Yesterday was a special day for all of us who have supported the High-Rise Safety Initiative in any way. After three months of pounding the NYC pavement, we finished our petition drive.
We started petitioning on May 1st after three months of working to build support and collect donations. Thanks to the generosity and faith of so many supporters, we were able to raise enough in those early months to get the petition drive started on time. Still needing more funds to make it to our eventual goal of 100,000 signatures, your generosity continued to pave the way until this past week when we reached our final fundraising goal and then finished the job we set out to do.
All told, we gathered over 100,000 signatures from NYC voters between May 1st and July 31st, 67,000 of which were submitted on July 3rd, and 33,000 of which will be submitted on September 4th. We could not have accomplished this feat without you and your incredible commitment to this vital cause. For that, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Now the voters have spoken and it is incumbent upon the City of New York to honor their request for a measure to be placed on the ballot requiring the City to investigate the collapse of WTC 7 and any future high-rise collapses. We will learn next week whether the City will try to stand in the way of the voters. If it does, we are prepared to do battle in court, and we are confident of defeating what would be a baseless challenge to the petition.
In the meantime, let us celebrate and feel grateful for what we have accomplished. Thank you.
My name is Bob McIlvaine. My son, Bobby, was murdered on 9/11 along with nearly 3,000 other innocent people.
I am writing you today as a member of NYC CAN to ask for your support of the High-Rise Safety Initiative - a ballot initiative we are sponsoring that will require the City of New York to launch a new investigation into the destruction of WTC 7.
To put this measure on the ballot, we need to gather 110,000 signatures, and to fund our petition drive we must raise $250,000 by June 1st.
This strategy is not guaranteed to succeed, but it is promising, and one we must try.
Our petition drive can only go forward if 3,000 people come together to support the campaign. Over 400 people have donated so far.
Will you help us reach 3,000? Please go to HighRiseSafetyNYC.org to contribute.
We are counting on you.
The Investigation We've Been Building Toward Is NOW
All It Will Take Is a Modest Donation from a Few Thousand Believers
Visit HighriseSafetyNYC.org to donate today.
What is the High-rise Safety Initiative?
If passed by the voters on November 4, 2014, the High-rise Safety Initiative will require the New York City Department of Buildings to investigate the collapse of WTC 7 – but first, we need to get it on the ballot. Learn more.
Do you want to see an official investigation into the collapse of WTC 7 in 2015?
If your answer is “YES”, please donate today to help the High-rise Safety Initiative raise the funds needed to put this measure on the ballot. A donation of $25 or $50 is a small sacrifice to take a chance on this truly promising opportunity for a real investigation. We can't do it without you chipping in.

Remember Building 7:
10th Anniversary Ad Campaign Launches Today!
with our new Mini-Documentary:
“Architects & Engineers: Solving the Mystery of WTC 7”
Dear AE911Truth Supporters,
Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is pleased to announce the launch of the Remember Building 7 10th Anniversary Campaign – the most aggressive ad campaign yet. This season we are accelerating our strategic partnership with RememberBuilding7.org in order to make this 10th Anniversary a vital turning point in the pursuit of a new 9/11 investigation.
The Ballad of Mohamed Atta – Vic Sadot at Last FM on “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”. Great violin by Vic's buddy Eric Golub. This song was written after reading the Australian Broadcast Corporation interviews by Liz Jackson with Ralph Bodenstein & Volker Hauth who were buddies with Mohamed Atta in their college days. They simply could not imagine him being the person described in the US Press. Research by Daniel Hopsicker of Mad Cow News “Welcome to Terrorland” revealed a Mohamed devoid of religion & addicted to sex & drugs, who had Visas & US military training at Huffman Aviation & Pensacola Naval Base in Florida. What is myth? What is true? http://www.last.fm/music/Vic+Sadot/_/Ballad+of+Mohamed+Atta

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.
9/11 Truth activists put up a third beam of light on September 11, 2010 alongside the 2, to remind the public that a third building was also destroyed on 9/11: WTC Building 7, the most obvious instance of controlled demolition, with only minor fires, and falling symmetrically into its own footprint at near freefall acceleration

After much anticipation, an advertisement featuring footage of Building 7’s collapse, soon to be seen on TV screens all over New York City, will be unveiled on Prison Planet TV!
The “BuildingWhat?” TV Advertising Campaign is a movement-wide effort to blanket New York City with TV ads in the second half of September featuring footage of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. The campaign is cosponsored by David Ray Griffin, Richard Gage, Niels Harrit, Kevin Ryan, Bob McIlvaine, Manny Badillo, and several other leaders and organizations. The campaign seeks to raise $500,000 in order to expose over one million New Yorkers to footage of Building 7’s collapse.
The reason why the mainstream media won’t air footage of Building 7 is quite simple – because that footage is the “Zapruder film of 9/11.” On the evening of March 6, 1975 more than 11 years after the assassination of JFK, the Zapruder film was aired publicly for the first time ever, allowing millions of Americans to see with their own eyes the brutal tragedy that had unfolded a decade earlier on a sunny afternoon in Dallas. A few seconds of footage refuting the fairytale of a lone gunman changed the way a people thought about the event of their generation, and public outcry led to a new congressional investigation.
Today Building 7 gives us that same opportunity. When a judge in a New York City courtroom says, “Building WHAT?” in response to hearing the words “Building 7”, it tells us just how well Building 7 has been hidden from public view. But two weeks of TV ads can begin to change everything. For months the New York City Council and Manhattan DA have been educated about the collapse of Building 7. It is now time to raise public awareness so that a handful of courageous officials will have the public support they need to stand up and demand the truth.
Tune in today to see this ground-breaking ad aired publicly for the first time ever, and please consider donating at http://BuildingWhat.org to ensure it is seen by one million New Yorkers.
Wake Up the District Attorney With 1,000 Letters: FINAL WEEK
A message from NYC CAN:
The letter for Week 4 is our most important and most powerful one yet. Read it, and you'll agree. If there's one route the DA will most likely take to revealing the truth about September 11, 2001, it's the destruction of physical evidence at the WTC site.
This is a very important week covering Scientific Evidence for WTC 7's destruction. Please participate!
