3. 9/11 Strategy Conference

Sunday, December 4th, 2005

10:00am - 1:00pm
Brainstorm -- Gathering people's best ideas..

1:00pm - 5:00pm, followed by informal gathering
Strategy Discussion -- Creating the Big Picture..

Veterans War Memorial Building, 2nd Floor, 401 Van Ness Ave., San
Francisco (Right across from City Hall, Near Civic Center BART)

On Sunday, after hearing presentations, watching some movies and
discussing the day before, we will hold an organized planning session.

First, we will work to gather a comprehensive set of strategies for
the 911 Truth Movement, problems we have faced that we want to figure
out, and the best ideas that our participants have to succeed and
overcome these obstacles.

Second, these ideas will be typed, printed, and arranged on the wall
in The Big Picture. The process will involve determining which of the
strategies will best succeed, and coming up with solutions to the
problems our movement has faced, as well as deciding on our medium and
long term strategy for action.

At 2:00pm - 3:30pm Susan Strong will facilitate a planning session on
'articulating our message' and putting it into a form that will reach
the widest, most decisive audience.


SHORT LIST OF TOPICS WE WILL WORK ON
---------------------------------------
How can we bring together the 911 Truth Movement and the Anti-War
Movement?
Why is most of the anti-war movement still loyal to the 911 Lie?

How can we raise the visibility of the 911 issue by running for elected
office?

How can the 911 Movement prevent delberate government misinformation
from dividing our movement and confusing the public?
How can we take advantage of the all-time high in public perception of
Bush administration lies and criminality?

Who do we need to focus our outreach on? Fellow activists still loyal
to the 911 Lie? Alternative Media? Mass Media? Youth? Democrats?
Which group is the most decisive one to fully expose 911?

What mistakes have we made in the past, and how do we not make them
anymore?

4. Listening for a Change- Every Wednesday 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.,
Lytton Plaza, Palo Alto (University x Emerson)

Since October 2001, every Wednesday, except when it is raining; I
have set up tables, banners, chairs, food, educational material, and
created a space for public dialogue on key issues. We ask the public
three questions and write down their responses-

What do you think/feel about the events of September 11th
and the U.S. government's response?

How could we defuse terrorism?"

How could we create a safer/better world for our children
and all children?

Sponsored by Women's International League for Peace and Freedom,
