9/11 Truth Activist Sander Hicks Announces Run for US Senate (Green Party, NY)
New York City's leading 9/11 truth author, Sander Hicks, once again is determined to do the impossible.
On Friday, May 1, Hicks filed his papers with the Green Party secretary. He pledged to campaign hard on a platform of "Truth, Transparency, Peace and Real Economics" in his bid to win the Green Party nomination for US Senate.
Truth and peace activists are invited to participate in campaign kick-off events on Wednesday, May 5, in the East Village. This rambunctious campaign sparks off with a whole night of rocking live music, with Hicks' new band, and a few words from Hicks at 9 PM, at Webster Hall.
Last month, Hicks was interviewed on ABC's Nightline, making the case regarding "Treason in America" at a conference. With this campaign, the truth about 9/11 will hit the mainstream, once again. For 9/11 Truth activists, this good news comes at a time it is most needed.
Despite the Movement's recent setbacks in the courts, for nine years, Hicks has never accepted "no" for an answer. Hicks has physically confronted Rudy Giuliani, Eliot Spitzer, Dick Cheney, Richard Ben Veniste, and the Shreveport FBI, in an attempt to penetrate the cover-up around the biggest crime of our time.
Hicks invites all the NY and NJ truth movement faithful to come lend a hand and make this OUR US SENATE campaign. Hicks is running against Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand. Gillibrand has made promises to support a new investigation of 9/11, but has not delivered. Later, Gillibrand supported moving the controversial KSM trial from New York, but did not question the premise of that upcoming trial. In May, 2009, she was told of the international study that found military-grade Nano-thermite explosives in the four samples of Ground Zero dust. Yet she has done nothing with that burning evidence.
TIME FOR ACTION!
Wednesday is the campaign kick-off. The Campaign Action Squad meet at 7 PM for pizza and a meeting at Due Amici restaurant (88 3rd ave @ E. 12th Street), for the first gathering of the volunteers.
Then, the campaign kick off party/event is at fabulous nightclub Webster Hall, around the corner on E. 11th Street, at 9 PM. Hicks's own band Rebel Moon is playing, in a "5 bands for 5 bucks" bill that includes Hicks' friends Alana Sveta and Jamie Block. This series at Webster Hall is produced by East Village Anti-Folk music legend Lach, who has created community and kickass rock-folk scenes for over 25 years.
Check out Hicks and Rebel Moon's lyrics to their Truther anthem "No Conspiracy Theory" here.
