> MORE THAN 100 PROMINENT LEADERS ANNOUNCE SUPPORT OF NADER/LADUKE, CALL FOR
> THEIR INCLUSION IN DEBATES
>
> Washington, D.C., Sept. 25 =96 The Nader 2000 Campaign today announced a
> Citizens Committee of more than 100 prominent people, including
> celebrities with social justice backgrounds, union leaders, environmental
> activists and leading academics who are publicly supporting Green Party
> presidential candidate Ralph Nader and vice presidential candidate Winona
> LaDuke. They are also calling for the inclusion of Nader and LaDuke in the
> upcoming debates.
>
> The list of supporters was released in press conferences held today in
> Washington, D.C., New York and Seattle, during which Oscar-winner Susan
> Sarandon, Trans Africa founder Randall Robinson, feminist author Meredith
> Tax and several other members of the Nader 2000 Citizens Committee
> explained why they are supporting Nader and LaDuke.
>
> The support of more than 100 prominent leaders in their respective fields
> is more evidence of the broad based appeal of our campaign and the momentum
> that is building up across the country,=94 Nader said.
>
> Nader's three-day, six-city Non-Voter Tour with Michael Moore and Phil
> Donahue last week was a big success, attracting huge crowds at every stop.
> Friday night, more than 12,000 people paid $7 apiece to hear Nader speak at
> a super rally in Minneapolis, Minn., which was the largest paid political
> rally for any candidate in this  election year. On Saturday, more than
> 10,000 supporters turned out to a paid rally in Seattle.

> Similar super rallies are planned for Boston on Oct. 1 and Chicago on Oct.
> 10.
>
> "Today, prominent citizens echoed the support of tens of thousands of
> voters who are turning up at our campaign events across the country.
> Horse-race polls don't accurately reflect third-party support. The
> mainstream media'ss nearly exclusive focus on the two-party duopoly is
> missing the real story that millions of voters, including those who voted
> for Sen. John McCain and Bill Bradley, will no longer tolerate cash-
> register-politics as usual and will be heading to the polls this
> November to vote their conscience and not their fears," Nader said.
