September 11th Hero and Survivor                    William Rodriguez to Speak in Los Angeles

The last man out of the World Trade Center alive will share his harrowing story of courage, strength and hope on Friday August 17th at Immanuel Presbyterian Church    in Los Angeles.  Actor Ed Asner is scheduled to attend as well.

Declared a hero for saving numerous lives at Ground Zero, William Rodriguez was the janitor on duty the morning of 9/11 who heard and felt explosions rock the basement sub-levels       of the north tower just seconds before the jetliner struck the top floors.  His testimony,      which was omitted from the 9/11 Commission, destroys the Government's official story because it means explosives were placed inside the buildings. One third of all eyewitnesses earwitnesses whose calls were recorded and transcribed and released under a Freedom of Information Act demand also claim they heard multiple explosions before the buildings collapsed.
At great risk to his own life, William re-entered the Towers three times after the first,  North Tower impact and is believed to be the last person to exit the North Tower alive, surviving the building's collapse by diving beneath a fire truck. After receiving medical attention at the site for his injuries, he then spent the rest of the day a volunteer in the rescue efforts, and at dawn the following morning, was back continuing his heroic efforts.
In addition to being a spokesperson for the New York City first responders (leading the cause for compensation issues and rights), William is also active in the movement for immigrant rights. When Latino survivors and relatives of victims of the attacks were not receiving adequate attention from support groups or relief programs, he helped form a group just for them. He was also a major force behind the campaign to encourage non-documented survivors and relatives of victims to come forward for help without fear of deportation.          The group raised funds for scholarships for children of immigrants killed or maimed in            the attacks.
Just back in the U.S . from his World Tour, you can hear William tell his story live Friday,    August 17, 2007 at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church located at 3300 Wilshire Blvd.              in Los Angeles. The program begins at 7 p.m. with a donation request of $10.
