Roxie Theatre 3117 16th St., San Francisco (16th St BART)
The 9/11 Inside Job, made obvious as it happened with no air defense and the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center, is now a toxic site that has poisoned and killed many members of the clean-up crew, as we saw in the movie on the failed state of the American health care insurance system, Sicko. Today, we have 2 movies on the environmental disaster at the NY site of the 9/11 Inside Job, which hopefully, combined with Sicko and a serious labor movement effort, will result in universal free healthcare for all who live in the US paid for with our tax dollars, as exists in the rest of the industrialized world :
(1) 9/11 Dust and Deceit at The World Trade Center (59 min) 2007
By Penny Little (She will be attending)
The impact of the environmental disaster after the 9/11 Inside Job will continue for years. The health of those who were exposed to the toxic dust and told that the “air is safe to breathe” and the continuing cover-up of the problems has not been adequately reported in the mainstream media. Those who were most affected are often the least able to get the help they need.
(2) The Toxic Clouds of 9/11: A Looming Health Disaster (66 min) 2006
By Allison Johnson
In this absorbing video we see the effect of the chemicals and toxins released into the environment by the collapse of the WTO towers. Despite the growing risk from these dangerous substances EPA director Christie Todd Whitman told the workers involved in the cleanup after the collapse that everything was safe to breath and later that it was safe for residents to return. The catastrophe and cover-up of 9/11 health costs is still going on for the workers, people who went to help and those who lived in the neighborhood.
Trade unionist John Sferazo from Iron Workers Local 361 and IUOE Local 138 will attend and discuss his efforts to defend the first responders. Sferazo is President and Co-Founder of Unsung Heroes Helping Heroes
