Occupy Building 7

November 19 and 20

  • March from Liberty Plaza to WTC 7 at noon each day.  
  • Occupy the park in front of WTC 7 until nightfall.  
  • General Assemblies will be held at 2pm each day to discuss the direction and continuation of the Occupy Building 7 occupation after 11/20.

To all those who continue to fight for the truth about 9/11 to be revealed:

It is time for us to occupy.

The Occupy Wall Street movement is a much needed response to decades of growing inequality, financial deregulation, and zero accountability for the crimes that brought about our current economic crisis. Millions throughout the nation and across globe who feel they have no voice in our political system have come to embrace “Occupy” as an expression of their anger, frustration and hope.

Ten years later, it is time for us to give voice to our own growing frustration by aligning firmly with the Occupy movement and making 9/11 one of the key issues the Occupy movement stands for.

On Saturday November 19 and Sunday November 20, we will march from Liberty Plaza to Building 7 and occupy the park in front of Building 7 until nightfall. We hope this will mark the beginning of a sustained Occupy Building 7 movement that will grow and finally bring meaningful attention to the obvious demolition of World Trade Center Building 7 and the dire need for a new 9/11 investigation. At 2pm each day we will hold a General Assembly to discuss the direction and continuation of the Occupy Building 7 occupation after November 20.

Go to OccupyBuilding7.org to learn more and to start following #OccupyBuilding7 on Twitter. On the website you will find fliers that you can print and hand out at Liberty Plaza as well as web banners that you can post on your website to help spread the word.

We are attempting to get Occupy Building 7 on the official Occupy Wall Street calendar, and we anticipate being joined by hundreds of Occupy Wall Street protesters. Most of the protesters at Liberty Plaza are keenly aware of 9/11. A lot of them already knew about it; others have been educated over the last several weeks thanks to the 9/11 activists who have given their time and energy to be there. Let us hope that by the time November 19 rolls around, there will be hundreds, if not thousands of Occupy activists eager to help us make Occupy Building 7 a part of the broader Occupy movement.

If you can make it to New York on November 19, please meet us at Liberty Plaza at noon, and let’s make history.

  • I think this is an incredible disrespecting of the OWS movement and GA in NYC and that you are just using their hard work over the month and 1/2 to use them for your own agenda. Why don’t you go to the GA and ask them to consider supporting this protest and then YOU JOIN THEM not the other way around and seek the democratic consensus everyone else has used? Either that or drop the ‘occupy ‘ term and DO NOT leave from Liberty Plaza and just do YOUR OWN THING instead of USING/ CO-OPTING the reputation of OWS to do your own thing.
    i believe in your cause, but you cannot just skip attending their GA , requesting their help to fill your protest march numbers , and expect them to follow you. You need to follow them if you are claiming OWS has any connection to what you are doing regarding a 9/11 truth search.

  • I agree with what you are trying to do however I think that using the “occupy” name and making people think that this is part of the occupy movement is wrong! I am quite sure there are plenty of places to march from besides Liberty Park. If you believe so strongly in your cause why do you have to use the Occupy Wall Street movement to do it. Stop trying to co-opt Occupy Wall Street. The agenda is completely different.

  • I understand you want to bring your cause to the OWS. However, you should be coordinating with them instead of making your own event without having contacted them. Also, you’d find if you approached the General Assembly about including this in their day’s activities, you’d have more people marching with you. You are making the protesters finding your posts suspicious of co-opting. They have several methods of contact listed on the upper right hand side of this page. http://occupywallst.org/

  • The two should be kept seperate. There is enough dis information, them still not “getting it” ( OWS that is, or at least still pretending that they don’t), and flat out lies by the corporate/right-wing media. If issues pertaining to 9/11 get thrown in there, forget it- the media (especially FOX, obviously) will double up on their endless smear campaign.

  • The Occupy Building 7 idea sound like a good one, especially since the crimes of Sept. 11th, the ensuing cover-up of facts by institutions we are conditioned to trust, the resulting wars of empire, the methodical loss of our civil liberties, and the complete corruption by the elites of the barely functioning financial system/ponzi scheme are exactly the issues which need to be addressed. Surprising to read in the comments how this wouldn’t be well received by the Occupy Wall Street protests. There are so many important actions taking place, and so many relevant issues being discussed, its almost as if the subject of the Sept. 11th state crime against democracy and its implications that may intimidate certain activists. If its a matter of communication, surely that will happen if its not happening already. The idea of state censorship is wrong, and exposing that is in league with the agenda of most any Occupy protest’s core goals. We are occupying the City that borne the beast of our societal burdens – this focused action could only authenticate the evolving agenda.
