The Nader/LaDuke super-rallies have blitzed through Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis and Boston. Last Friday night the Nader/LaDuke Super rally came to New York. Future super rallies will take place in Oakland and St Louis, among other places. At Friday night’s New York City rally, one of those who spoke was award winning filmmaker and writer Michael Moore.
