A giant banner that read '9/11 inside job' was on display at this past weekend's Live Earth concert in London, reaching a potential audience of 2 billion people, before the truthers responsible for the wake-up call had the banner stolen, were briefly detained and then told to leave by security.East Anglia Truth (http://www.eastangliatruth.com), a British group who specialize in 9/11 truth activism, chose to turn Al Gore's Wembley Stadium propaganda bandwagon into a showcase for real issues with a huge black banner that also carried the 'Infowars.com' legend. The banner was visible throughout the performance of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Though some slick editing obviously took place during the BBC live feed, we were able to confirm that the banner was prominently displayed on other TV coverage and highlights packages of the event, which meant that the message got out to a potential audience of 2 billion people, as well as those in the crowd at Wembley.
The group had the opportunity to display the banner for some time before they were approached by security and it was confiscated. They were then briefly detained and ordered to follow the security guards, who took them to "speak to management," but the men disappeared and the group were allowed to leave.
The group are approached by security who confiscate their banner. Many other banners were on display at Live Earth but it seems the message of 9/11 truth was not welcome at this so-called "educational" event.
Johnny explains in his video blog what happened during the event.
We commend East Anglia Truth for their fantastic educational activism and hope that this inspires others to follow their lead and hijack establishment PR extravaganzas to push the real issues that we face.
