About the “2014 Massachusetts 9/11 Investigation Commission Initiative”

[Excerpted and adapted from Ballotpedia]

The Massachusetts 9/11 Investigation Commission Initiative may appear on the November, 2014 general election ballot in the state of Massachusetts as an indirect initiated state statute. The initiative would establish a law that would create a Citizens’ 9/11 Investigation Commission. 

A measure was filed with the Massachusetts Attorney General and was certified by the Massachusetts Secretary of State on September 7, 2011. 

Path to the Ballot

Backers must then collect around 70,000 signatures by the December, 2013 petition drive deadline. If those signatures are deemed valid, the proposed law is then sent to the Massachusetts General Assembly for consideration.

If the general assembly does not choose to make the proposal a law, supporters must then gather additional signatures to obtain ballot access. Those signatures must be obtained from about 1/2 of 1% of voters who voted in the last governor election and supporters must submit them to local clerks.

Validated signatures must then be turned in by the first Wednesday of July to the Massachusetts Secretary of State's office.

    When will California have this

    • Ken Freeland says:

      There are unique legal challenges (and therefore high expenses) involved in getting this on the ballot in California…eventually we will post more details on a state-by-state basis

    I have heard that the 9/11 petition was circulating in Mass but that it has stopped. Please tell me that my info is wrong as I would like to sign it. Thank you.

    • Ken Freeland says:

      Janz, we will have more info on that soon…keep an eye on our homepage…in the meanwhile, there is no reason you cannot sign the petition if you are a Massachusetts citizen

    I thought that the 9/11 Truth Movement was dead. I thought it would never gain ground because the powers that be, that have a vested interest in the attacks and the coverup would never let the Truth Movement get anywhere. God Bless Mike Gravel. God Bless Cynthia McKinney. They are brave souls and I hope we prevail. Where do I sign up in Mass? How do I help get signatures?

    What is the current status of the campaign in MA ?

      The current status is that Massachusetts has a petition campaign to get approx. 70,000 signatures by 23 November in order to get the 9-11cc issue on the ballot. Resources were not available to launch this as a professional campaign (i.e., contracting with professional signature gatherers), so at this point it is a question of what volunteers will be able to do by themselves. There are some dedicated activists out there in Massachusetts, but the numbers of signatures needed is a daunting requirement, and there is less than a month and half remaining to accomplish the task.

    Do not give up this quest for the truth about the crimes comitted on Septeber 11 2001.
    Facing bitter truths is never easy but swallowing obvious and blatant lies is even more fifficult for any honest person and Patriot watching the fallout from those disasterous Bush regime years.
    If the organizers of the petitions for an independant enquiry in Massachusetts or anywhere else fail to bring this capaign  to a satisfactory conclusion this year, then regroup and build on the signature base we already have for next year.
    Nothing succeeds like persistence as the persistent lies of the  Murdoch media and its ethnic associates has proven.
    The peristent search for truth is far stronger.
    Keep at it. I certainly shall, for as long as it takes.
