Let's work at providing a forum for Nader etc
06 Oct 2000

Ralph Nader and the other "third party" candidates need to
get their ideas out in a separate forum from the exclusive Republicratic (CPD) debates. We should send the third party staffs a barrage of e-mails suggesting that we grassroots activists will work with them, if they will work with each other. The simple goal: a media event of similar stature for the excluded candidates.

Write to NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, radio stations, FAIR (fair (at) fair.org), activist organizations, media watchdogs....

Build a grassroots uprising. Hold demonstrations/protests/street festivals. Get active! And find others to join in.

It's too late to change the CPD. They will not be able to do what they did this year ever again. Many are working now to insure that they cannot. Let them have their faux "debates". Lets create an event of our own, in which Nader and others can have a mass audience voice.

Perhaps radio is easier to work with than television!? Maybe we should hit the radio industry with a barrage of calls, letters, e-mails, office visits....

Hell, if you are too busy to write an e-mail of your own, copy this and send it to your friends. Ask them to add their thoughts and pass it on.
