DOLLAR DEMOCRACY: WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR SOME; HOW TO RECLAIM THE AMERICAN DREAM FOR ALL
With author Peter Matthews, radio host, journalist, Professor of Political Science Cypress College

Hear about Peter Matthews new book that tackles the pernicious and devastating effects of wealthy individuals’ and corporate money in American politics. Political speech now has a price tag on it! A total of $6.3 billion was raised and spent by presidential and congressional candidates in the 2012 election. Without huge amounts of money... a political candidate cannot effectively get her/his message out.

WE MUST CHANGE THIS.

How did we get to the crisis that we face today? Answers to this questions and real, concrete solutions will be presented.

Time will be allotted for Q&A, discussion and announcements.
Donations to Occupy Forum to cover costs are encouraged; no one turned away!
