Bringing the Simple WTC Physics to the Public

AE911Truth take the simple WTC physics to the streets, Chico, CA

As 9/11 activists, one of the perplexing dilemmas we must overcome is the often frustrating process of community outreach. How do we get people to actually actually come and listen to us? What are the most effective and practical ways of raising awareness about the inconsistencies in the official 9/11 account?

One that I have found particularly successful is giving “street presentations.” I go to where the 9/11 newcomers are.

When the objective is to spread information and awareness to as many people as possible, giving presentations “on the street” is a strong working strategy, since people experience your outreach in a familiar place they feel comfortable with. Actually you’ll be on the sidewalk, not in the middle of the street, and you may even be able to set up a small table to show your literature and DVDs to passersby.

They don’t have to work to fit it in or pay an attendance fee. It also tends to be easier to ask questions and get a fully satisfactory answer when dealing with an everyday-looking person, like you, on the street than a formidable, official-looking person at a formal presentation. Furthermore, the small crowd of initial people attracts others who are walking by and thus can spread awareness even faster.

A week or two before I give a street presentation, I make a post on Craigslist.org (an informative organization site) with the date, time, and location. I also include a short statement explaining our cause and emphasizing the fact that I will be speaking about the simple physics involved in the building collapses, not politics or conspiracy. I give my e-mail address and encourage people to come by and ask questions.

When giving the actual presentation, I keep the main focus on the physics, the forces acting on the buildings before and during the collapses. I point out that the official story, when compared to the actual features of the buildings’ destruction, simply doesn’t fit basic laws of physics. I emphasize these inconsistencies more than I point out the evidence of controlled demolition. This way, people are less inclined to associate me with the term “conspiracy theorists”. If I’m talking to somebody particularly skeptical, I may focus entirely on the physical inconsistencies and conclude the presentation with “Whatever is going on here, even if it is as simple as genuine human error, obviously calls for a reinvestigation” and I might not mention controlled demolition at all.

If I know I am demonstrating in a busy area, sometimes I will bring a simple homemade model of the structure and display a setup which points out the vectors of acting forces from gravity, impact, and redistribution after impact. This makes it easier to explain to people with no engineering background how the load is redistributed after the initial damage, and demonstrate why the force vectors don’t explain the complete, symmetrical destruction. After the presentation I hand out AE911Truth street-ready brochures and offer my e-mail address on a card to anyone who might want to contact me with further questions after doing their own research.

So far I have had a great deal of success with this approach. On average, ten to fifteen people come for the presentation; and others who are walking by stop to see what’s going on. As an individual effort it may not seem like much, but if a hundred volunteers nationwide each presented the inconsistencies of the official 9/11 story to only five people, that would be five hundred more people aware of our critically important mission.
