Hello and welcome to Winterlude.
Winterlude is a yearly winter festival that takes place in Ottawa on the first 3 weekends in February. Since the 11th of February won’t fall on a weekend until 2014, we decided to go out on the 8th instead. Yes, we bent the rules a little, but it was the difference between seeing hundreds of people versus thousands of people. We chose thousands.
The locals call it ‘Maple Snow’ and yes, it’s actual sap from a Maple tree which is cooled on a bed of snow and served on a stick. We also eat beaver tails. You should really come to Ottawa and check this out.
These images are a result of the Rogers 22nd International Ice-Carving Competition. Professional carvers from around the world in conjunction with the Canadian Ice Carvers’ Society spend 3 days creating these beautiful pieces of art.
This year they were placed in a covered area to prevent the sun and rain from prematurely destroying them. The lineup was far too long, so all I got were these two pics.
This month we decided to meet on the bridge that you saw in the top photo. While it was cold and windy we had a great view of the skaters below.
Tyrone took the opposite sidewalk while we waited for others to arrive.
After about a hundred discs were gone, we decided to go down below to the skaters. The wind was far too strong up on top of the bridge. When we got to the skaters, there was no wind.
The guy on the right was just passing by when he saw our banner. He had to get a pic with him holding it. Way to go buddy. We hope to see you out at a future truthaction.
We bullhorned the Rideau Canal until the cops showed up on Four-wheelers.
We gained one new member and a member from WAY back returned to join us

We held a Truth Action 4p - 5:45p on the Pearl St. Mall here in Boulder, CO. It was cold and windy, but 4 Truth troopers showed up, anyway. The foot traffic on the Mall was sparse, but we managed to hand out about 40 Truth DVDs. Hopefully, we'll have some pics soon.
A week before members of London Truth Action and We Are Change London attended The Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) annual dinner. We printed 1000 copies of Blueprint for Truth and designed a special 8 page pamphlet for each of the "1300 senior figures from the global engineering and technology community" attending.
That evening (above) was a huge success and we ended up giving out around 250+ copies of Blueprint for Truth, each with one of the 8 page pamphlets. Generally the engineers were receptive to the information having never encountered it before.
This 11th some of us met at 9am with the remainder of the dvds and pamphlets and visited over a dozen architectural and engineering firms. The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) got a visit as did many smaller organisations. All together we shifted around 250 dvds and had many positive conversations.
Later in the afternoon, after an unsuccessful attempt to report Tony Blair for war crimes at Charing Cross police station, we set up outside the National Portrait Gallery in Trafalgar Square.
We had 15 people out until late in the evening and ended up giving out 700 dvds and as many leaflets. Great vibes despite the blistering cold.

This is my first post here on truthaction.org by myself. Hope it works!
However YT has posted things for me before-I don't know how he keeps up with it. It's hard to keep up with everything 911 truth just in Minnesota alone .
This 11th day of the month Minnesota 911 Truth activists held a brief protest outside the Governor’s mansion in Saint Paul.
Minnesota 911 truth is working up to a film festival soon(Spring 2009). _________________ Truth
"Hottest handout location 500+ DVDs and some North Texas 9-11 Truth broadsheets all gone in 45 minutes. Several people came back up the train station stairway after they changed their mind about taking a disc. Thanks to all those who contributed for the DVD production.
