Please join us with signs (we'll have some too):
Thursday, September 4, noon in San Francisco for a demonstration at MySpace headquarters because they are collaborating with the Commission on Presidential Debates. CPD is a corporate financed two-party non-profit which has complete control of presidential debates. Their criteria prevents 3rd party participation; only Ross Perot has qualified. Candidates must be running in enough states to win the electoral college and have 15% support in the national polls.
A better alternative supported by Nader is the Citizens Debate Commission http://www.citizensdebate.org/
The Demonstration is timed to coincide with the 2nd national Open the Debates rally in Minneapolis, Sept. 4th During the Denver DNC rally there was a similar demonstration at the Beverly Hills office of MySpace.
The Demonstration is supported by Nader, McKinney, and Barr campaigns as well as the Libertarian, and Peace and Freedom parties.

The Denver rally which drew 4,000 people was broadcast live on Freespeech TV on Dish TV and on the web. Nader/Gonzalez plans to air the Super Rally live from Minneapolis - final arrangements are pending (webcast from Denver may have crashed due to high viewership).
Check the website http://www.votenader.org/action/california/ or http://www.votenader.org/events/minneapolis/ for an update about how to watch.
Public viewing parties either in homes or in a public venue, school, restaurant or tavern are great fun. Seattle and San Francisco organized them for the Denver rally The Minneapolis rally starts at 5:30 pm PDT..
