On Saturday there was a Peace & Freedom Party initiated National
Organizing Committee, partly inspired 2 years ago by the Ralph Nader
campaign. The meeting was at the tail end of the P&F State Central
Committee that weekend.

Attending were some left groups that have been involved with, or
bounce off of, the P&F in the past, including the PSL, SP, SO, CPUSA,
Greens and so on. Most however were P&F stalwarts. P&F as a 'party' is
the largest left group in the State and has a presence in about half
the counties in California beyond their actual registered voted
(55,000). Also the Progressive Dems were in attendance.

The goal of the NOC was to see if it could unite socialist groups
running presidential candidates around one candidate and one slate on
a state by state basis. So far, a lot of talk, little movement.

Nader wasn't even mentioned.
