Fight for Democracy Rally

Public Symposium

Fight for Democracy Rally

Saturday, December 4, 2004 1:00 p.m. Ohio Statehouse

Featured Speakers:

Journalists Greg Palast & Lynn Landes; Senator Teresa Fedor
The Citizens' Alliance for Secure Elections (CASE) has organized a rally to demand that every vote be counted accurately from the Nov 2nd election. We demand a full recount of Ohio's votes and a thorough investigation of all reported irregularities and discrepancies and charges of voter disenfranchisement throughout the state. The right to vote is a civil right and in a democracy no abridgment of that right can be tolerated.

Public Symposium

Following the Rally

"Stand Up and Be Counted; A CASE for Democracy"

Guest Speakers:

Reverend Jesse Jackson
Journalist Greg Palast

Dec. 4, 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Africentric Middle School, 300 E. Livingston Ave., Columbus, OH.

Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and CASEOhio are sponsoring an evening with Reverend Jesse Jackson and journalist Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
The press is invited to a private reception with the speakers, Rev. Jackson and Columbus Schools Superintendent in the South wing of the cafeteria at 5:20.
This will be an informal meet-and-greet and a chance to ask a few questions, not a formal press conference.


Thousands of Ohio citizens had difficulty voting on November 2nd.
Despite thousands of complaints, a planned recount, statewide public hearings, several lawsuits, a Congressional investigation and the outcry of voters rights groups, this situation remains unresolved.

America's election system is badly flawed. So flawed, that a Cal Tech/MIT
study of the 2000 Election,,,
discovered that as many as one in 18 citizens
was disenfranchised due to procedural and/or technological anomalies.
The 2004 election was no different! All citizens must have equal access to voting and the electoral process in order to ensure our democracy.
