A group of New York construction workers have pledged not to take part in the building of the proposed mosque near New York City's Ground Zero.
The supporters of the "9/11 Hardhat Pledge" are planning to attend a rally protesting the construction of the $100 million Islamic center on Sunday, August 22.
The rally, which is being sponsored by The Coalition to Honor Ground Zero, will also include is the families members of the firefighters and other victims who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
"The Coalition to Honor Ground Zero, the 9/11 Families and first responders are heartened by the support of the many patriots from around America who will be joining the Coalition on Sunday to seek the truth about this mosque, its Imam, and his financial supporters," said Tim Brown, a firefighter who was at the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11.
According to The Post Chronicle, Brown lost 93 friends that day.
"Thousands of people are signing up from all over the country," Andy Sullivan, a construction worker from Brooklyn, told The New York Daily News. "People who sell glass, steel, lumber, insurance. They are all refusing to do work if they build there."
"Hopefully, this will be a tool to get them to move it," he said. "I got a problem with this ostentatious building looming over Ground Zero."
