    >Hi everyone.
    >I'm writing to tell you about an event the ISO is sponsoring THIS Saturday
    >(Aug. 5) at 4 PM at the Women's Building in San Francisco. The event is
    >called "Chicago 1968 - Los Angeles 2000", and will feature veteran activists

    >important lessons (both strengths & weaknesses) of past struggles, and

    >corporate greed, and all the rotten aspects of a system set up to serve the
    >interests of a tiny group at the top at the expense of the rest of us.

    >a Democrat fed up with the policies of Clinton/Gore, please bring your ideas
    >and experience, and participate in this very important discussion.
