Building What?! Day 16 (Almost there!)


April 6, 2010

Fellow Advocates:

Today we head into our seventh meeting with a member of the New York City Council.  Your phone calls and faxes made this meeting happen, and they are making a tremendous difference in paving the way for honest and courageous council members to raise the discussion with their colleagues on the City Council.  If you want to get glimpse of the action, scroll down to the bottom of this email to read the cover letter of the packet we leave with the council members. 

Please remember we need your help tomorrow to reach our goal of 1,000 phone calls the City Council Speaker, Christine Quinn.

Thank you!

Please email us at info@nyccan.org to share what you learned from your phone calls!


 

As always, two simple rules for participating in this campaign:

1)    Talk only about World Trade Center Building 7

2)    Be courteous and respectful

Each morning NYC CAN informs the council members’ offices that anyone who is disrespectful, or who mentions other aspects of 9/11, is trying to sabotage the legitimate call for a proper investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.  And to ensure that opponents of truth do not undermine our effort, we will need each and every one of you to get involved and drown out their vitriolic voice with courtesy, clarity and honesty.


 

The Script

We have three points to make:

1)    A third building called World Trade Center Building 7 also collapsed on September 11th.  This building housed the Office of Emergency Management’s Emergency Operations Center.

 2)    The federal government issued a report saying that office fires caused this building to collapse, however, there is overwhelming physical and testimonial evidence that this building was brought down with the use of explosives. 

3)    In response, 1,100 architects and engineers have signed a petition calling for a new investigation because the federal government’s report is deeply flawed and unscientific.

Translated to a phone call:

•    Hello, my name is _________.  I would like to leave a message for Council Member ______ to ask that he/she take measures to investigate the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.  Who should I speak with?

You will either be transferred to someone else, or the receptionist will say, “you can speak with me”, or the receptionist will say, “Thank you, we will let the council member know”.  If you are given time to elaborate on your message, you say:

•    I would like to inform the council member that:

i.    A third building called World Trade Center Building 7 also collapsed on September 11th.  This building housed the Office of Emergency Management’s Emergency Operations Center.

 ii.    The federal government issued a report saying that office fires caused this building to collapse, however, there is overwhelming physical and testimonial evidence that this building was brought down with the use of explosives. 

iii.    In response, 1,100 architects and engineers have signed a petition calling for a new investigation because the federal government’s report is deeply flawed and unscientific.

•    Be sure to thank the person you are speaking with.

Dear Council Member ___________,

I am writing to ask that you take measures to open an investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.  

World Trade Center Building 7 was the third building to collapse on September 11th when it came down at 5:20 in the afternoon.  This building housed the Office of Emergency Management’s Emergency Operations Center.

An agency of the federal government called the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issued a report in 2008 saying that office fires caused this building to collapse, however, there is overwhelming physical and testimonial evidence that this building was brought down with the use of explosives.

In response, 1,100 architects and engineers have signed a petition calling for a new investigation because the federal government’s report is deeply flawed and unscientific.  To learn more, please go to the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth website, AE911Truth.org.

You can watch footage of World Trade Center Building 7 collapse by googling “WTC 7”.

Thank you very much for looking into this important matter.

Sincerely yours,

Cover Letter for today’s meeting:

April 6, 2010

 Dear Council Member:

 Thank you for meeting with my colleagues and me to discuss some of the troubling questions surrounding the events of September 11, 2001.  We are very grateful that you responded to our telephone and fax campaign aimed at helping the City Council learn about the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. 

 We come to you with the full awareness that seeking the truth about September 11th is an immense challenge politically, and that you are focused on many issues critical to the well-being of New Yorkers.  We do not expect immediate results, but we do hope that you will commit to working with your colleagues in the City Council to build support so that concrete results can be achieved when the time is right. 

 Our goal is for the City Council to open an inquiry into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, which, until September 11th, housed the Office of Emergency Management’s Emergency Operations Center on the 23rd floor.  Every facet of evidence indicates this building was demolished with the use of explosives. 

 The following materials are included in this packet to help you learn about WTC 7:

1) A road map for conducting an inquiry into the collapse of WTC 7.

2) A table of contents for the footage contained in the attached DVD.

3) An essay critiquing the federal government’s investigation of WTC 7.

4) A paper documenting the discovery of high-tech explosives in the WTC dust.

5) A 2004 poll that found 66% of New Yorkers supported a new 9/11 investigation.

 Why should we investigate 9/11 today?  Helen and Bob McIlvaine, who lost their son Bobby on 9/11, made it crystal clear by saying, “When a crime as heinous as this takes place, it is assumed that justice will be served and the perpetrators will be discovered and punished.  Much to our dismay, this has not taken place.  We only want the truth… Our only hope, at this point, is to support NYC CAN in calling for an unbiased and non-political investigation of our son’s murder.”

 As you are well aware, 9/11 has also been used to justify many questionable policies both at home and abroad.  As a member of the New York City Council, you are uniquely positioned to help put an end to those policies by dismantling the central justification for the “War on Terrorism“.  We believe this would ignite a momentous transition to more socially and economically beneficial policies, and help return our country to the principles on which it was founded.  We hope you will work with your fellow council members to seize this opportunity to fundamentally reshape our city and our country for the better.

 Sincerely,

 Ted Walter
