"How Does a Progressive Spend a Saturday?"

From DemocracyFest:

Saturday night begins with DemStock where attendees will rejuvenate while listening to the spirited Flying Other Brothers, who are back by popular demand. "DemStock" is described by San Diego For Democracy Chair Charlie Imes as "our own version of Woodstock, only with no mud, much better food and bar service." Immediately following DemStock is the Beach Party Blowout, with Air America Radio talk show host/humorist Al Franken as the Master of Ceremonies.


This weekend, hundreds of "ordinary" citizens will stuff more education and celebration into a Saturday than they ever thought possible. They'll come from across the country to gather again for DemocracyFest(TM), an annual event that shows ordinary citizens how to gain influence in American politics. The 3rd annual DemocracyFest is a 3-day festival, which will take place at San Diego State University, on July 14-16.

On this special Saturday, participants will have the opportunity to learn from political strategists such as David Sirota, author of "Hostile Takeover: How Big Money & Corruption Conquered Our Government - and How We Take it Back." They'll ponder questions such as can we secure life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness through global debt cancellation with Nobel Peace Prize nominee Wahu Kaara. At night, they'll laugh with Air America Radio talk show host Al Franken, boogie to the Flying Other Brothers and Gary Hoey, and be inspired by such prominent political leaders as Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. Chairman Dean's speech will be open to the public and free of charge.
