GROUND ZERO MEMORIAL RALLY
Monday, February 27 at noon
(Church and Liberty St. WTC site)
WHO: Advocates for 9/11 Fallen Heroes Memorial
* Union and 9/11 family leadership and supporters will also be in attendance
WHEN: Monday, February 27, 2006 at NOON
WHERE: Corners of Church and Liberty Streets at the World Trade Center site
PURPOSE: To publicly protest the memorial as it is currently proposed prior to the March groundbreaking.
UPDATE To give one example of the sheer idiocy of what is happening with the Memorial this from the Take Back the Memorial website.
"We, the undersigned, are writing to address the issue of the random listing of names in the Memorial, an issue that is very painful for an overwhelming majority of September 11th family members. Both civilian families and uniformed rescue personnel families are speaking with one voice on this issue in order to ensure that the Memorial at Ground Zero appropriately commemorates the lives of their loved ones lost during the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 attacks on our country.
What is so hard about making it easier for people to find the names of their departed loved ones? Why scramble the list?
