For us this 9 11 anniversary should be…

For us, this 9/11 anniversary should be a chance to remember the victims of the horrific crime committed in 2001 and those who died in the wars waged in its wake…. To really do justice to all the 9/11 victims, we can redouble our demands that those who misused their memory to launch illegal wars be prosecuted and jailed. We can also redouble our efforts not to let their murders be the pretext for new wars and ongoing attacks on civil liberties. That is the best way to really serve the memory of all the victims of the past decade’s carnage.

    1. Absolutely, Gabriela. In fact, I removed part of the above quote because I wanted to focus on the events of Sept 11th, 2001 and it’s effect on the world. But Derrick also mentioned another atrocity that happend on Sept. 11th 1973: “the coup d’etat against the elected government of Chile, backed by the U.S., in which more than 3,000 died and many more were exiled.” It’s amazing to me how we never seem to learn from history.
