Here is most of the political text from the handbill:
What does capitalism mean today? It means a colonial
war of occupation in Iraq which has turned into a
bloody quagmire. It means war at home against working
people, immigrants, women and people of color.
Resistance, however, is growing. In Venezuela,
ordinary people defied they oligarchy and their
backers in Washington by defeating the recall of
populist President Hugo Chavez. Here at home, a mass
anti-war movement is reaching a new height in the
protests at the RNC.
Come discuss the way forward--why we should support
Ralph Nader's anti-war, anti-corporate candidacy; how
we can build a political alternative to the rotten
two-party system and a movement that can get rid of
capitalism's endliss wars, poverty and environmental
destruction once and for all.
