BREAKING: 9/11 Families March on City Hall As City Seeks to Stop Fresh Probe of Attacks from Going on November Ballot;
NY Supreme Court Hearing 9:30AM Tuesday Will Determine Fate of Referendum
March For Answers 9/27/09
New York City — Yesterday, The New York City Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN), a group comprising 9/11 family members, first responders and survivors, led 300 New Yorkers from Battery Park to City Hall in protest of the City’s attempt to block the referendum for a fresh probe of the 9/11 attacks from going on the November ballot.
Today, the Court ordered litigants to present arguments before Judge Edward Lehner at a hearing scheduled for 9:30AM, Tuesday at the New York Supreme Court, Room 252, 60 Centre Street.
On Sunday, 9/11 family member Manny Badillo welcomed the crowd at Battery Park, “Today we are marching peaceably to let the world know that the City of NY is defying the will of the people to have one question on the ballot, the question to have a proper independent investigation to answer 100% of the questions raised by the 9/11 families.”
Mark Crispin Miller, author and professor of Media Studies at NYU spoke of the lack of accountability. He noted that after 9/11 “no heads rolled”; until recently when Obama adviser Van Jones was forced to resign because he [ Ed.: allegedly ] signed the “9/11 Truth Statement” in 2004.…Continue reading

NYC CAN’s Historic
MARCH FOR ANSWERS
Sunday September 27 at 2pm
From Battery Park to City Hall
via Ground Zero, The City Clerk and The State Supreme Court
Bob McIlvaine – 9/11 Family Member
Manny Badillo – 9/11 Family Member
Daniel Sunjata – Star of “Rescue Me”
Other Speakers TBA
80,000 New Yorkers have signed the petition. As with every
other NYC ballot initiative, the City of New York is denying the will of its
people to vote on the issues it considers most important.
NYC CAN responded by filing suit, and on September 9 the City conceded NYC CAN
did in fact submit enough valid signatures to put the referendum before the
voters. Now NYC CAN is battling to prove the petition is legally valid. On September
28, the referee will report on the petition’s legality, and a final determination
will be made in the days that follow.
On the eve of the referee’s decision, let us take to the streets in the THOUSANDS
on behalf of the families, first responders and survivors of September 11th
and the 80,000 New Yorkers who signed the petition. As the climate ripens and
public opinion continues to swing in favor of a new investigation, this is our
opportunity to send a message like never before. If we stand together, we can

New Organization Formed, 9/11/09
Welcome to JOMP911T
Thank you for your interest in discovering and reporting the truth. We are
a non-partisan organization whose goals are to inspire, organize and unite media
professionals to first uncover and then report on what really happened on September
11, 2001. These efforts, along with those of other professional organizations,
will ultimately lead to the convening of a real investigatory body where seeking
the truth will be the guiding principle, not political expediency.
The importance of the media as a prime mover is encapsulated in the quotes
We invite you to browse our website, read the materials, and, hopefully, sign
our petition of support for a new 9/11 investigation. With your time and effort
a new investigation will be increasingly likely. We sincerely appreciate your
Journalists and Other Media Professionals for 9/11 Truth (JOMP911T) is an
international organization of journalists and other media professionals who
have, unlike the mainstream (corporate) media, been reporting information that
challenges the official account of 9/11.
We seek an independent investigation, unfettered by political constraints,
which has full subpoena powers and examines all of the evidence relevant to
determining what happened on 9/11. To date, virtually all of the evidence that
conflicts with the official account has been ignored by the mass media.
Who We Are
We are a group of 5 diverse New England citizens. A number of common interests
drew us together and this website is the result.
We passionately… Continue reading
Upcoming Sydney Conference to Demonstrate the Three Building Collapses
on 9/11 Were a Controlled Demolition
Sydney, Australia, September 14, 2009 — Truth Action
Australia and 911oz.com will host an International Conference called “The
Hard Evidence” to critically examine the three building Collapses in New
York on September 11, 2001. The official explanation of these building collapse
1, 2 and 7 of the World Trade Center Complex have been attributed primarily
to fire damage causing a “global collapse”, which independent scientific
research has found an entirely insufficient explanation. A group of Architects
and Engineers, approaching one thousand members, is demanding a new investigation
of these building collapses based on hard physical evidence, witness testimony,
video evidence and strict structural analysis using the original blueprints.
The one day event will be comprised of two presentations and an expert panel
discussion, inviting members of the press and public to ask hard technical questions
of the relevant experts. The morning lecture will be from experienced Architect
Richard Gage AIA, representing “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth”,
presenting “9/11: Blueprint for Truth — The Architecture of Destruction”.
The afternoon presentation will be from Professor Steven Jones Ph.D presenting
research based on his scientific team’s recent published findings asking
“What is Nanothermite a High-tech Explosive Material Doing in the Dust
from WTC Building Collapses on 9/11?” A late afternoon Panel discussion
will follow comprised of highly qualified experts including Paul Mason Structural
Engineer, Chemist Dr Frank Legge and Dr David Leifer a Senior Lecturer… Continue reading

City of New York Concedes 9/11 Coalition Has 30,000 Valid Signatures To Put Referendum For 9/11 Investigation on November Ballot
New York — In a last minute decision, lawyers for the City of New York have conceded that the New York City Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN), a group comprising 9/11 family members, first responders and survivors, indeed did submit over 30,000 valid signatures to put the referendum for a new 9/11 investigation before the voters of New York City this November.
In an earlier letter from the City Clerk dated July 24, 2009, the City had claimed only 26,003 signatures were valid, 3,997 short of the requisite 30,000. The City’s concession that over 30,000 of the 52,000 signatures submitted were in fact valid paves the way for lawyers from both sides to argue the legality of petition.
Asked whether he thought NYC CAN could overcome the City’s challenge to the legality of the petition, legal counsel to the petitioners, Dennis McMahon, said, “Absolutely. Although the City has an incredibly successful record of shooting down ballot initiatives, we will be arguing from a fresh perspective that reflects the unprecedented events of 9/11. We believe the courts will see how critical an issue this is, and be persuaded with our legal reasoning and point of view.” A final determination on the legality of the petition will be reached in time for the referendum to be included on the November… Continue reading

Debates at Lolita Bar: “Should NY Reopen the 9/11 Investigation?”
Wednesday, September 2, at 8pm, with:
Sander Hicks, author of The Big Wedding, arguing yes.
Saul Devitt, computer programmer and skeptic, arguing no.
(And the group NYC CAN is fighting in court, meanwhile, over whether to make it a ballot initiative question, making the topic timely again.)
Hosted by Todd Seavey and moderated by Michel Evanchik.
Free admission, cash bar. Basement level of Lolita Bar at 266 Broome St. (New York City) at the corner of Allen St. on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, one block south
and three west of the Delancey St. F, J, M, Z subway stop.

ACLU Safe and free – Restore our Constitutional Rights
ACLU Obtains Detailed Official Record Of CIA Torture Program
The Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) documents describe enhanced interrogation techniques used as late as 2007.
We need a full and thorough investigation.
Attorney General Eric Holder appointed an independent prosecutor to investigate torture. However, the very limited scope is nowhere near as thorough and broad as the investigation America really needs.
The recent release of the long-secret CIA Inspector General’s report, detailing horrific prisoner abuse, only reinforces the need for a full and thorough, independent investigation of the Bush torture program.
We need to make it clear that, while we’re pleased the Attorney General has launched an independent investigation, the limits he has set don’t meet the demands of justice. Urge Attorney General Holder to conduct a thorough examination of the Bush torture program.

9/11 is a historical event and it has changed the way we live today.
Subsequent to 9/11, the Bush and Blair administrations launched an aggressive
War on Terror which we were told would last the rest of our lives. Shortly after,
Afghanistan and Iraq were invaded and the blood of millions of innocents has
been spilt. Furthermore, the Patriot Act and UK Anti-Terror legislation has
eroded our civil liberties with devastating effect. The police state has never
been better funded. The mainstream media has sensationalized Islamaphobia and
Muslims are subject to countless unnecessary stops, searches, raids, arrests
and harrassements. The War on Terror is a War OF Terror.
This makes it all the more concerning when we discover that many western intelligence
agencies had foreknowledge of the attacks and failed abysmally to prevent them.
Furthermore, the 9/11 Commission Report and subsequent NIST reports are inconsistent
with records of the day and even contradictory in themselves. Scientists have
since released a peer reviewed paper on evidence of Nano-Thermate in the rubble
of ground zero and have repeatedly requested the computer model from NIST which
describes how the towers fell and which was never peer reviewed in accordance
with the scientific standards. There are also over 750 architects and engineers
who dismiss the… Continue reading

NYC CAN News Bulletin – FORWARD WIDELY August 24, 2009
SILENCING OF NYC VOTERS WILL NOT GO UNCHALLENGED
On Monday, August 10, NYC CAN began a comprehensive review of the nearly 26,000 signatures invalidated by the New York City Board of Elections and City Clerk. With 26,003 signatures accepted as valid by the City, at least 3,997 additional signatures were needed to exceed the threshold of 30,000 signatures. 10 days, 50 volunteers and 1,000 man-hours later, we are thrilled to report we have so far discovered 6,924 signatures we will argue were wrongly invalidated.
In addition, the Court has granted an extension allowing us to complete our review of 6 unfinished volumes. We anticipate having well over 7,000 additional valid signatures once the review is complete. The 50+ individuals who helped conduct the review take great pride in knowing their work has stopped the silencing of 7,000 New York City voters and allowed their voices to be heard.
On Friday, August 28, we must serve a Bill of Particulars listing all signatures we argue should be deemed valid by the Court. Special Referee Louis Crespo will begin a line-by-line review of the disputed signatures on Tuesday, September 8, and is scheduled to complete his review by Friday, September 18.
Pending the outcome of the Court’s review of the disputed signatures, lawyers for NYC CAN and the City will begin arguing the legality of the petition’s proposed amendment to the City Charter.
Looking ahead, NYC CAN will submit an additional… Continue reading

As the anniversary of 9/11 approaches once again it leads us to reflect on
what we have achieved and what is yet to be achieved by the 9/11 Truth and Justice
Campaign. One thing we all might agree on is that a more “focused”
and “deliberate” media campaign is in order this anniversary.
In this last year we have received some very powerful tools to use in our battle
against those who would see us fade away as a movement. The most powerful is
arguably the "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from 9/11 World
Trade Center Catastrophe" paper provided, peer reviewed and published by
our hard working scholars internationally. While this world-changing evidence
has received press in parts of Europe and Asia, it has not been reported on
within the corporate media of the “Coalition of the willing”, being
predominantly the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. It is important
to note these countries are also the major supporters of the “War on Terror”
having direct military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan to this day.
What I propose is an all out, all day attempt to get this controversial paper
reported on in the press by demonstrating in front of corporate media facilities
worldwide. With simply the “Thermitic Materials Paper” in one hand
and Architects and Engineers DVD “9/11 Blueprint for Truth” in the
other we have a completely rational and non-conspiratorial basis to demand that

Nearly one year ago, on August 19, 2008, 53 year old Barry Jennings died, two days before the release of the NIST Final Report on the collapse of WTC7. Jennings had bee serving as Deputy Director of Emergency Services Department for New York City, including on September 11th, 2001, when he saw and heard explosions BEFORE the Twin Towers fell, while attempting to evacuate the WTC7 Command Center with NY Corporation Counsel Michael Hess. Jennings publicly shared his experiences with reporters on the day of 9/11/01, as well as in a lengthy 2007 video interview with Dylan Avery, a small clip of which was the released; subsequently his job was repeatedly threatened and he asked that the taped interview not be released. However, after an interview with Jennings was broadcast by the BBC in their program The Third Tower ostensibly refuting what he had previously stated to Avery, Avery felt compelled to release the full original video interview to show the distortions made by the BBC. The cause of Jennings’ death has not been made public, and a private investigator hired by Avery to discover the cause and circumstances surrounding his death abruptly ended his investigation. (More detail on all of this is available at jenningsmystery.com.) In spite of the significance of Jennings’ position with NYC on 9/11 and his controversial eyewitness testimony regarding the collapse of WTC7, the media has not investigated or reported on his death, nor reported on his statements.
Widespread public action… Continue reading
