Civil Disobedience at the White House for 9/11 Justice

sign
January 28, 2011
Category: ACTION

9/11 Justice activist and researcher Jon Gold has announced his intention to chain himself to the White House fence this coming Monday, January 31. 9/11 Truth News asked Gold a few questions to find out more about the upcoming action.

9/11 Truth News: Why are you going to chain yourself to the White House?

Jon Gold: To try and bring attention to the fact that we were lied to about 9/11 and that there needs to be justice and accountability for what happened. That there are family members still seeking justice for what happened and that the people of the world deserve it. When you take into account what that day has been used for – and then think about the fact that we don’t exactly know what happened that day – that is an unacceptable situation. People are dying. If that day wasn’t what we were led to believe – and it wasn’t – then the people of the world need to know about it.

911TN: This seems like a somewhat extreme action to take. Do you think more standard forms of protest have been exhausted?

Jon Gold: I have been fighting for truth, accountability, and justice for what happened that day for almost 9 years now. I have tried every avenue I can think of to bring attention to this issue, to no avail. Contacting your Representatives does nothing. Contacting the media does nothing. As I recently wrote about in support of Richard Falk, 9/11 is the “third rail.” You are not allowed to question what happened that day without being ridiculed, slandered, attacked, and so forth. Chaining yourself to a fence in an effort to bring attention to an important cause such as this one is not extreme. Using that day to murder 1000′s upon 1000′s of people that had nothing to with the attacks is extreme. Using that day to take away our civil liberties is extreme. I am 100% sure that I am doing the right thing.

911TN: What do you hope to accomplish with this action? Do you expect any media coverage? Will the action have any effect if the media ignore it?

Jon Gold: As I said, I hope to bring attention to this very important issue. I have already been told by certain alternative media outlets that they will try to cover what it is that I’m doing, and I have asked people to ask all media to cover this action, so at least some will cover it. All good actions have an effect. I believe this to be a good action.

911TN: Have you spoken to any of the 9/11 family members about your action and if so, do they support you?

Jon Gold: I have spoken to some, and I can’t speak for them, but it seems that they support what I’m trying to do. One in particular hoped that maybe someday a group of 9/11 family members would try to do the same thing.

911TN: What advice do you have for people who are concerned about the 9/11 issue but feel helpless to do anything about it?

Jon Gold: First, I think people need to take the time to learn about this issue. Don’t believe everything you hear in movies, or articles you stumble across on the internet. Do your own research, and in time, you will have your own problems with the “official account.” Steer clear of individuals who act as though you must believe this or that, and accuse you of being this or that if you don’t. Steer clear of people that have obvious agendas. Judge people by the fruits of their labor. Be supportive of the family members that are seeking justice. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the families’ efforts of the past. When you approach someone, do so in a way that isn’t “scary” or “aggressive.” Ask simple questions of people. Questions that plant a seed. Remember that you are fighting for 2,973 people that can no longer speak for themselves. Remember their families. Remember the people being killed during the 9/11 wars. Do your best. No one can ask for anything more.

London Truth Action has announced a civil disobedience action at Downing Street on the same day, in solidarity with Jon Gold.

    Not On The Fence For 9/11 Justice

    Jon Gold
    1/31/2011

    On December 16, 2010, I would estimate about 200 veterans committed an act of civil disobedience in front of the White House. Several chained themselves to the fence in one form or another. This act inspired me. As a result, I decided to commit a similar act of civil disobedience.

    Today, I did exactly that. I went to the White House to chain (handcuff) myself to the White House fence in an act of civil disobedience specifically for 9/11 Justice. Something that has been denied to the families that lost someone that day, and to the people of the world.

    In the weeks leading up to the action, several people warned me about what “might” happen to me. One person suggested that because of the Tucson shooter, they may “302″ me (put me in a mental institution). Another warned that I had better be prepared to feel sniper lasers on me from those sitting atop the White House. As it turns out, none of that happened. However, I would like to thank those people for all of the unnecessary stress they caused me. :)

    This morning, I met Erik Larsen at Cosi’s, which is right next to the White House. Thankfully, he agreed to film my action. At around 9:45, we left Cosi’s to go to Lafayette Park. I had already put one cuff on my wrist, and hid the other up my sleeve so the cops couldn’t see it. It didn’t matter as it turned out. Before the action, I decided to have a cigarette. One of the police rode their bike up to where we were sitting, and parked. He stood there for a minute or two, and then said, “are you Mr. Gold?” I responded, “Yes, that’s me.” He asked, “are you still planning on chaining yourself to the fence?” I said, “that is my intention.” He said, “I wish you wouldn’t.” To me, it was clear intimidation, but lucky for me, I am one stubborn individual.

    After the conversation with the police officer, I grabbed my sign, and walked to the White House fence. I walked back and forth for a little bit (something you are allowed to do on the White House sidewalk), and then I thought to myself, “now is as good a time as any,” and pulled out the other cuff, and latched it onto the fence.

    The police immediately took out their crime scene tape, and set up a perimeter. Here I was, all by myself, in the middle of a “crime scene.” I have to admit, aside from the officer that tried to “intimidate” me, the other officers were extremely friendly. One walked up to me and asked me if I needed a pair of gloves. Another asked if the cuff around my wrist was too tight.

    As I was at the fence, two plain clothes individuals walked up to me to ask a few questions. I thought they were from the media, but as it turns out, they were from the Secret Service. The agent asked for my number, my address, and what my intentions were. I said, “we were lied to about 9/11, and I’m trying to bring attention to that fact because the media isn’t doing it.” He again asked about my intentions, and in the back of my mind, it occurred to me that maybe he thought I was someone like the Tucson shooter. I said, “my intentions are what I told you. I am non-violent.” He said, “that’s all I wanted to know,” and left.

    It is policy for the police to give you a warning 3x before they arrest you. After the third warning, they took off the handcuffs I had on, and put on another pair. Again, a nice police officer used two sets of handcuffs because I am such a big guy. As they walked me off, I made sure to dedicate my arrest to the “Jersey Girls” (September Eleventh Advocates).

    Getting in the back of the police car was an experience in and of itself. Apparently, they never expected to arrest a 6’2″ 300+ lb individual with a size 16 shoe. I tried to get in the car, and my foot got stuck underneath the front seat. Finally, after squirming a bit, I managed to lay down in the back so they could close the door. Then, we drove off to the processing center.

    I am amazed at how quickly they let me go. From the time I was put in the car, until the time I was processed, it took no longer than 45 minutes. Compared to my last experience which was 53 hours in jail, this was a breeze.

    I am sorry to say that only one other person besides Erik and myself showed up. One of the reasons I chose to do this action was to hopefully show people who care about 9/11 Justice that we need to take it to the next level. That we can’t sit on websites arguing about whose theory is right or wrong until this issue disappears into the ether. We are coming up on 10 years since that horrible event happened, and we need to do everything we can to make sure justice is served.

    My sincerest thanks to Erik for coming to film today, and to multitude of people that supported me from afar. Thank you.

    “Are you Mr Gold?”

    Thanks for doing this Jon!

    I’m glad it was relatively painless, except for the attempts to stop you ahead of time . . .
