Viewers scrutinise the exhibition on display at the Boat Cafe.
THIRTEEN years have passed but most people still remember where they were and what they were doing when news broke of the 9/11 terror attacks.
NZ for 9/11 Truth rejects the official explanation for the disaster which saw four American airliners hijacked and flown into landmarks in Washington DC and New York.
The tragedy resulted in 2996 deaths.
The ‘9/11 See the Evidence’ exhibition was staged in Wellington at the weekend and attracted hundreds of people.

As the United States government ponders its response to the global jihad, especially with the likes of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) now tearing through Iraq, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) squeezing the life out of Yemen, Al Shabaab terrorizing both Somalia and Kenya, Boko Haram is Nigeria, Al Nusra Front leading the charge in Syria and other Islamist groups, the news media are focusing attention on what’s commonly referred to as the 9/11 Truth Movement.
During the days following the devastating destruction and death that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, there were a number of Americans who questioned the media’s coverage of what actually happened to the World Trade Center and the U.S. Pentagon.
While in the midst the President George W. Bush administration there were several media outlets that gave credence to the voices from the 9/11 Truth Movement — of Truthers, for short — but when President Barack Obama took office, those same news media voices were no longer interested in pursuing the story and theories put forward by the so-called Truthers.
However, on April 3, 2014 the well-respected and relatively unbiased C-Span cable television show “Washington Journal” invited the usually bombastic Democratic congressman, Representative Jim McDermott who appeared to have opened up the 9/11 controversy once again.

Anger over 9/11 Museum exhibit that casts doubt on link between health problems and toxic Ground Zero air
Committees representing 9/11 survivors and first responders are demanding the museum rewrite three of the panels in the ‘After 9/11’ exhibit because they say they contain inaccurate information about the connection between exposure to toxic dust and widespread health issues.

WASHINGTON — The government has recognized that first responders became ill from working near Ground Zero — but the 9/11 Museum isn’t so sure.
Responders and surviving family members are furious that panels at the museum’s “After 9/11″ exhibit present the connection between the toxic dust around Ground Zero and the subsequent health issues of many workers as uncertain.
It’s the latest in a long list of complaints about the museum’s management and mission by victims’ families and responders, who point out that the 2011 James Zadroga Act, which helped cover victims’ health needs, settled the issue.

Last week we took the first giant step toward requiring the City of New York to investigate the collapse of WTC 7 as well as any future high-rise collapses.
We submitted over 67,000 petition signatures, more than double the requisite 30,000 signatures, thanks to you and your generous support.
Now, with all eyes on us including Mayor De Blasio and the New York City Council, the next step is to submit another petition with at least 33,000 signatures that will ensure our initiative is placed on the November 4, 2014 ballot. Already the Mayor and the City Council Speaker are moving to have the City Council vote down our proposal so that it does not appear before the voters. But we can override their veto by submitting the second petition on September 4th.
After three days of gathering signatures for the second petition, we have amassed nearly 5,000 signatures. But we cannot go any further until we raise more funds and reach our ultimate fundraising goal of $250,000 by July 25th. Right now we are $57,000 away from that goal.
It’s Now or Never and You Decide
This is a now-or-never moment for what may be our best opportunity ever to bring about a new investigation into the collapse of WTC 7 and spark unprecedented public dialogue. We are asking you to dig deep, particularly those who have not yet contributed, and also help spread the word to everyone you know. Thousands of donations and months of hard work have paved the way for you to make the difference at the time when it matters most. That time is now.
Please go to HighRiseSafetyNYC.org today and give what you can.
If we are all in this together, we can reach our goal quickly and carry this campaign forward to success.

9/11 remains returned to World Trade Centre site
Published: 6:31AM Sunday May 11, 2014 Source: AP
The unidentified remains of those killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack returned to the World Trade Centre site in a solemn procession on a foggy Saturday morning.
The remains left the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner on Manhattan’s East Side shortly before 7 a.m. in three city vehicles. They were accompanied by police and fire department vehicles with lights flashing but no sirens.
Construction workers paused as the motorcade passed, and about 10 fire-fighters stood in the cool breeze saluting the vehicles as they arrived. The remains will be transferred to a repository 21 metres underground in the same building as the National September 11 Memorial Museum.
Like many decisions involving the site of the worst terrorist attack in the U.S., the disposition of the unidentified remains has been contentious.
A group of victims’ family members who say the remains should be stored in an above-ground monument separate from the museum protested the procession. About a dozen wore black bands over their mouths at the site Saturday.
“It’s horrible. I am so angry. I am so angry. I am outraged,” said Sally Regenhard, whose fire-fighter son was killed at the trade centre.
“The human remains of my son and all of the 3,000 victims should be in a beautiful and respectful memorial, not in the basement of a museum,” she said.
Uniformed officers from the New York Police Department and Fire Department of New York and the Port Authority police carried the three caskets into the repository.
The facility will be available for family visits but will be overseen by the medical examiner.
Officials hope that improvements in technology will eventually lead to the identification of the 7,930 fragmentary remains.
The death toll stemming from the attacks at the World Trade Centre stands at 2,753. Of those, 1,115, or 41%, have not been identified.
Six days in to our Matching Gift Fundraiser we have raised $13,650 – close to a third of our $50,000 goal. Thanks to our generous matching donors that amount has been doubled, making this our most productive week since we began fundraising on February 1. Overall, we are now more than half way to the $125,000 we need to begin petitioning on May 1.
Have you donated yet?
IF NOT, now is the time to give so that we can take full advantage of this $50,000 matching funds opportunity. Can we get to $25,000 by the end of this weekend? It depends on you.
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE and you are looking for a way to help spread the word, consider sending the letter below from Bob McIlvaine to all of your friends who might be interested in supporting our campaign for a new WTC 7 investigation. Simply copy-paste the letter into your email composer, and add a little introductory note.
Thank you for your generous support.
I am writing to tell you about the High-Rise Safety Initiative’s Matching Gift Fundraiser.
I just contributed $500 because I believe the High-Rise Safety Initiative represents our best opportunity yet to obtain a real investigation into the events that took my son’s life.
Please join me by contributing what you can. Every dollar you give will be matched by two generous donors, doubling the value of your contribution.
Visit HighRiseSafetyNYC.org to learn more and make your contribution. A little bit goes a long way when we are in this together.
