NYC CAN: An Open Letter To All Celebrities Who Want A New 9/11 Investigation

March For Answers
September 27, 2009 2pm Battery Park

80,000 New Yorkers have signed a petition to place a referendum for a new 9/11 investigation on this November’s ballot. Over 100 victims’ family members are leading this call, and are joined by dozens of first responders and survivors.

The city government is now attempting to silence the voice of the people by challenging the legality of the petition. NYC CAN, the sponsoring organization, is not backing down, and a legal battle with the City has unfolded. Click to read NYC CAN's legal memo.

In a truly democratic society, this monumental democratic statement and subsequent attempt to silence the voices of 80,000 voters would be widely reported in the media. In our society, such monumental efforts only register if they have the vocal support of people like you.

Now is our chance. This Sunday, September 27 at 2pm, supporters of this historic initiative will march from Battery Park past Ground Zero and the State Supreme Court all the way to the steps of City Hall.

At this critical moment in the pursuit of truth about 9/11, we ask you to join us as we MARCH FOR ANSWERS. Now is the time to stand UP and stand WITH the 80,000 proud New Yorkers who have courageously said YES, we MUST investigate 9/11!

Your single voice can allow for the voices of 80,000 New Yorkers to be heard, which in turn will bring unprecedented legitimacy to your voice when you call for a new 9/11 investigation. Together, we can take a giant step toward justice and accountability.

Please contact NYC CAN at (917) 627-8467 to be a part of this historic march.
