Nader Spoke at Harvard Before Debates
04 Oct 2000
Before the corporate sponsored presidential debates last night, Ralph Nader addressed a cheering crowd at Harvard University. This event proved that political campaigns can be about listening to people, joining with local political movements, and mobilizing people. Nader came to speak at the invitation of the Harvard Living Wage Campaign and Harvard Students Against Sweatshops. He lent his voice to cause of justice over corporate profits in these two campus issues, pointing out that while there are at least 2000 people making poverty level wages at Harvard, two fund managers made a combined total of 16 million dollars in 1998. After his speech activists went down to U Mass to join the debate protests already in progress. To me the message of this event was clear. The most important aspect of Naderís campaign is not that he win, but that it brings attention to the flaws in American democracy, inspires people by offering an alternative vision of politics, connects to local movements, and mobilizes people to work for social justice on any level.
