Despite the rain 400 people from all over Europe joined the second United for Truth protest! Last Sunday's 9/11 truth protest in Brussels was a success!
BRUSSELS - SEPTEMBER 11, 2008
Last Sunday over 400 European truth activists ignored the rain and had a non-violent march in Brussels. They gathered at 2 P.M. in front of the Berlaymont building at Schuman, Brussels. At 3 P.M. they took a walk of 4 kilometers with a stop at the US Embassy. Before the rally left, the organizers delivered a letter to the assistant to Giulietto Chiesa, Euro-MP for Italy. Under police guidance they tried to deliver a letter containing their request to start an independent and international investigation to what happened in the U.S.A. just 7 years ago. They were told that the embassy was closed and didn't accept their letter unless is was delivered by mail. There were no incidents during the protests, and the organizers were once again very positive about the collaboration with the Brussels Police.
Furthermore, the platform is endorsed by various Non Governmental Organizations like The Committee for the Abolition of Third World Debt (CATMD), CODIP, ReOpen911 and ATTAC Brussels. The first Belgian political party CAP (Comité Autre Politique) joined the rally at the end.
The platform these people and organizations support is: "In solidarity with the American citizens, we demand an independent investigation of the 9/11 attacks, which were the pretext for too many wars, lies, and a serious decrease of (y)our civil rights ("anti-terrorist"-acts, secret prisons, "Patriot act", etc). We want European troops back home! We want European laws that guarantee neutrality of the internet and that explicitly forbid tracing/chipping (RFID) of human beings as well as other electronic threats on our freedom. We want democratic and public control of financial organizations (IMF, WB, etc) and the mass media. But most of all we want to get our life back."
United for Truth made its first public appearance in September 2007. They organized the first European protest in Brussels calling to support a majority of the American people, who want a re-investigation of the 9/11 attacks. This protest is coordinated by two Belgian artists; a 25 year old Dutch speaking producer who associated with a 41 year old French speaking percussionist.
