Last weekend (11-13 May 2007), a series of very unusual talks and events took place in the Northern town of Leeds. Described as the ‘Leeds Truth Festival’, an entire weekend of activities saw campaigners, activists and curious members of the public from all over Britain descend on the town.
The weekend was organised by a pressure group within the UK 9/11 Truth Movement calling themselves ‘The West Yorkshire Truth Campaign’. Some of the hot topics covered over weekend included 9/11, the Bilderberg group, Chemtrails and Cydonia.
Clever organisational skills ensured an official and timely 9/11 Truth Campaign (Britain & Ireland) AGM took place over the weekend, saving core campaigners and members of the public both time and money. I attended ‘Leeds Truth Festival’ and the 9/11 Truth Campaign AGM, and as I always try do at events like this, remain unbiased, neutral and experience it as any newcomer would, as much as I can for the following reason …
The first aim of the RINF web site is to report lies and injustices wherever I see them and to offer solutions whenever possible. I want to make it clear that I bear in mind accusations from mainstream media towards the 9/11 Truth Campaign of racism, which I take very seriously. Not at any time during the weekend did I hear remarks – or comments - which could be interpreted as such, and from my personal experiences believe the accusations to be completely unfounded.
The evening presentations began at around 8:00pm with an introduction by Ian R. Crane (former chair of the 9/11 Truth Campaign).
Management Structures behind the New World Order – by Tony Gosling
The UK’s leading expert on the highly secretive Bilderberg group who certainly lived up to his reputation. He spoke briefly about his career as a journalist for the BBC, until the constant suppression of newsworthy stories became too much for him.
He took us through the history of what some would call the ‘Illuminati’, connecting groups such as the Knights Templar and the Freemasons, Skull and Bones, right through to the current day Bilderberg group. Tony provided more information than I thought possible about this group and their history, the dept of knowledge is truly outstanding.
All sources were credited and he encouraged us to investigate the information for ourselves.
Princes of Power (Secret Societies: Then and Now) - by Joseph Skelton
Joseph continued this theme by introducing a detailed analysis of Bohemian Grove and the Cremation of Care ritual which takes place annually and appears to involve the worship of the owl god, Molech.
He also pointed out the recurring symbolism which appears throughout history and can be clearly seen in today’s society, in the form of corporate logos. He kept the mood light and upbeat even though the subject matter was relatively dark and managed to include humour in his presentation.
One of the most positive messages of the entire weekend came from this talk, where Joseph encouraged us to take action within the local community.
No ‘Leeds Truth Festival’ event on Saturday but the 9/11 Truth Campaign AGM took place and was open to the public, which is why I feel comfortable reporting it here.
I won’t go into too much detail but will give a quick overview of the proceedings.
AGM of the 9/11 Truth Campaign (Britain & Ireland)
It appears the campaign has achieved tremendous growth over the past 12 months, with over 30 new groups already established throughout the UK.
Several changes have been made to the campaign, namely Ian R. Crane standing down, an increase of Steering Committee members and the creation of a much need press office.
Ian Crane made the decision to step down as chair of the campaign, which I feel is very unfortunate but I understand the need for him to spread his wings. Ian, along with a handful of others, has been the driving force behind 9/11 truth in the UK.
He’s been a major part in establishing new groups all over the country and will be sorely missed from the campaign, but he does have plans to continue touring and spreading his message where ever he can.
Thankfully it is not the last we have heard of Ian R. Crane. So onto electing a new chair, or rather, co-chairs. Perhaps unorthodox, but the campaign will now consist of three co-chairs.
Ian Neal, founder of the UK 9/11 Truth Movement. He has created and held unity within the wider movement for several years.
Annie Machon, ex MI5 intelligence officer, former secretary of the campaign and also largely responsible for the increased growth of the campaign.
Justin Walker, a political activist in Cumbria.
Vice-chairs will consist of:
Andy Baker (South), was responsible for co-ordinating national events, including the David Ray Griffin talk in Sept 2006 and will organise forthcoming events later on in the year.
Anthony Beckett (North), formed the West Yorkshire Truth Group and organised the ‘Leeds Truth Festival’. He is key in establishing local groups in the North of England.
Morgan Stack (Ireland), member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth and is running in the elections for Irish Parliament on a 9/11 truth platform.
Belinda McKenzie will reluctantly continue to act as treasurer, although she has plenty of intriguing ideas to raise funds for the campaign.
There are several other Steering Committee members, who have not been mentioned here, as I said this just a quick overview of the proceedings. With some luck details will be published on the official 9/11 Truth Campaign web site.
One other welcome addition to the campaign included the new ‘voting rights’ rule, which now only allow groups who have organised at least one public event to vote. There is something to be learnt from this, as the second longest running group in the country do not have a right to vote. Hopefully this new rule will encourage more individuals to ’walk the talk’.
Events began at around lunch time, with…
The Occult Hand … from 9/11 to 2012 – by Ian R. Crane
Ian started off by saying “During this presentation, if you find yourself asking ‘What the fuck?’, I’m doing a good job”. Judging by the gasps from the audience throughout his 90 minute lecture, he certainly did his job right.
Reminding us of the eerie prophecies of St Malachy and touching on seemingly apocalyptic predictions of the future, Ian in fact delivered an incredibly positive message for the future of mankind.
Making it perfectly clear that the theories presented were not his own beliefs, but the beliefs of the global elite, Ian tied up Occult symbolism with the ‘return of the gods’ (a.k.a aliens) and the significance of the year 2012 for civilisations through history, and a possible new beginning for mankind. Keep an eye out for a DVD version of this presentation.
Hyperdimensional Influence on Planetary Geology – by Anthony M Beckett B.Sc. M.Sc.
This presentation was mind blowing and it’s online for you to view for yourself.
The bottom line: Is it possible that in our race to understand the solar system and the universe around it that we missed a basic fundamental principle about our own planet and about ourselves?
From the information presented in this scientific manner, the answer is undoubtedly, yes.
Skylines and Cloudbusters - by Andrew Johnson BSc.
Andrew is admin on the nineeleven.co.uk forum and member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, however this multimedia packed presentation focused on weather modification technology and Chemtrails. Drawing evidence from official documentation, we see how government bodies have potentially been able to alter our environment, the dangers in doing so and how we can protect ourselves from the effects.
The weekend also included live music and social gatherings, which I didn’t have time to stay for. I found the whole experience very interesting and feel it is a sign that the 9/11 Truth Campaign not only pushes for the call of further investigation into the events of September 11th, but also (unofficially perhaps) has fantastic resources and muscle (which forms a wider network) to highlight and act on a range of issues their members feel passionately about.
