politics over election fraud, an organized movement of pro-democracy
activists will gather today in 40 communities across the United States.
Meeting in "Voter Assemblies," these activists plan to review the
hundreds of thousands of voting rights violations reported in the 2008
elections, and to demand swift action to insure that never again is the
outcome of a U.S. election threatened by deliberate vote suppression,
voter intimidation, misinformation, machine malfunction, or reckless
election administration.

part of the United States, a movement for democracy is taking form. We

director of Liberty Tree and coordinator of the No More Stolen
Elections! campaign.
