New Yorkers Tell Federal Officials To Stop Ignoring 9/11’s Health Effects
Hundreds of residents gathered last night at New York’s St. Paul’s Chapel – across the street from the former World Trade Center site — to demand the federal government stop ignoring the health effects from 9/11. We hear some of their voices.

Civilian Casualties, Civilian Solutions: Family Members of 9/11 Victims Spearhead Movement Against War and Violence
David Potorti lost his brother, James, at the World Trade Center on September 11th. Shortly after the attacks, David joined with other family members of those killed to form a group that called for peace. As President Bush announced his war on terror, they advocated for non-violence.

Satyagraha 100 Years Later: Gandhi Launches Modern Non-Violent Resistance Movement on Sept. 11, 1906
September 11th 2006 has a special significance. It not only marks the fifth anniversary of the attacks on New York and Washington, it also marks 100 years to the day that Mahatma Gandhi launched the modern nonviolent resistance movement. We speak with Gandhi’s grandson, Arun, about "Satyagraha."
