9/11 2011 - Memory & Protest in NYC

Created with flickr slideshow.

Thousands of people descended on Lower Manhattan for the 10th Anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, on September 11, 2011. Lines file past the metal fence of Trinity Church where ribbons are tied for the nearly 3000 that lost their lives. A man plays Amazing Grace on his flute as the people walk by. Family members console each other. A NYPD officer stares into the crowd. A group of young adults sing to those who pass. Behind them, the new One World Trade Center has already breached the lower Manhattan skyline, standing dozens of stories high.

Across the street, protesters demand that the cover-up around 9-11 be truly investigated, and that the Bush administration be held responsible for “engineering” the attacks. “9/11 was an inside job,” reads the shirt of one man, blindfolded by an American flag.
