Monday April 16 – 7pm to 10pm Mulkey Auditorium;
Independent Film Festival Hosted by SOU Campus STUDENTS FOR TRUTH:

Loose Change, will prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that what happened on September 11, 2001 was no act carried out by nineteen hijackers affiliated with Al Qaeda, nor a plan implemented by Osama Bin Laden. Instead, the infamous event was a cold, calculated, and malicious attack on the American people carried out by a group
of tyrants ready and willing to do whatever it takes to keep their strangled hold on this country; 9/11 was a self-inflicted wound.

All that is asked of you when viewing the documentary produced by Dylan Avery is to watch it with an open mind–set aside your political beliefs indefinitely. Remember, Loose Change is only an eye-opener; new evidence of the inside-job is revealed each and every day.
