Dear Twin Towers Supporters:
George Pataki has been doing his rotten best to force
Governor-elect Spitzer into a corner regarding the WTC. On
this Sunday 12/17 from 12-3 PM the public is invited to come
to 200 North End Avenue, Battery Park City, to sign three of
the steel beams they have ordered for the "Freedom Tower".
THERE IS SURE TO BE MAJOR NEWS COVERAGE.
We got an encouraging "sign" of sorts on Friday. The NY Post
printed six pro-Twin Towers letters! Five of them were
written by TTA supporters. The Post is read by tens of
thousands of people and many were bound to wonder why the
paper would bother if there is nothing in play. Good
Please stand with us to the best of your ability. When
people try to defeat the will of the people,* feel entitled
to manipulate our system, and pay lip-service to freedom
then they are rogues and must be challenged.
We have got to be very aware that most of the people there
will be emotionally invested in the FT and WE DO NOT WANT TO
APPEAR STRIDENT. But we want to be CLEAR. Our case stands on
its own. We will have a leaflet with bullets on "Why the
Freedom Tower is Wrong for New York and the Country." We
respect the people who will be there. Most of them haven't
been won over by Pataki, they have been fooled by him.
If you can't be there, ask yourself if you know anyone who
could be, and if you do, please spend some time on the phone
encouraging them to attend. If they tell you it's a lost
cause point out that they have no way of knowing what could
come of a successful showing on Sunday. It's going to be a
warm, beautiful day and anyone who ever wanted to see the
Towers rebuilt can afford to spend a couple of hours showing
support -- not just for the benefit of the cameras, but also
for Governor-elect Eliot Spitzer, who is still looking into
our request to halt the construction. We spoke with his
office just over a week ago and were told that it is being
OUR PROSPECTS ARE A LOT BETTER THAN THEY SEEM AND WE ASK
EVERYONE TO CLIMB INTO THE ARENA OF ACTION FOR THIS ONE DAY
-- PARTICULARLY THOSE OF YOU WHO ATTENDED THE SEPTEMBER 10TH
RALLY. If you can make up a simple sign on your computer, it
can be printed inexpensively in Black & White on Kinko's
wide format printers -- if not, please come anyway and help
pass out leaflets. We recommend two 2' x 3' signs with a
clear message that you can tape or staple onto both sides of
a stiff piece of cardboard and hold high. At 75 cents per
square foot that would cost $4.50 per side. The important
thing is to get to Kinko's with your file as soon as you
can, because they have so much going on at this time of
year. A few ideas for signs are:
-- Attorney General Spitzer: Say NO to the Fraud 'Em Tower
-- It's Not Too Late to Do the Right Thing
-- WHY Aren't We Rebuilding the Towers?
-- New Yorkers DO NOT CARE About "The Street Grid"
-- Pataki Is No Friend of Freedom
-- WTC = TWIN TOWERS
If you can make it, PLEASE come dressed for the cameras --
you never know when you may be the one face that gets
stamped on this movement. The Towers deserve our best.
It is hard to say where we will be allowed to gather but we
should be visible by our signs. It would be great to know
who is thinking of coming. Please consider sending a quick
http://www.twintowersalliance.com/nextsteps.html for more a
map of the location.
There is a lot happening which we will save for another
email after the holidays.
Thank you for all your support.
All of us at The Twin Towers Alliance
BACK WHERE THEY BELONG!
Because five years of the wrong plan for the wrong reasons
is long enough!
