It’s a bold venture in the face of cynics who would criticise them for being idealistic dreamers. But, if people don’t try to do things like this, how are they ever going to come about?

A Conversation with

Walter Cronkite
& Congressman Dennis KucinichVideo excerpt now online! “What is quite clear – and would become clear as you go along with this campaign – is that you are trying, and I consider myself with you on this in every way… [To create] not only a massive but a basic change in our culture, in our entire approach to our relationships with other human beings… It’s not a matter of simply getting another Department of government. You’re speaking of an entire philosophical revolution.”~Walter Cronkite Watch video online now!   Also Conference Photos Updated!   Read Congressman John Conyers prepared remarks to conference attendees. Congressman Conyers meeting with MI group on the hill, getting them pumped up! Excerpt… “It is fitting we meet here today. Back in 1792, Dr. Benjamin Banneker, the famed African-American inventor and scientist in Washington, proposed a Department of Peace for the new Nation to his friends George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. His prophetic suggestion was not implemented; but now, more than 200 years later, the need for a Peace Department is too compelling to ignore. Since we met 2 years ago, we have seen new eruptions of violence in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and even Western Europe. Here at home gang warfare persists, along with the tragic levels of domestic violence. Even Hurricane Katrina has shown how desperation and frustration can lead to senseless violence within a community. Some of you have come to Congress before. Those of you lobbying Congress for the first time should remember this. You are exercising a right so basic to democracy that it is named in our Constitution: the right to petition your government. President Eisenhower put it well when he said that “Politics should be the part-time profession of every American.”Read Full Text   Ebay AuctionConference posters personally signed by
