The Making of 9/11 Activists

By Jerry Mazza, Online Journal Associate Editor Sep 15, 2010

Among the clash of voices near Ground Zero this 9/11, we had the shouts for and against an Islamic Cultural Center, creating another layer of chaos and diversion amidst the people, thanks to the Islamic Cultural Center’s Council on Foreign Relations funded Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. The bullhorns could be heard from the intended site of the old Burlington Coat Factory several blocks away from where I stood with members of WeAreChange at Trinity Church in near silence.

This as a zealot of Terry Jones ignited a Koran during the event. “A hate-filled fanatic ripped pages out of a Koran and lit them on Saturday amid the chaos outside the planned community center and mosque near Ground Zero. His logic was ‘f they can burn American flags, I can burn the Koran.’ He also claimed, we ‘Americans should never be afraid to give our opinion.’” Are we, ever?

Witnesses called it “a ghastly display of fervor,” inspired by the Florida nut-case pastor who swore he’d torch the holy book earlier in the week. All of this overshadowed what should have been a somber day. The book-burner was not arrested but escorted away.

A Noble Lie - Oklahoma City 1995 - PREMIERED in NYC

Noble Lie: a myth or untruth knowingly told by the elite to maintain social harmony, or the social position of that elite.

The 1995 bombing in Oklahoma City was a direct blow to the heart of America. 169 people were killed, including nineteen children. For years following the bombing, thousands of victims’ family members, survivors, rescuers, and ordinary Americans, have questioned the official explanation for that tragedy. Largely ignored by the government and censored by the mainstream media, these questions will not go away until history records the whole truth and justice is rendered for all.

A Noble Lie is the culmination of years of field research, interviews and investigative reporting conducted by independent journalists and ordinary citizens in their quest to find the truth. At times risking their lives and their sanity, the evidence they have uncovered threatens to blow the lid off of the official story of the bombing.

Utilizing unseen-before footage and explosive eyewitness testimony, A Noble Lie will change forever the way you look at the face of terrorism.

BUILDING WHAT?! Day 14 (and important Day 17 info!)

Fellow Advocates:

Please note that City Council offices will be closed tomorrow, Friday, April 2 in observance of Good Friday. Building WHAT?! will resume full force on Monday, April 5, and culminate on Wednesday, April 7 with the Speaker of the City Council, Christine Quinn, who will be the only council member we contact that day. Our goal for the Speaker's office is 1,000 phone calls and faxes, so please be sure to participate on Wednesday, April 7 - with only one person to contact it's very easy!

Also, just to reiterate, please be sure to direct the aides to "A Message From Bob McIlvaine" on the NYC CAN home page so they see footage of Building 7 and learn what the pursuit of truth is all about.

Thank you!

As always, two simple rules for participating in this campaign:

1) Talk only about World Trade Center Building 7

2) Be courteous and respectful

Each morning NYC CAN informs the council members’ offices that anyone who is disrespectful, or who mentions other aspects of 9/11, is trying to sabotage the legitimate call for a proper investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. And to ensure that opponents of truth do not undermine our effort, we will need each and every one of you to get involved and drown out their vitriolic voice with courtesy, clarity and honesty.

Building What?! Day 12

Fellow Advocates:

Thank you for making Day 11 another eye-opening day! One caller had this to report:
"Called all three today - ladies at Reyna and Rivera's offices were very receptive to the news about Building 7... None of the three had even heard of Building 7 before this calling campaign. I did my best to inform - got some "wow" responses!"

Building What?! Day 11 (7 Days to Go!)

Fellow Advocates:

Thank you for sticking with it and making it easy for the City Council to listen to us with your polite and focused manner! So far all of the offices have told us they were pleased with how we have been communicating our message. Rest assured they are taking notice of what we have to say.

As we head into the final seven days of our campaign, we will be contacting some key council members whose support we will be counting on to make the City Council address Building 7, The Salomon Brothers building. So please be sure to continue what you are doing and make the effort end with a crescendo.

If you haven't gotten involved yet, please consider doing so. One participant had this to say on Friday: "I'm pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to make a few simple calls to the Council Members. Their aides seem friendly and sincere, and are telling me they're getting over 100 calls per day. They all promise that the Members will be looking into WTC 7. It feels good to help spread the word."

We have three points to make:

Building What?! Day 7

Fellow Advocates:

Thank you for keeping Building What?! going full blast. Our numbers are high and the simplicity of our message is opening eyes. Think about it this way: two weeks from today the entire New York City Council and all of their staff will know that 1,100+ architects and engineers are calling for a new investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. Almost all of them will have seen footage of WTC 7, and a vast majority, those capable of being honest with themselves, will know that office fires did not bring it down. That in itself is a remarkable accomplishment, but more importantly, we are creating the kind of awareness that leads to unforeseeable and uncontrollable developments.

Day 6 - Letter from 9/11 Widow to Councilman Garodnick

Fellow Advocates:

Thank you to everyone who participated in the first week of the Building What?! campaign.

So far, we have contacted 15 of the 51 members of the New York City Council. When we are done with all 51 council members, there will be a big elephant in the room at City Hall. NYC CAN is in the process of meeting with individual council members, educating them in-depth and urging them not to let the elephant go ignored. Don’t expect immediate results, but do expect the seeds we are all are planting together to bloom as public opinion continues to shift in our favor.

On Thursday, 9/11 family member Jane Pollicino sent a powerful letter to one of Council Member Daniel Garodnick’s aides that surely found its way to the council member.

Fellow Advocates:

Thank you to everyone who helped make Building What?! Day 3 an even greater success.

Before giving Day 3’s quotes and Day 4’s council member info, we have two important updates to make:

1) Starting tomorrow, Day 5, instructions will no longer be sent through email blasts. Please go to NYCCAN.org, where instructions for that day will be posted.

Repeat: there will not be an action alert in your inbox on Friday. Please be sure to go to NYCCAN.org on your own to get the instructions.

It is crucial that the same number of people participate once we stop sending out email blasts, so, on Friday, we will ask you to send an email to info@nyccan.org notifying us that you participated that day.

BUILDING WHAT?! Day 3 (and Day 2 Recap)

Fellow Advocates:

Thank you to everyone who helped make Building What?! Day 2 a great success.

Quotes from Day 2:
________________________________________

"I cannot tell you how happy I am that you are doing this extremely smart campaign... Nothing can be more important at this point. The aides tell me they've been inundated with calls from all over the country."

"She was very nice, she was unaware and said it makes you really think about it ... [Another] said all the council members are aware the calls will be made to them over the next couple of weeks. Said they have not decided what kind of statement to make, though they are all aware of it."
