Two events aimed at challenging the certification of
the 2004 Presidential election. House Democrats are
planning to challenge Ohio's electoral votes, and as in
2001, a single United States Senator is needed to make
the challenge official. Call on your Senators to join the fight
to ensure that we do indeed have the right to vote in this
great (ha!) democracy.

2) Recount 2004 presents:
From Selma to Montgomery,
to Miami, FL and Miami County, OH
A Movie Night
About the Voting Rights Struggle
in the New Millennium.
Tuesday, January 4th, 7-10pm
38 Cameron Ave, Cambridge
[Note: there are two 38 Cameron Ave
addresses since they start over in Somerville...
be sure you're on the Cambridge side, which
is closer to Mass Ave]
Attempting to put the 2004 Presidential election
in its proper context, we examine voting rights
struggles of the Civil Rights Era, the theft of the
2000 Presidential election in Florida, digitization
of voting and vote-counting, and voting rights
violations and disenfranchisement in Ohio in 2004.
This movie night will support the efforts of the
Coalition Against Election Fraud (CAEF) locally,
and other groups nationally, working to challenge
the certification of the vote on January 6th in the
Joint Session of Congress. The media whitewash
on these vital issues forces us to find other means
of communication to expose the systematic, racist,
and illegal violations of our fundamental right to vote.
Discussions and action steps will follow the viewings.
