on it's own footprint at near free-fall-speed Prior
to the spectacular failure of WTC7 the building was emptied firefighters
knew it was going to come down and they "evacuated the area as they
prepared for the collapse" (source).
Stuctural Failure of WTC7
Fires do not generally lead to the structural failure of steel framed
buildings, "The Twin Towers and WTC 7 are the only known cases of total
structural collapse where fires played a significant role." Dr. Bement,
The NIST draft report into the collapse suggests that the failure of 3
columns (79, 80 and 81) out of 24 triggered the structural failure of the
entire building. When Dr. Sunder of NIST was asked why WTC7 and the fate
of the building was barely mentioned in the final report he admited that
they have "had trouble getting a handle on building No. 7. This isn't the
final report, for that they have gone out to tender to get the answer from
external contractors. "NIST has seen no evidence that the collapse of WTC
7 was caused by bombs, missiles or controlled demolition."

9/11: Press for Truth
This film has not been released.
9/11 Citizens' Commission: An Open Inquiry into the Attacks of September 11th
This is a 6 hour long DVD so someone would need to buy a copy and then
work out which bits to screen...
San Francisco Inquiry
This is a set of 5 DVDs available from Global Outlook, there probably
isn't time to order, watch and select extracts from these considering that
there is so much other material.
International Citizens' Inquiry into 9/11
This is a set of 28(!) DVDs, see Toronto Inquiry for their listing, again
buying, viewing adn then selecting what to show is probably not
feasible... This is probably the raw material that was used to create 9-11
Open Your Eyes the War on Terror is a Lie. It might be worth getting disk
6: 'Phase 1' ~ Carol Brouillet; 'The "Official Story"' ~ Ian Woods; '9/11
The Broad Picture' ~ M. Chossudovsky
The History of Oil
Show by Rob Newman, was shown on More4, it is available from IndyBay.
Since it's been on the telly it's not so important to screen this.
Loose Change 2nd Edition can be downloaded from Google video, it's very
slick but has many inconsistencies... is probably not really suitable for
a Indymedia screening...
The flyer will have the Matilda logo. If you are intrested in getting
involved helping out that kinda of thing e mail me back ( note on either
list this has gone to)
