General Synopsis of the 9/11 Anniversary:
The early birds will start arriving around 7am, and at this time we usually line up peacefully along the black fences of St. Paul's Chapel on Vesey Street between Church St. & Broadway. The official MTA/Port Authority 9/11 memorial service usually lasts from 8am - 12pm with two moments of silence at 8:45am and 9:03am. During this time it is important to show the utmost respect for those who lost their lives that day and their grieving families so please, no bullhorns, shouting, chanting, yelling, etc.
Once the "official" ceremony is over, usually around noon, we march from the black fences of St. Paul's Chapel down
Vesey until we reach the WTC PATH station where WeAreChange holds their Saturday street actions. Then we engage the public, hand out fliers, setup information boards, and sometimes a special guest speaker will give a speech.
At roughly 5pm we gather at the 'Remembrance Fountain' in front of Building 7. This is where we read aloud the names of our 'Forgotten Heroes'. The First Responders who lost their lives after 9/11 and are not acknowledged during the "official" remembrance ceremony at Ground Zero.
*Note: If the New York Police Department prevents people from gathering at the traditional locations listed above, it's recommended people gather publicly at the Chase Bank across from St. Paul’s Chapel as a temporary alternative, as we did on September 11th, 2011.
