Hip Hop Artists "Arrested Development" Endorses NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative

Grammy award winning hip-hop group Arrested Development appeared at the Highline Ballroom in NYC July 17th, 08. In line with their high level of political awareness which has influenced their music and personal activism, the lead vocalist named "Speech" gave a heartfelt endorsement of the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative. The group’s manager, Gregg Adams, lost many friends in the attacks so for him, this is personal.

The NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative is designed to create a public referendum which would enable NYC voters to establish a new, independent 9/11 Commission that would conduct a comprehensive, fact-driven investigation of the 9/11 attacks, since so many questions and contractions have yet to be resolved.

Arrested Development is just the latest in a long list of prominent Americans who have stated their support for the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative. These include former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, Tony award winning actress Christine Ebersole, Dallas Cowboy football player Mark Stepnowski, AZ state senator Karen Johnson, consumer advocate Ralph Nader, Green Party presidential candidate and former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, former FBI field agent Colleen Rowley, retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern, retired NSA analyst Wayne Madsen, former senators Mike Gravel and Lincoln Chafee, and more.

Petitioners are out collecting hundreds of signatures daily. See some photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/nyc911initiative/. Many more will be uploaded soon. Thousands of petition forms and distribution materials have been ordered weekly. Right now signed petitions are being sorted and validated against the NYC voter roles with the intent of showing the NY Board of Elections that we are organized and mean business. After this process we'll have an accurate count, for all who have been wondering about the total we're up to. This is a huge amount of work. We must hire many people to make this happen. We should also do a PR campaign to reinforce the message behing the Initiative which will educate as many New Yorkers as possible who may be unaware of the overwhelming evidence which proves the necessity of creating a new, independent investigation.

Now what's needed is financial support. We've been fortunate enough to raise money to hire 30-40 petitioners over the past few weeks which resulted in some days when we brought in 600-700 signatures. We now want to raise the totals to at least 1,000 per day. We ask for your donations to make this reality. The presidential candidates raise millions per month. We need another $25,000. We need it today. Please go to www.nyc911initiative.org and click on the Donate button.

Also, if you know NYC registered voters, urge them to go to www.nyc911initiative.org and download the petition and volunteer to help. For all who have offered their support, we thank you and will continue to do everything within our power to forward the effort for a full, authentic investigation of the most consequential event of our time.

I think these are the first musicians that I've actually heard of speak for 9/11 Truth. We're movin' on up.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?
