Human Rights First Statement on the 8th Anniversary of September 11

WASHINGTON - Today we mark the eighth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of
September 11, 2001, tragic events that resulted in the deaths of nearly
3000 people and sparked international conflicts that have since claimed
thousands of additional lives. We express our heartfelt condolences to
the families of the victims, as well as our unwavering support for the
men and women who continue to guard our freedom and security at home
and abroad. This year, we urge our country’s leaders to honor the
memory and sacrifice of those we have lost by restoring America’s
commitment to the rule of law and working to reclaim our nation’s role
as a world leader in the struggle for human rights.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
