Dr. William PepperInvestigate Building 7: A Call to Reexamine the Most Important Event of Our Time will run from 9:30am to 9:30pm on March 26 at the University of Hartford’s Millard Auditorium. This historic event will feature the most articulate voices in the growing movement to bring about a new 9/11 investigation. Experts who have studied the events of 9/11 extensively will introduce irrefutable evidence demonstrating the need for a new investigation, and they will be calling upon New York City elected officials and the media to reexamine the most important event of our time, starting with the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7

Dr. William Pepper is an English Barrister and an American Attorney focusing on international human rights. He has worked with and was a friend of Martin Luther King during his last year of life. MLK had read articles on Viet Nam where William Pepper had been a journalist, and asked to meet with him. MLK wept when he saw the photographs (Ramparts, Jan. 196) and asked Pepper to work closely with him as he turned hard against the war.

Nine years after the assassination, family and friends asked Pepper to interrogate James Earl Ray. He did, in 1978, and ten years later after becoming convinced that Ray was an unknowing patsy, agreed to represent him. Two books and an unscripted television trial later, and having been denied by the 6th Circuit and Cert. by the Supreme Court, Ray died and Pepper held a civil trial in Memphis (in which he represented the family of MLK) for 30 days and questioned 70 witnesses, exonerating Ray and setting out how MLK was killed. The jury took 59 minutes to so rule and lay blame on agents of the US, state, and local governments.

A similar scenario followed as Pepper examined the assassination Robert F. Kennedy. Pepper had been the Citizens Chairmen for Robert F. Kennedy’s 1963 New York Senate Campaign. As his investigation of RFK’s assassination progressed, new evidence of Sirhan’s actual innocence emerged that was even stronger than the evidence he had presented in the MLK case. Pepper has now become lead counsel for Sirhan Sirhan.

Pepper also convened the Seminar on International Human Rights at Oxford University for two years and is currently the expert to the Magistrate’s Court in Spain on Universal Jurisdiction with an Opinion before the Court urging the prosecution of members of the Bush Administration for war crimes, crimes against humanity and violations of the Torture Convention.

Pepper has advised a number of the 9/11 victim’s families, has admired the efforts and good work of many 9/11 researchers and has long advocated the necessity of an independent investigation in order for the truth to see the light of day. To this end, Pepper played an active role as legal advisor to the NYC CAN ballot initiative, a 9/11 family member supported campaign for a new New York City investigation of the 9/11 attacks.
