Acclaimed Author David Sirota to Speak at UAPA Picnic on June 22, 2008

sirotaUpper Arlington Progressive Action is proud to announce that noted political author David Sirota will speak at the 4th Annual UAPA Picnic in the Park on Sunday, June 22, at 2:00 p.m. Sirota’s new book, THE UPRISING: An Unauthorized Tour of the Populist Revolt Scaring Wall Street and Washington (Crown Publishing Group) will be released on May 28, 2008. The book includes a chapter on Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and his efforts to shape the populist movement in Washington.

 

THE UPRISING, which follows Sirota’s New York Times bestseller Hostile Takeover (2006), reports on today’s seething popular discontent on both the Right and Left, which is creating a new populist political movement roiling the 2008 presidential campaign and national politics. From behind-the-scenes negotiations on Capitol Hill to an ExxonMobil stockholder meeting and the campsite of the Minutemen guarding the U.S.-Mexico border, Sirota traveled the United States to report on this anger and the populist uprising it is creating.uprising

The book traces the roots of populism, as well as the efforts to thwart populism, including the Democratic Party’s “superdelegate” system. THE UPRISING features exclusive reporting on icons across the political spectrum, from CNN’s Lou Dobbs, to Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, to ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillorsen. The book shows why Molly Ivins hailed Sirota as “a new-generation populist who instinctively understands that the only real questions are ‘Who’s getting screwed’ and ‘Who’s doing the screwing?’”

Please join us in welcoming David Sirota to Upper Arlington, and hear how grassroots groups like UAPA will transform this country from the ground up. Sirota will be signing copies of his book, which will be for purchase, following his remarks. Please note that we cannot accept credit cards. For more information on the Picnic in the Park, please see the related article.

Pancakes, Post Cards and Persuasion

Ohio women voted 54% for Al Gore in 2000 but only 50% for John Kerry in 2004.

That was the difference in the election.

WOMEN WIN ELECTIONS!

Join us for pancakes and post card sending. We will be writing to persuadable women in Ohio who are soft-Republican and Independent voters and sharing why we are voting for Barack Obama and Joe Biden and the rest of the Democratic ticket this year.

Women are ready for a conversation about the issues that affect their everyday lives, and they need to know the truth about McCain and Palin and their failed, out-of-touch policies and ideas!

So, if you don't get writer's cramp, we'll supply the post cards, addresses and even talking points to get you started. Feel free to bring a friend. . . and a roll of stamps (if you don't mind)!
