For over 20 years I have researched and written about the need for and mechanisms of social change. The Democratic National Convention in Denver brings back various visions and views of the 1968 convention in Chicago. For perspective, I was 16 and living an hour from downtown Chicago when things started happening. Several friends and I were stopped on the expressway from entering the downtown area. We went home and missed the action. I am also going to miss this years conventions because I have no funds and must do my thing here in North Carolina.
I have written earlier about the massive social movement that Obama has catalyzed. This article brings you the latest in plans, politics and philosophy from the social activists . I urge anyone who is close by to join the cause of taking back our country. Denver (and Minneapolis next week) are both among our most tolerant and progressive cities – visited each a few times. Also read about Denver’s lax laws on smoking marijuana. It is our country and we must make sure that Obama-Biden fulfill our needs and their promises!! The whole world will truly be watching – just as they were in 1968.
