WTC Flag Raising Petition Surpasses 100,000 signatures in Eleven Days.
Plans to Deliver Signatures to New York City Officials being Developed.
January 26, 2002
The national online petition to the City of New York and the New York City Fire Department protesting the proposal for an altered Ground Zero Flag Raising Statue and petitioning for an historically accurate memorial has now gathered over 100,000 signatures.
The petition was started on the internet on January 15th to supplement a local petition initiated by the firefighters themselves. The online petition is open to all American citizens and to any interested foreign citizens since many citizens of many nations were killed by the terrorists on 911, and since the terrorist threat is a world-wide threat.
The City of New York has announced that they have shelved the altered statue ... but they have also announced that they are considering other options for a memorial. The online petition effort will therefore continue according to the 2nd point in the petition until such time that the final plans are announced and until those plans propose an historically accurate memorial that is not beholden to, or driven by, any political agenda whatsoever. We urge anyone supporting this effort to end revisionism and political correctness as it pertains to 911 to inform others by email, by phone, by conversation, by mail ... however possible ... asking them to sign the petition and to spread the word in a like manner for those other people to also sign the petition at:
There are plans being developed to deliver the first 100,000 signatures to City Hall in New York City at the earliest possible date. Those plans call for the delivery to occur with FDNY personnel there who support the aims of this petition, along with as many personnel from other Fire Departments and other citizens from around the country as can arrange to be there. These plans will be announced in more detail as they are finalized through email chains and press releases and on message boards and online sites like:
When those 100,000 signatures are delivered, it will be made clear that many hundreds of thousands more will be forthcoming and will also be delivered to New York City Hall as they are gathered.
The revision of historical record for political purposes , for "artistic" purposes or any other purpose is an anti-thesis of true liberty. It is the type of activity that cultures and nations have done to deceive their citizens in the past and has heralded the downfall of those cultures and nations. In recent history names like Stalin, Hitler and Mao are associated with such activities. NEVER in America. Liberty and free will choices must be based on accurate and true information for them to have any meaning. Later generations need to look at our memorials and have complete faith and confidence in their accuracy and fidelity. We the people, signing and promoting this petition effort, intend to have that critical principle applied to the horrific events of 911.
Those horrific events heralded in a new era of unity that supercedes such politically correct and politically motivated agendas. May we never forget! May we always remember and honor those who died with the truth and with a commitment to insure that the record is held inviolate, that we stamp out such revisionism and political correctness from amongst us as it pertains to any event associated with 911.
