The 2nd 911 Truth International Conference that was held on Nov 3, 2008 at Miyakezaka Hall, right smack in the middle of Japan's political center, Nagata-cho (need I mention that other than Mr. Yukihisa Fujita, no other members of the Japanese Diet attended). In total more than 500 people attended the 10 hour session. Our distinguished 911 Truth speakers included Dr. David Ray Griffin, Akira Dojimaru, Yukihisa Fujita (a House of Councilors member of Japanese Diet), Benjamin Fulford (ex-Forbes editor/writer), and Muneo Narusawa (editorial writer of Shukan Kinyobi - Weekly Friday magazine).
At the farewell party. From Left to Right: Gen Morita, Benjamin Fulford, Ms. Fujita, Dr. Griffin, Yumi Kikuchi, Mr. Fujita, Akira Doujimaru.
There were three sections in the event...
During the first section I showed 911 Truth related films and gave a talk. I started my presentation by with a short slide show titled War and the Imperial History of Middle East. Next I let the audience watch a excerpt of the session at the Japanese Diet (Parliament) on January 10th, 2008 where Mr. Fujita questioned the Prime Minister on the legality of Japan's role in the current wars in the Middle East. I should add that his session in Parliament was not reported in the mainstream media and a month or two back it was nominated as number 24 in the top 25 Censored Stories for 2008 in the world! (Click here to check my blog post about this.).
After that I played excerpts from the following movies: 911 In Plane Site, Reopen 911, 911 Eyewitness, Loose Change 2nd Edition and Press for Truth. As many people are not aware of the explosions that occurred in the WTC Towers that were reported by various US TV stations on the day and never rebroadcast again, I made sure the audience was made aware of this very important fact.
I also showed the audience the rather suspicious live BBC report of the 'collapse' of World Trade Center Building 7. I say suspicious as the BBC reported it collapsed 20 or 30 minutes before it actually was 'pulled' or should I say 'demolished'! Next I screened the controversial interview of Aaron Russo that was made by Alex Jones just before Aaron passed away. I then played a preview of the yet to be released movie Addicted To War as well as a short video of an anti-war march in San Francisco where I made a speech about the Japanese version of Addicted To War. Finally I showed a slide show about the terrible conditions Iraqi children face today. It was made by a 15 year old American girl, and is titled WWJF (What Would Jesus Do?).
I gave thirty minutes of my session to Aoki Hidekazu, who is the author of the Japanese book 'The Collapse of Money' [Okane Houkai]. He explained the relationship between 911, The War on Terror and the current financial crisis. It was very informative and interesting.
The next Speaker was Akira Doujimaru, who is also known by his pseudonym, Love from Barcelona. He has written an amazingly easy-to understand book and has a homepage on collapse of the WTC Towers. Some of the pictures can be seen here (The site is in Japanese and has many photo's: http://doujibar.ganriki.net/00menu.html
After a one hour lunch break, Dr. David Ray Griffin gave a lecture titled 'The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, The Cover-Up, and the Exposé'. The lecture was translated to Japanese by Gen Morita and lasted over two hours. It was followed by a 30 minute question and answer session. He included material from all of his 911 books; The New Pearl Harbor, The 911 Commission Report - Omissions and Distortions, Debunking 9/11 Debunking, The Contradictions - An Open Letter Letter to the Congress and the Press, and The New Pearl Harbor Revisited. He also spoke of the latest developments in the 911 Truth Movement and the ever increasing numbers of scholars and professionals that now include architects, engineers, physicists, chemists, veterans, Hollywood entertainers and so on that have joined the 911 Truth Movement. Now it is time for political leaders to take action, he says.
The 3rd part of the program was a Panel Discussion with Yukihisa Fujita, Akira Dojimaru, Muneo Narusawa, and Benjamin Fullford. The Q&A session lasted more than one hour with a long line of participants waiting to ask their questions. As the coordinator, it was a tough job to get everyone's questions answered, but happily I can say I managed to get them all taken care of.
The conference ended with the speakers signing books, then 77 guests and staff spent another 2 hours at the farewell party for Dr. Griffin.
Dr. Griffin told me by email later that his week in Japan was one of the best weeks in his whole life.
