U.S. citizens demand truth on 9/11
Seven years after the 9/11 tragedy in New York, there are many people who say they don't trust the official version of events. The U.S. government denies all conspiracy theories but skeptics say there are still more questions than answers.
Hundreds of protesters have come out onto the streets of New York City. They roamed the streets chanting, and held peace signs in front of where the Twin Towers used to stand.
On the anniversary of the tragedy that shook the world, these people say they want answers. They are challenging the official results of the investigation into 9/11. They say what they want is the truth.
According to the 9/11 Truth Movement, the goal of officials behind 9/11 was to justify America’s wars and increase domestic control.
Meanwhile, some Americans say the beliefs of the movement are too controversial and offensive. To them the Truth Movement’s way of demanding answers is too confrontational, and that’s what turns people off.
Protesters, however, believe that more people support them than some are ready to admit.
Jonathan Freeland from 9/11 Truth Movement claims that it took him ten minutes to give away 66 'inside job' t-shirts.
Those questioning the reasons behind 9/11 say the response to what they do is often violent, because realizing their Government has allegedly been corrupted is hard for some Americans.
These people say they will continue to come out onto the streets until the time comes when there are less questions than answers.
