UPDATE (at bottom): City’s law department tells RAW STORY that a new 9/11 investigation is ‘not a proper subject to be placed before the voters’ ‘

A lead actor from the popular FX television show “Rescue Me” joined a large group of 9/11 activists and survivors on Sunday in a march from New York City’s Battery Park to city hall.

COMMENTARY: A New 9/11 Investigation in New York City? The Voters Will Decide–If the Lawyers Let Them

by James Ridgeway
First published in his blog Unsilent Generation on 10 September 2009

Truth was obviously censored and ncomplete in the original 9/11 Commission’s report. If anyone deserves the opportunity to press on for answers, it is the people of the City of New York. The next few weeks will tell whether they are at long last given that opportunity.

In the five years since the 9/11 Commission released its studious but timid report, Americans of all political stripes have advocated for a new investigation into the attacks of September 11, 2001.…

Issued September 4, 2009

Numerous media outlets have contacted, asking us to “make sense” of Van Jones’ “strange” behavior. We have issued the following statement:

As the eighth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, what doesn’t make sense to us is that media outlets choose to impugn the character of the signatories rather than carry out your responsibility as watchdogs to call attention to the as yet unanswered questions raised in the 2004 statement. Five years later, we challenge you to finally print those same unanswered questions and pursue their answers with the same vigor with which you pursue the signatories.

Stand with Cindy Sheehan who Stands with 9/11 Truth

The Silence of the Antiwar Movement is Deafening
Cindy Sheehan’s Lonely Vigil in Obamaland

By JOHN V. WALSH August 26, 2009

A funny thing has happened on Cindy Sheehan’s long road from Crawford, Texas, to Martha’s Vineyard. Many of those who claim to lead the peace movement and who so volubly praised her actions in Crawford, TX, are not to be seen. Nor heard. The silence in fact is deafening, or as Cindy put it in an email to this writer, “crashingly deafening.” Where are the email appeals to join Cindy from The Nation or from AFSC or Peace Action or “Progressive” Democrats of America (PDA) or even Code Pink?…

NYC CAN News Bulletin – FORWARD WIDELY August 24, 2009


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.

By Brad Knickerbocker

The Christian Science Monitor

For those who had their doubts about the politics behind the Bush administration’s “war on terrorism,” Tom Ridge’s new book will fuel long-held suspicions.

9/11 survivors call for renewed probe as 8th anniversary approaches
Posted by Bob Braun/Star-Ledger Columnist August 09, 2009

The eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is a month away and some survivors
of those lost believe it’s a good time to renew an investigation into the events
of that disastrous day. New York City disagrees.

"We know we never have learned the truth, it’s as simple as that,” says
Lorie Van Auken of East Brunswick, one of the most ardent supporters of the
creation of the 9/11 commission in 2002.…

Daniel Sunjata: Donate to NYC CAN

July 14, 2009

Daniel SunjataFor years now, New Yorkers, Americans in general, and millions around the world
have been plagued with deeply troubling questions about what really happened
on September 11th, 2001. Let down and betrayed by the non-findings of the farcical
911 Commission and its white-washed “report”, victim’s family members
and patriotic citizens have taken matters into their own hands by using the
peaceful and democratic means of the New York State Constitution to resolve
the issue.…
