The face in the photo may be familiar to many, as it is that of William Rodriguez, the last man out of the WTC on 9/11. He was in the position to be the first, but ran back in to unlock crucial fire doors with his master key. The other 4 people with this key buggered off and no one knows their names to this day.

He was made a hero for saving hundreds of lives, but when the US government heard his eyewitness accounts of explosions in the buildings, they turned their back on him and be became homeless, after 19 years' work in the complex. Hundreds of others backed his story up however, including many NYC firefighters. Scientific analysis of the amazing way in which the towers fell, including Tower 7 which was not hit by a plane, shows that there was a weakening of the structres lower down and that it was not due to aviation fuel burning at the top. Seismograph records show this quite clearly, and the video footage taken by Rick Siegel from the New Jersey shore corraborate this as well.

Since 2004 he has done four speaking tours of the UK, and always elicits a reaction. Some in the press shun him because they cannot argue with him, so they sit back and take silly pot shots at him and other 9/11 survivors who can talk first hand about what really happened, not what the press thinks they ought to tell us. The BBC, for instance, told us about the collapse of Tower 7 20 MINUTES BEFORE IT HAPPENED! How did they just happen to know? They rambled on about it being a weak building when in fact it was doubly reinforced so as to facilitate joining floors for large commercial tenants. Much as one would like to see any of these silly reporters going face to face, man to man with Rodriguez, this isn't going to happen. Johann Hari, George Monbiot and their ilk are safely esconced behind a desk in Pressland.

Rodriguez, on the other hand, shows his face and stands by what he says. He will be saying it on Monday, 9 July, at the Indian YMCA in Fitzroy Square, London. Join us at 7pm in the Mahatma Ghandi Room for an exciting evening with Rodriguez, to whom I have chosen to dedicate Hemp for Victory. This event is free and open to the public, and to any journalists who dare stick their head above the parapet.
