Peter Camejo's Memorial -- Sunday, November 23, 2:00pm, Berkeley
by repost
Friday Nov 14th, 2008 2:39 PM
Peter Camejo helped found the California Green Party in 1991 and ran three times for governor of California. He also ran as independent Ralph Nader's vice presidential running mate in the 2004 presidential election in which President Bush won a second term. In 1976 he ran for president as the Socialist Workers Party candidate. Mr. Camejo described himself as a watermelon - red on the inside, green on the outside.

Peter Camejo Memorial

Peter’s Memorial will be:

Sunday, November 23, 2:00 PM
The International House in Berkeley, CA

International House (I-House) is at the top of the UC Berkeley campus, 2299 Piedmont Avenue, Berkeley, California, 94720-2320.

Ralph Nader will be speaking at the Memorial. Also other friends of Peter from different aspects of his life. Details to follow.

Socializing

A number of people have asked us about the possibilities of socializing after the memorial. We have to be out of I-House by 5 PM. We are looking into finding a place where people who wanted to could gather afterwards.

We are still asking for photos of Peter — we haven’t received any yet!

As part of the memorial meeting we are soliciting two things:

1) Photographs of Peter and

2) Hard-copy reminiscences (brief is fine!)

to be put in a memory book for the family, which will also be available at the memorial and eventually perhaps be put online. Physical photographs will be scanned and returned.

Both the photographs and the reminiscences should be sent to
Peter’s brother Dan Ratner at –

Dan Ratner
1350 Broadstone Pkwy
Apt 4413
Folsom, CA 95630

If you’d be willing to have these photos appear on the blog, please also send them to –

achis [at] igc.org

Please visit the blog where we have links to interviews with Peter and the picture of the Abdul Ghaffar Khan Peace Award he just won.

The blog also has all the previous messages we sent out, as well as many comments from friends of Peter.
