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.

Bob McIlvaine, Ted Walter and 67,192 petition signatures.

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.

In gratitude,

Bob McIlvaine, Father of Bobby McIlvaine

Earlier today Mayor De Blasio was asked about the High-Rise Safety Initiative. Read the Crain‘s article to find out what he had to say.

This morning the New York Post published their second article about the campaign – this one focused solely on our submission of 67,000 signatures and the process going forward. Read the article here.

The Gothamist followed up with its own article, quoting 9/11 family member Valerie Lucznikowska and featuring our official campaign video. Read it here.

9/11 remains returned to World Trade Centre site

Published: 6:31AM Sunday May 11, 2014 Source: AP

http://tvnz.co.nz/world-news/unidentified-remains-returned-trade-centre-site-video-5968703

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.

jpegSix 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.

Dear Friend,

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.

In gratitude,

Bob McIlvaine

More than ten years since the attacks that took my son’s life, we have not received an impartial, evidence-based accounting of the events of that day, even though they have been used to justify a war we are told will not end in our lifetimes. The collapse of Building 7 is one anomaly among many, but we focus on Building 7 because it is clear that when America becomes aware of it, common sense will prevail, public demand for the truth will grow and it will pave the way to a broader investigation of 9/11. Please join me in calling upon the Manhattan District Attorney and the New York City Council to open a new investigation.”

9/11: Illegitimacy of the US Government
By Dr. Kevin Barrett
Global Research, April 01, 2013
Press TV

The absence of crushed-but-intact human bodies, office furniture and equipment, and 50% of the Towers’ mass suggests that the Twin Towers did not collapse – they exploded… This would explain why tiny human bone fragments were discovered scattered all over the roof of the neighboring Deutsche Bank building in 2006.

No simple gravitational collapse, like the one posited by US government’s official NIST Report, could possibly blast human skeletons to smithereens and deposit those smithereens all over the roof of a neighboring building.

New York City asks: What happened to the 1,116 missing 9/11 victims?
More than 11 years after the catastrophic destruction of the World Trade Center, New York City’s government is finally asking: What in the world could have happened to the missing 1,116 victims?In every building collapse in history, all of the victims’ bodies have been recovered more or less intact. That is because falling buildings crush human bodies. They do not shred them into tiny pieces, or cause them to vanish into thin air.

Yet on September 11th, 2001, the most famous “building collapses” in history somehow caused the bodies of more than 1,000 victims to magically disappear. Not even a shred of skin, a fragment of fingernail, or a shard of bone from any of these bodies was ever recovered, despite meticulous “sifting and bucketing” efforts.

But that’s not the only mystery. Hardly anything was left of the 1,634 WTC occupants who did not completely vanish. Most of the human remains discovered and DNA-identified were in the form of tiny, shredded pieces, not intact bodies.

What happened to the nearly 3,000 human bodies that were annihilated during the ten-second disappearances of the 110-story Towers? Answer: The same thing that happened to the office furniture, filing cabinets, telephones, computers, and other contents of the Towers. Virtually no remains of these objects were ever recovered, either. They – like the human bodies – were somehow transformed into a mixture of tiny shards and sub-100-micron dust, which floated out to sea and slowly settled into the Atlantic. As one of the sifters-and-bucketers remarked, the biggest piece of office furniture recovered from Ground Zero was a tiny fragment of a telephone keypad.
