Get serious with Avaaz about my Building 7 petition
To all Readers of 911blogger,
Avaaz has still not responded to my message to them about removing my petition about Building 7. I wrote to them last Thursday, as soon as I realized they had taken it down. I also mailed them a letter in the U.S. mail that went out Saturday or today.
They have falsely told other Avaaz members that I did so.
They have removed the petition from my account too so that it says that I have not created any petitions.
Will you help me?
Please write to Avaaz and ask them to reinstate my petition.
You could write a 2 line message; copy and paste the following:
"Please reinstate the petition about World Trade Center Building 7 that was at
Here's the web page to use to write to them.
They did provide an email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, however as soon as I wrote to that address they sent me an automated response saying most of what they receive at that email address is spam and asking me to write to them at http://www.avaaz.org/en/contact
If you feel like it, include the text of my petition in your message to Avaaz. I will copy and paste it into this message at the end.
It will be interesting to see how Avaaz responds to being the target of a petition. So far they have been completely dishonest and acted contrary to the principles on which Avaaz claims it operates.
Also, could you send me a quick note saying that you wrote to Avaaz? Mark@FreewayBlogging.com
This petition had gotten 89 signatures as of last Wednesday night after only 2 days. I am sure it would have passed the first benchmark, 100 signatures, by Thursday morning if it had not been removed.
The above message appears on the "Hillary tell Karimov . . . ." petition but not on the "Save the Bees" or "Save the Rhinos" petitions. But in any case the best way to get my Building 7 petition reinstated is to have many Avaaz members write to them and request it. So far they have ignored my request.
Thanks to Kawika who blogged about this on April 24 in
Below is the text of my petition which was on the Avaaz.org website at:
Building 7 of the World Trade Center, a 47 story building, was reduced to a pile of rubble in about 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001. NIST produced a preliminary draft of their final report in August, 2008 omitting the fact that Building 7 fell at free fall acceleration for part of its descent. After a physicist challenged NIST on this point the final report, in November 2008 admitted free fall acceleration for 105' or 2.5 seconds. However NIST still claimed that fires were the cause.
Final Report on the Collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, NIST NCSTAR 1A, page 48, “A more detailed analysis of the descent of the north face found . . . (2) a freefall descent over approximately eight stories at gravitational acceleration for approximately 2.25 s . . . .”
NIST, a U.S. government agency, has already admitted the scientific fact of free fall in Building 7. Now it should admit what that means; that the entire building structure was removed before Building 7 began to fall. This means explosive controlled demolition.
This gives a very different understanding of what really happened on 9/11. It implies a very different story about who caused it.
Bringing peace to the U.S. and the Middle East, saving American and foreign lives, begins with an honest evaluation of the free fall descent of WTC Building 7.
