Police/1st Amendment incident: NY Green questions Giuliani on 9-11

Photo from Raw Story Article, photo and video at Raw Story

Sander Hicks is a Green Party member, who was among the filed of candidates in our GPNYS statewide convention in 2006. The 16 minute video included at the bottom of the Raw Story piece has several interesting incidents, Sander’s part happens around 5 minutes 40 seconds.

The video is another interesting study in how activists react to police presence. Sander admittedly made some mistakes, but he swam his way out of it pretty gracefully, with the support of his fellow activists that made sure they swung around to observe and provide accountability to law enforcement. ~KW

“Mr. Giuliani, six years ago you told Peter Jennings that ‘we were told that the World Trade Center was going to collapse,'”

Brooklyn reporter booted after asking about ‘foreknowledge’ of 9/11

When GOP presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani stopped off for a little retail politicking at a Colorado coffee house last Saturday, he came prepared to hammer home his commitment to the war on terror, make a jab or two at Hillary Clinton, and field some tough questions about recently indicted pal Bernard Kerik — but he apparently wasn’t ready for Sander Hicks.

Hicks, a Brooklyn-based journalist, publisher and all-around multimedia maverick, is also a self-described member of the “9/11 Truth” movement, a group convinced that official explanations do not fully account for the Sept. 11 tragedies. As Giuliani shook hands and signed autographs outside of Loveland, Colorado’s Loveland Coffee Company, Hicks was waiting with a question.

“Mr. Giuliani, six years ago you told Peter Jennings that ‘we were told that the World Trade Center was going to collapse,'” Hicks said, quoting a remark from the former New York City mayor made during an interview with ABC News. “Where did you get your foreknowledge that the World Trade Center was going to collapse?”
