I don't know if folks have already heard about this or not, but I believe a sweet little reminder is in order:
***** Democracy Fest '04 *****
A fun, informative event celebrating democracy and the power of our vote!
When & Where?
On Tuesday (TODAY!), October 26, 11am-3:30pm at the HUB & HUB Lawn.
What does Democracy Fest '04 involve?
Democracy Fest will feature discussion, music & arts. Speakers will include
Sherman Alexie, Krist Novoselic, John Carlson, Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, Ron
Sims, and more. Bands Blue Scholars and Left Hand Smoke as well as a team
of breakdancers will also perform.
Speak Your Mind
In addition, on the HUB Lawn you'll find a Speakers' Corner, a soap-box area
for free speech (similar to the one in London's Hyde Park) where citizens
can get up, speak their mind, share opinions. Matt Gano, spoken-word poet,
will kick-off our own Speakers' Corner on the hour, every hour--with UW
professor David Domke and possibly Tim Eyman (among others) planning to take
their turn at Speakers' Corner. Come ask questions. Speak out.
As usual, student groups will be able to assemble with tables and
information in the free speech area on the bricks of the walkway in front of
the HUB and around the edge of the HUB Lawn. Help students access election
information of all kinds.
Democracy Fest '04 brought to you by the Seattle Times' NEXT pages, Rock The
