On Saturday, October 11th at 7:30 pm, Independent Presidential Candidate Ralph 
Nader will be speaking at North Dakota State University- Century Theater,

The theme of the North Dakota 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.

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.
