Hi, I was wondering if you could help get the word out about this important community event. Feel free to pass it along to any email lists or event calendars you know of. Thanks for your help!!! Austin Case 804-852-6116 RALPH NADER TO HOLD FORUM ON OPENING THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES, AT NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY On Saturday, October 11th at 7:30 pm, Independent Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader will be speaking at North Dakota State University- Century Theater, The theme of the North Dakota Rally, "Open the Debates," reflects the Nader/Gonzalez Campaign's call for inclusive, democratic Presidential debates. Right now, they are limited to the candidates from the two corporate parties. The debates are controlled by the so-called Commission on Presidential Debates, a private corporation which was created by the Democratic and Republican Parties in 1987, which Walter Cronkite called an "unconscionable fraud" because the CPD format "defies meaningful discourse." In addition, the candidates will speak about the growing, multifarious crisis California residents confront, starting with a tanking economy, increasing environmental pollution, offshore drilling and a health care system broken beyond repair.

For more than four decades he has exposed problems and organized millions of citizens into more than 100 public interest groups advocating solutions. He led the movement to establish the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and was instrumental in enacting the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and countless other pieces of important consumer legislation. Because of Ralph Nader we drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments. Nader graduated from Princeton University and received an LL.B from Harvard Law School.
