A CALL TO ACTION — PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY

9/11 FAMILIES, FIRST RESPONDERS AND SURVIVORS TO TAKE NEW YORK CITY TO COURT
OVER NYC CAN PETITION
SEVENTY THOUSAND New Yorkers signed the NYC CAN petition, raising their voices
in support of NYC CAN’s demand for accountability. They have chosen to
place the decision to create a new 9/11 investigation — a REAL 9/11 investigation
— exactly where it belongs: before the voters of New York City this November.
The voices of SEVENTY THOUSAND Americans who believe in democracy and believe
that government exists to serve the people — and not the other way around
— have been GAGGED by ONE so-called “PUBLIC SERVANT” —
The New York City Clerk — who denied the petition and the voice of the
Welcome to America. Democracy denied.
Did you REALLY expect those in halls of power to honor the WILL OF THE PEOPLE?
Did you expect this demand for accountability to go uncontested by those who
have forgotten the very meaning of the word? Perhaps this obstruction of democracy
would go unchallenged in THEIR America. Not in OUR America.
9/11 family members, first responders and survivors expected nothing less than
business as usual and ARE NOT HAVING IT. They are preparing to take the City
of New York to court to challenge the wrongful denial of our right to decide
on the creation of a new 9/11 investigation.

moment. TRUTH IS AT THE CROSSROADS, DEMOCRACY UNDER FIRE AND THE DEFINING MOMENT
