Ralph Nader Speaks at 2 Events in in Portland on Monday, April 9

Getting Steamed to Overcome Corporatism

Monday, April 9, 12 noon
Powell's City of Books

1005 W. Burnside Street
FREE and open to the public

As Occupy Wall Street protests spread across the country and the world, Ralph Nader's new book, Getting Steamed to Overcome Corporatism: Build It Together To Win, shows how Americans can generate the steam to turn the turbines for making corporations our servants, not our masters.

As Nader writes, our democracy is in decay, with no end in sight, unless there is a sustained response from an aroused citizenry to stop the corporatists from blocking so many solutions for our country's problems. His compendium of corporate crime, greed, and exploitation of honest people everywhere will raise your temperature—to the boiling point.
