Ralph Nader will bring his Independent "Shift the Power" presidential campaign to Charlottesville on Sunday, July 13.
The Presidential candidate for the Independent Green Party will be holding a 1:30 p.m. news conference and a 2 p.m. Nader/Gonzalez campaign rally. Both events will be held at the Gravity Lounge on the Downtown Mall
Some of Nader's key issues concerning Virginia include the lack of a comprehensive statewide transportation plan, the polluting of rivers, the loss of jobs to NAFTA, off-shoring jobs by multinational corporations, and effects of the Iraq War on military families.
The Nader/Gonzalez Campaign also says they support a living wage, and "Canadian-style" public health insurance system for all.
