Action programs in Florida's public universities and
in state contracts. The rally was the largest in
state history and launched a drive to increase voter
participation in the 2000 election.
The effort succeeded, but Gov. Bush and his allies
were not done. On November 7, 2000, thousands of
Florida voters were denied their right to cast a

training of election workers, inaccurate purges of

6pm-7:30pm., Nashville, Tennessee
Tennessee Citizen Action is pleased
to bring Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. of Illinois to
in Nashville! Congressman Jackson is very
quickly becoming one of the leading progressive voices
in the country and he will share his vision and his
passion with us in Tennessee.
Where: Jefferson Street Missionary Baptist Church;
2708 Jefferson St. in Nashville When:
Sunday, January 13th, 2002, 6pm-7:30pm.
What: Congressman Jackson will be discussing his new
book A MORE PERFECT UNION: Advancing New American
Rights at a public forum. The forum will be
followed by a brief book-signing.
Who: Tennessee Citizen Action, The Urban League of
Middle Tennessee, Jefferson Street Missionary Baptist
Church and others are pleased to welcome Congressman
Jackson to town.
For more information or to volunteer to help out,
please call (615) 244-2494.
These groups are collaborating to bring Congressman
Jackson to Nashville with the goal of uniting
Tennesseans behind an economic and political agenda
that creates a �more perfect union� in Tennessee.
With crucial issues such as unemployment, voting
reform, the state budget, and access to healthcare
facing Tennesseans and Tennessee�s lawmakers, this
is the perfect time to
hear from a visionary, national leader such as
In his new book, Congressman Jackson
argues that race � more than any other element �
has shaped America�s institutions, its economics,
politics, laws, social structures and political
attitudes. He considers race to be the focal
point of American history, but speaks in the book
through the language of the economy because �the
economy is the hearing aid through which
Americans hear all political dialogue.�
In A More Perfect Union, the Congressman provides
ample documentation and insightful analysis of the
inextricable link between race and economics.
Most importantly, Jackson proposes a radical economic
strategy and program of new human rights that will
build a �more perfect union� for all Americans and
put every American in a better position to come to

NORTH BRIDGE ALLIANCE FOR DEMOCRACY presents
RESCUING DEMOCRACY: A PEOPLE'S CALL TO ACTION!
CONCEPT for a Regional Pro-Democracy Conference
A new pro-democracy movement is growing in America
spurred on by the widespread outrage at the abuses of
democracy that occurred before, during and since the
last presidential election.
In response and support, the North Bridge chapter of
the Alliance for Democracy is planning a New England
regional conference in Boston. We are inviting a
broad range of organizations and constituencies to
come together to learn and plan and work for electoral
reform and a strong
Important goals of the conference are:
* to engage the growing number of concerned citizens
looking for ways to take action against the forces
attacking our democracy and threatening civil
liberties and social justice
* to involve a broad range of organizations to advance
a coordinated approach toward
electoral reform and genuine democracy.
Using election 2000 and the staggering events of
September 11, 2001 as reference points, we will
examine the larger social and global threats to
democracy and provide a review of actions, both in
process and planned, to lead us toward genuine
Starting with the illegalities of the 2000 election
and its disenfranchisement of millions of Americans,
speakers will cover the topics described below
("*" indicates that speaker has confirmed).
Most featured speakers' presentations and analysis of
a theme will be followed by a short introduction to
local or national actions, planned or in process,
which strive to remedy problems in that area.
Then over a box lunch attendees may gather to receive
more detail about such actions and learn how to
participate if they wish.

11, Tues., Wash. DC, Vincent Bugliosi Conference and
proudly invites people in the Washington, DC area to
meet Vince Bugliosi, author of The Betrayal of
America: How the Supreme Court Undermined the
Constitution and Chose Our President, on Tuesday,
September 11th from 7 to 9 pm.
This is Bugliosi's FIRST appearance in Washington
since he published his history-making book. Bugliosi
will speak and light refreshments will be served.
Copies of the book will be available for $10 for the
first 50 guests and will be signed by the author.
The event will be held in a private home at 2000
South Arlington Ridge Road, Arlington VA. For
directions and to secure a place at this event by
making your contribution in advance please visit http://democrats.com/display.cfm?id=242
Bugliosi is a former prosecutor who
dares speak the truth about the U.S. Supreme Court's
actions in Bush v. Gore: ". . . the Court
committed the unpardonable sin of being a knowing
surrogate for the Republican Party instead of being
an impartial arbiter of the law.... [The Court
searched] mightily for a way, any way at all, to aid
their choice for president, Bush, in the suppression
of the truth, finally settling, in their judicial
coup d'Etat, on the untenable argument that there
was a violation of the Fourteenth Amendment's equal
protection clause..." Come help show your
support for Bugliosi and the truth he is struggling
to ensure gets told.

then please join us in opposing these hate groups on
the grassy area in front of the St Paul Capitol. This

From June 29 to July 1st, 2001, the Center for
Constitutional Rights and a coalition of civil
rights/human rights organizations, including Voter
March, are sponsoring a National
Pro-Democracy Convention at the Convention Center in Philadelphia. The Convention is
being convened in response to the disenfranchisement
of thousands, if not millions of voters in the
recent Presidential election.
With the Voter's Bill of Rights as a primary focus,
the National Pro-Democracy Convention will be a
vehicle to gather up and galvanize the disparate and
disaffected constituencies and movements outraged by
the flawed election to build a permanent force for

George W. Bush's energy policies and lack of emphasis on efficiency, conservation and alternative

CITY FTAA APRIL 19 TO 21
FROM BOB KUNST, ORAL MAJORITY
Yes, I did get gassed, and
yes, we did make an impact and here is what
happened. Meantime, I managed to get to Quebec on
Thurs., and got to the main fence with my banner:
"Bush Stole The Election" CBC T. V. was
doing commentary and picked up on the banner both in video
with the commentator in French. It would be the beginning
of a great deal of media and also the scoop on what really
happened in Quebec.
Quebec City is beautiful and historic and surrounded by a
wire fence and security costing $50 millions in Canadian,
but with a massive message of:
1. keeping out the people, from this cabal of dishonesty
2. rubbing in the face of the freedom loving people of
Canada that this fence is the image instead, of oppression
and symbol, into this globalization, a tyranny of
corporate control, that is uncontrolled and threatening
the very survival of the planet via the profiteering to destroy
anything and everything in its path toward this mania.
Of course this "Wall of Shame" had to come down.
At Lavall University, on the first evening I would do
Canada's Public Radio, and in all of the media, the
approach is: "Gore Won, Bush Stole The
Election", is illegitimate, and has 'isolated' the
U.S. from the rest of the world, and Oral Majority is here
to isolate Bush from the rest of the world
instead, and that he does not represent the U.S.
While others had a hard time even getting into Canada at
the borders, including labor people from the U.S., as
reported in the Boston Globe on 4/19/01, I had no problem
and of course at the main gate, Rene Levec St., I
immediately made friends with the police as I always do.
So on Friday, by Noon, I was already set up with table,
banner, two more signs: "Stop Bush" and
"Wake Up America-Bush Stole The Election" and a
table filled with "No More Bushit" buttons and
stickers, "Buck Fush" buttons and lots of flyers
on who we are and our web site.
Reaction was just terrific, in both having most of the
street to myself, so the view from a distance was most
obvious and then as it got crowded still standing out like
a sore thumb.
Media and people came quickly to photograph, do
interviews, donate for the merchandize and conversation in
I also mention that the Canadian Prime Minister had only a
couple of weeks ago stated that Bushit was
"Naive" and "Ignorant", but this
comment of a head of state against a U.S. 'leader', was
also ignored by the media, to protect Bushit's image and
'coup' and in addition Fox was one of the worst and as we
spoke Oral Majority and others in Tampa were demonstrating
against Fox this very minute. I was adding
"Illegitimate" to "Naive" and
"Your Silence Won't Protect You" was a bumper
sticker I saw on a car, also carrying a gay decal.
Then an extraordinary group with black crosses over their
mouths, in very slow motion going towards the fence.
This 13, drawing a great number of people and cameras and
right in front of me.
A U.S. flag in now in the street and one upside down.
Then a huge group of 'flower' people called the
"Pagan Cluster", are doing a huge circle right
in front of me, only to be replaced nearly 3 P.M. with a
huge group of protesters now coming from the University to
the fence and 'it begins'.
Mind you, it will take only 5 minutes for 10 sections of
this fence to come down.
So with all the yelling and cheers and then a block away
the tear gas is starting and I say it's too crowded and
dangerous and the need to pack up and move out of here. I
get packed but then the gas started coming directly
My car is parked below this level of the street and by the
time I get my stuff down to the street a gas canister goes
off right near my car but the wind is blowing right to me.
I couldn't breathe. Everyone around there was in
tears and choking.
It was amazing!
I load the car, and there are folks lying on the street by
the car, and in pain for the gas as well as myself.
This guy is pouring water into our eyes to wash it out and
I'm offering Club Soda for the lungs.
Then I get in the car and get out of the thousands now in
the streets, and chanting that this is the 'face of
democracy' and 'solidarity go, go'.
So I go for dinner and then meet with one of the folks
from Halifax protesting and we talk, and decide to go for
a beer in the old city and by midnight the tear gas is
still flowing by cloud fulls all over the place, and this
Friday is over for me, watching all the kids, and folks,
who are innocent, all suffering such pain.
It's finally a gorgeous day, when two days earlier it was
20 degrees. Now it's labors turn and I set up my booth and
do a bang-up job with media and folks loving the stuff and
mucho conversations as 30,000 are mobilizing here for
their march to plea for sanity at this Summit.
Bushit meanwhile told CBC the night before he would leave
the Summit if there was another incident. And now at
9 AM he is addressing the Summit on 'trade' being the
vehicle for 'liberty' and 'democracy', (Can you believe
it?), while the Canadian Prime Minister says that
'democracy' must also be
'legitimate' and 'relevant', which I see as another attack
upon Bushit's credibility.
As the parade moves on, there are many powerful messages
and a very decidedly anti-Bushit attitude thankfully I was
both providing and supporting.
Yesterday someone had chalked in front of my table:
"Free America-Trade Bush" and today folks had
signs that "Bush Sucks", besides what I was
doing and 600+ were carrying our messages to the rest of
the people, besides again
speaking to numerous media.
Imagine the massiveness of it all in just a few hours of
By the time I'm packed up now, my other half is calling
from Miami and telling that on T.V. live, is this group
now getting 'gassed' and doused by water cannon (which
didn't work the day before) and for no provocation.
Meanwhile, the anarchists were trying to divert the parade
to come with them but labor kept them separate.
I walked a bit in the parade, and there were now 100 with
bar code masks on their faces again walking in street
theatre, among so many like them and Greenpeaces' 4 story
condom, etc. and these folks didn't deserve getting
gassed, which four blocks into for me, the whole place was
I would speak with 3 woman and we could see on top of the
hill clouds of gas, and they told me that the building
covered with it was a nun's nursing home and hospital. I
Ten blocks away, my eyes were tearing and I was coughing.
This attack and retreat scenario would go on for all
afternoon and into the late hours and by then I had
already left, but was listening to the reports on 940
every fifteen minutes, and 34 police had been hurt as well
as 50 protesters and 150 arrests while the 'riot squads'
from around the country
were being sent in.
Three media trucks had been vandalized. A bunch of CIBC
bank windows had been broken. The peaceful
protesters were screaming at these anarchists that none of
this was necessary and they were ruining the message the
wanted to present.
Meanwhile, 3000 marched in solidarity in Vancouver; 500 in
Winnepeg; 1000 in Halifax; 50 in Windsor; and tunnel from
Detroit blocked for 20 minutes by 40 on U.S. side and
another protest at border crossing in Vt.
By 7 P.M. portions of the roadway were being broken up and
thrown at the police, says this reporter on 940 and she is
choking on the air from all the gas being thrown, while
the fence by the cemetery has been taken down and now 100
police and reinforcements are coming.
3 police helicopters at all times filming this 'Big
Brother' approach to a people demanding to be heard, the
Summit claimed they had, but this show of force from its
inception and then denial, has only made this deception
one of the
issues being protested and surely no trust exists on these
levels and why the conflict.
I must say that I did also meet other Americans, who came
to be a part of this and also that while the Canadians
were decidedly anti-US corps. they were totally with us
and I had nothing but praise from them for even being
Since the last Summit, the Nazi/Big Brother/ exclusion/ right
-wing /illegitimacy/issues are as large as ever, for those
not in denial.
Where is our passion on this betrayal by GOP/Bushit and
arsenic and untreated sewage in our water among the catastrophes?
18 - GRANNY
D SHOWS UP AT VOTER MARCH MEETING
the New York City Voter March meeting on April 18,
made a surprise visit. Granny D was in
New York City that day as she had a televised interview
with the Today Show on her great efforts towards
campaign finance reform.
April 6th, 2001
Juliet Stewart (Voter March Fund Raising Chair)
Founder of Friends of Bill and CitizensAgainstBush.org
(Cleveland) It was cold that day Monday, April 16th, in
Cleveland, as we arrived after 4 hours on the road from
Cincinnati. I telephoned Greg to let him know that we had
arrived. My daughters were on Spring Break, and I wanted
them to meet someone that forever would leave an
impression on their young minds. Greg Palast was to speak
at the Cleveland Council on World Affairs, his topic was
Globalization at the Cleveland Playhouse on Tuesday
evening April, 17th. Since we both felt that Tuesday would
not be a good time for us to meet, he invited me to come
up on Monday where we could spend more time together
speaking about various topics and perhaps hold an
arrived at the local hangout on Case Western Reserve
University around 7:45 PM with Professor Joe White by his
side. As he was walking down the steps to this rather 60's
type location called "The Spot", he called out
to me, "Juliet." He was exactly how I imagined
him to be. His fedora hat and long coat. and a carry on
type briefcase which held all the proof he had to expose
the fraud in Florida. I knew something was about to
explode in my life and this meeting was just the
prerequisite of what will come later. It was an informal
gathering of a handful of students, an older couple,
Professor White, myself, my 2 daughters and Gregory
Palast. We took some pictures and then we decided how we
would tape this lecture.
wanted to begin the lecture and decided we would do the
interview later. He spoke about the 2000 Presidential
stolen election. His research was extensive and told about
his meeting with Clay Roberts in Florida. And how just the
mention of Palast in Florida automatically shuts the doors
in offices controlled by the Bush Administration there. He
spoke about how Catherine Harris' office ordered the
elimination of 8000 black, poor whites and Hispanic
voters, who were not felons. He spoke about the marketing
company Database Technologies, DBT/ChoicePoint, who
gathered up names and put them on a blacklist. Later to be
used to prevent people from poor communities from voting.
All of this done in the name of Bush, both Jeb and George.
In other words, this is nothing more than racial profiling
to gather information about the profiles of black voters
and minority groups. He spoke about globalization, Thomas
Friedman and the New World Order extensively. I had
learned that the insurance companies are so tied in the
World Bank. How the World Banks controlled not only the
banks, but our health care systems. When he spoke about
how globalization ties in with this New World Order, I
became almost frightened but I knew that the message was
clear, we must not let the World Banks control our entire
lives. This is evident everyday since our meeting. I now
do not dismiss any news article on globalization.
spoke about men like Bob Parry of the
"Consortium," and how his life was almost ruined
after he wrote about Iran Contra. I asked him if he
thought Cspan was controlled by the Moon family as Parry
suggest. He said that if Parry suggested it there must be
some truth in it. He has a high respect for this man. He
shared with us, how this "trash can" journalism
is where an investigative reporter is put out to pasture
once they expose the truth. He is proud of the people he
has met such men like, Walter Cronkite and is not
surprised that Big PBS stations in larger cities will not
show his new series "The Calling." Some of which
was taped in Cleveland earlier in the day before we
anguish I feel is the way he has been treated by such
reporters as Michael Isikoff, who seems to foam at the
mouth just by the mention of Bill Clinton. I think Greg's
"Gonzo Journalism method" of reporting is a
breath of fresh air. He even amused and kept the attention
of an 11 and 13 year old, especially when he said, if you
want to be a journalist, "Don't study
journalism." He believes that if you want to go to
Bolivia and protest, you should do everything possible to
make it happen. If you have a student loan, don't spend
the rest of your life trying to pay this off. He believes
you should just change your name and get on with your life
and don't get caught in the rut race of daily living. Do
something you love, something that doesn't bog you down.
Just do what you want to do in life and don't study silly
courses in college that will just be a waste of time. You
have to live your life to the fullest.
told me in my interview that my daughter Alex helped to
tape, that he was a Democrat. He declined when I asked him
who he voted for in the 2000 stolen election. He
was disappointed in Al Gore when he did not challenge the
US SUPREME Court's decision. He felt there was some kind
of loop hole in that decision. He was adamant that Gore
should have done more to question this. His stance on Joe
Lieberman is as follows. He doesn't think that Lieberman
was the best Vice Presidential candidate and will never
forget his proposal of Tort Reform.
answered questions that my members had wanted answered.
One in particular was should we trust the Media. He said
no we should not and mentioned names that are so familiar
in our daily lives that have become nothing but a mouth
piece for George W. Bush. He felt that it was awful that
journalist like himself, and others have to write for
trash can journals like "The Nation." He doesn't
mean this in the wrong way, he just means how many people
will pick up and read this journal for real news. It has
become a journal of truth seekers but no one is reading. I
told him that one day someone will find some good trash on
Bush, and then they will want him to tell them all he
knows about the Bush Cartel. And his comment made me feel
that perhaps something is already in the works. I told him
I would cast Richard Gere to play Greg Palast. I must
mention that he loves his brown fedora hat, he even
mentions being bald but seems very proud that he is
different. He said that he would never wear a rug on his
head as most do who work for the mainstream Media.
Lenny Bruce is what comedy is to the latter day comedians,
then Greg Palast is investigative journalism at it's best.
In other words, no one has exposed more truth about the
Bush Cartel and has lived to tell the story. Greg does
live in exile in London with his family. He uncovered the
truth about the Bush family and Barrick Gold Mining. They
are suing The Observer and Guardian over his reporting
that a company they bought in Tanzania buried at least 50
miners alive to clear their gold mining concession. He
said and I quote, " The most wonderful thing about
America is the lawsuits." I must add that Professor
Joe White was a college friend of Greg during their
younger days. He spoke to Joe's students on a one to one
basis. Answering all questions and standing the entire
time. He spoke for almost 3 hours, and the pizza and
popcorn seemed to be of no one's concern, since we were
eating the words of Palast. Hunger and thirst were the
last thing on our mind.
have pictures and I have the interview. He also
autographed some articles that he had written with a color
picture of himself sitting on a beach in New York's Long
Island Sound. I felt like we had known each other for
years and we were just reacquainted to each other
once again. A lesson is the study of Greg Palast is one
that I know myself and 2 young girls from Cincinnati will
never forget. He felt that his article he had written
"Silence of the Lambs" helped to make him a
focus on the left circuit of the internet, but now the
silence has turned into "The Slaughter of the
Lambs". And I might add that the inscription on his
pictures to me were very powerful words. He is the
inspiration that made this woman travel over 4 hours by
car to meet and hear Palast. I now put Mr. Palast in the
top 5 list of people that I have been proud to meet. Oh by
the way, he thinks that Phil Berg's idea to file the
lawsuit is a good idea. Any exposure we get to open up the
election fraud story furthers our attempts to expose the
Bush Cartel in this country.
he loves VoterMarch on May 19th in DC, but he would
have to decline for now and the invitation to speak, since
he may be flying into the U.S. on that day from London. I
even gave him a VoterMarch flyers to pass around as well
as the NY POST article on our Protest at Fox News in NY on
April 6th. Greg will be spending his summer there at his
summer home in New York. So please, next time you get a
chance to meet or hear Mr. Palast please do so. Don't
miss this one, and you don't need any prerequisites. You
just need to take Greg Palast 101, and that is all you
need to further your life in activism and investigative

BUSH PROTEST REPORT FROM TALLAHASSEE - APRIL 9
I attended the
Florida State Employees Protest/Unions protest
against Jeb Bush in Tallahassee Florida, on April 9,
2001. Our "Rally in Tally"! No
one could deter the hundreds of Floridians who came
to protest the "other" Bush. The one
who helped STEAL the presidential election from
Gore. And now Jeb is trying to take jobs away
from dedicated, hardworking State employees.
By car and by bus, the Florida State employees came.
I stopped counting the number of busses and car
caravans. There were so many! From
Orlando, Tampa, Miami, and all points in between.
Hundreds dressed in green T-shirts saying
"State Workers Do It Better......and For
Less"! There were State Employees, Union
members, Florida Democrat leaders, Representatives
of Civil Rights and Woman Organizations, etc., etc.
AFSCME President Gerald McEntee and AFL-CIO
President John Sweeney gave compelling speeches in
front of the Tallahassee Capitol steps.
McEntee emphasized that the Bush brothers had
"declared war on working families in Florida
and across America". Various State
Democrat Representatives also spoke. Multiple
news media were in attendance. The protest was
peaceful and without incident. Floridians of
every color, nationality, and creed were in
attendance. The crowd was "fired-up" to
say the least! From age 22 to 62!! We clapped,
chanted, sang, and shouted our support for what we
felt was right and just.

DC, JAN 20 -- On the date of the Presidential
Inauguration, we held the Inaugural Day Voter March
at Dupont Circle and the Ellipse in Washington, DC
to protest election fraud and the disenfranchisement
of voters that occurred in election 2000 and the
U.S. Supreme Court's partisan intervention with the
rights of voters. Over ten thousand individuals from
