The Democrats kick off their nomination – some would say coronation–party today in Chicago. Multi-national corporate funding, hypocrisy, and business as usual? Outside the convention center, protests are happening all around the city. We hear from long-time activist/physician Dr. Quinten Young, with Physicians for a National Health Plan, and updates on the daily theme-based demonstrations planned for Grant Park, including ongoing protests against Clinton’s signing of the so-called Welfare Reform Bill. And, Illinois Senator Carol Moseley-Braun, a major figure at the Convention, about a women’s right to vote and the Senator’s controversial visit to Nigeria.

Segment Subjects (keywords for the segment): 1996 Democratic National Convention; Welfare Reform Bill; Carol Moseley-Braun; political protest

Other mentions: Bill Clinton; Jimmy Carter; Progressive Labor Party; universal health care; Dr. Quinten Young; Physicians for a National Health Plan; Nigeria; Donna Shalala; Sani Abacha; National Black Caucus
