Speakers included Alan Johnston, David Crouch (Media Workers Against War) and Heather Brooke.
I don't want to go into too much detail as I am writing an article on this for the Journalist magazine.
However, the wonderful Victoria Brittain reminded me that Dennis Kucinich has dropped out of the 2008 election race to focus on his re-election to Congress.
Would he have won? Very unlikely, but given the verbal wrestling match between Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama, Dennis Kucinich may have done better than in Iowa and New Hampshire.
You can compare Kucinich with Edwards, Obama and Clinton at VoteGopher.
Kucinich supports universal healthcare, smaller class sizes, abolishing the deaht penalty, same-sex marrige, support for a woman's right to choose and a higher minimum wage.
What a difference those policies could make in a country blighted by Republican policies and a bickering Democratic Party.
Comments from Michael Shelby, an independent election integrity activist.
Congressman Kucinich said, “The most decisive moment in my life came when I was living in a car in the inner city and I thought about all the dreams I could have as a child and I decided at an early age that I was gonna be someone. And, I’ve had a lot of help along the way to get to this stage. But I can tell you, as President, the American people would have someone who remembers where he came from and has the compassion in his heart to lift up everyone to make sure everyone has a chance, thank you.”
If you had no other reason to vote for Dennis Kucinich for President of the United States, just meditate on that singular, human, compassionate, hope-filled, and uplifting answer for a while.
