RALPH NADER TO HOLD RALLY AND PRESS CONFERENCE, AT THE SANTA CRUZ CIVIC AUDITORIUM

On Monday, September 29th at 7:30 pm, Independent Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader will be speaking at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, 307 Church St
Santa Cruz, CA 95060

The theme of the Santa Cruz rally, "Open the Debates," reflects the Nader/Gonzalez Campaign's call for inclusive, democratic Presidential debates. Right now,

they are limited to the candidates from the two corporate parties. The debates are controlled by the so-called Commission on Presidential Debates, a private

corporation which was created by the Democratic and Republican Parties in 1987, which Walter Cronkite called an "unconscionable fraud" because the CPD format

"defies meaningful discourse."
In addition, the candidates will speak about the growing, multifarious crisis California residents confront, starting with a tanking economy, increasing

environmental pollution, offshore drilling and a health care system broken beyond repair.

WHO: Ralph Nader and Matt Gonzalez

WHAT: Press Conference and Rally

WHEN: Monday, September 29th, 7:30 p.m. Press Conference; 7 p.m

WHERE: Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, 307 Church St Santa Cruz, CA 95060

About Ralph Nader
Attorney, author, and consumer advocate Ralph Nader has been named by Time Magazine one of the "100 Most Influential Americans in the 20th Century." For more

than four decades he has exposed problems and organized millions of citizens into more than 100 public interest groups advocating solutions. He led the

movement to establish the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety

Commission, and was instrumental in enacting the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and countless

other pieces of important consumer legislation. Because of Ralph Nader we drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and

work in safer environments. Nader graduated from Princeton University and received an LL.B from Harvard Law School.
