"Their government said they would never forget… but they did. They fought back." Discovery has released an official trailer for a documentary film called No Responders Left Behind. Every time I hear this story, I think how the hell could the government stop caring about these people - THESE PEOPLE. The ones who volunteered and went down to the destruction of 9/11 and worked so hard to try & save lives and clean up. No Responders Left Behind follows 9/11 social activists Jon Stewart and John Feal as they take on the U.S. government to ensure Health & Compensation for thousands of ailing First Responders who are dying from toxins released at Ground Zero. You've most likely heard about this story in the media already, but they made a doc about the 18-year fight for justice. Featuring first responder and 9/11 social activist, John Feal; FDNY hero, Ray Pfeifer; and 22-time Emmy award-winner & former host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart, as they battle a seriously broken system. An inspirational and empowering film about fighting for what's right.
Here's the official trailer for Rob Lindsay's doc No Responders Left Behind, direct from YouTube:
