It was a windy Wellington day, so it was well that we planned our December action for the Railway subway. There were four of us working the area for about 1 1/2 hours. We distributed about 290 DVDs, about 200 of the most recent AE911Truth DVD, “Experts Speak Out”, and some older combo DVDs. Each person who received a DVD also received a flyer, either our great Whistle-blowers flyer, or the fact-filled AE911Truth flyer.
Once again, we had Mike’s thought provoking placards lining two of the hallways as people approached, and two of our large banners. Even those who did not glance at us or take a DVD were confronted with the uncomfortable fruits of 9/11, including senseless, illegal wars and the loss of civil rights and privacy.
As usual, we had no takers from the many uniformed military who paraded through, but they did notice the signage and seemed curious about it. I managed to put a DVD in the hands of a local TV journalist, who seemed very perplexed at our presence. I’m not anticipating any increased MSM coverage as a result, but perhaps he will at least absorb a bit of information.
Towards the end we had the special treat of the virtuoso violin busking of Jonathan Tanner. His selections covered a wide range, from classical pieces by Vivaldi and Bach, to fiddle tunes, pop standards and some amazing jazz playing as well. It seemed that his music caused people to slow down a bit and perhaps become more receptive to our message.
We wish you the best for the holidays, and hope that more of you can join us in our actions in 2013.
