New York City's Metropolitan Transit Authority on Monday dropped its restrictions on the free speech of the human rights organization American Freedom Defense Initiative (FDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA). MTA officials reversed an earlier decision not to allow FDI bus ads that pointed out the link between the September 11, 2001 jihad terror attacks and the proposed Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero. FDI Executive Director Pamela Geller announced: "The MTA has recognized the justice of our position in our lawsuit, and has agreed to run our ad as originally submitted. This is a great victory for freedom of speech, and we are grateful to our attorneys David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise for mounting such an effective defense against politically correct censorship." Responding to charges that the ad is offensive, Geller said: "What's more insulting and offensive -- that image of truth, or a 15 story mega-mosque looking down on the sacred ground of Ground Zero?" The MTA reversal came after FDI filed a lawsuit on Friday, August 6, against the city of New York for infringement of the freedom of speech, after the MTA refused to run FDI's "Preservation of Ground Zero" bus campaign. The MTA claimed that it refused the campaign because it contained a "9/11 image," specifically "a plane," and associated the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque slated to be built at Ground Zero with the September 11, 2001 jihad terror attacks -- an association that the mosque ...

On Wednesday, March 3rd 2010, the MTA held a public hearing to get input from New York City residents about the proposed cuts to service. They have said they may eliminate free student and handicapped people's rides. The public came to express anger and frustration, as well as propose alternative solutions to the budget crisis. The MTA chose not to listen and sent in police to silence critical voices. Arrests were made. Things are heating up. Today, March 4th, everyone will be in the streets. Make your voice heard!
