Censorship reversed - Avaaz community members support restoration of Building 7 petition

In a surprising reversal the managers of the petition website Avaaz.org have restored a petition asking NIST, Congress and President Obama to acknowledge what the free fall descent of WTC Building 7 means. This was due to a poll of randomly selected Avaaz members, the majority saying they wanted the petition to be restored.

In late April I started a petition asking NIST to come clean about the implications of free fall in Building 7. Avaaz removed it after 89 people had signed it and sent me a message claiming that my petition had violated their community petitions agreement / terms of use. It did not. Despite multiple efforts to reach Avaaz via their website, phone and even a paper letter they never replied.

On May 7 I rewrote the petition and gave it a new title: "Revise the U.S. government final report on the collapse of Building 7".

844 people signed the petition by the evening of May 22. (One friend told me he had seen 883.) Avaaz did not help AT ALL with this petition. They never featured it or made it available on their website. Every one of those 844 individuals who signed it found out about it through a friend. Hundreds of people shared it via facebook, twitter or email.

Unfortunately that night at 6:30 Avaaz removed my petition. Once again they sent me a message claiming that my petition violated their community petitions agreement / terms of use. Once again this was a false claim. Once again they refused to respond to my messages and phone calls.

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 claimed to me that I created a petition that violated their Community Agreement / Terms of Use.

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
https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/Come_clean_about_free_fall_of_the_World_Trade_Center_Building_7/ . This petition complied in every possible way with the Avaaz Community Agreement / Terms of Use and should not have been removed."

Here's the web page to use to write to them.
