The People Lead
After gathering tens of thousands of signatures, and the support of the Fire and Police unions, the politicians had no choice but to change their tune, and action happened rapidly, as Pataki pulled the plug on the IFC "museum" at the WTC memorial!
Take Back The Memorial says,
Every since June 8, 2005 when Debra Bulingame's op-ed, The Great Ground Zero Heist, appeared in the Wall Street Journal, we have fought together for the preservation of the dignity of Ground Zero. With your help, we have achieved a major victory toward that goal.Thanks to all who signed the petition, this is an important victory in the Culture Wars!
We will continue to monitor the plans for Ground Zero to ensure that a fitting and proper memorials is built; one that is respectful of the victims murdered that day, their families, the first responders, and the American people.
