Third Annual Convention Minutes: part 2, 28 Mar 2002 [cached]
Paul Cienfuegos, the director of Democracy Unlimited, a movement rooted in Arcata and Humboldt County, northern California, reported to the convention on that community's enactment of a local initiative for two publicly-sponsored discussions of the role of corporations in Arcata.To get "Measure F," as it was called, on the ballot, volunteers obtained almost 2,000 signatures in 26 days.It provided that, in the context of citizen sovereignty over corporations, the city council would co-sponsor two town hall meetings on the question, "Can we have democracy when large corporations wield so much influence?"
The daily newspaper, "owned by a major corporation," attacked the measure eight days before the voting as a waste of money.But the mayor, running for re-election, supported the measure, and testimony for it from a local weekly, local nonprofit radio, Jim Hightower, Howard Zinn, and Noam Chomsky were critical, Cienfuegos said.
The second forum was held May 10, and Cienfuegos told the delegates that groups are starting identical initiatives in three other communities.
Cienfuegos, a new member of AfD, offered to travel, speak, or conduct weekend workshops about this plan and to help create models for raising and discussing the corporation-and-democracy issue in local communities.He is at PO Box 27, Arcata, Ca.95518, 707-822-2242/ closely with Cienfuegos, coordinating responses from Alliance chapters to the Arcata challenge, is attorney David Cobb, a leader of the Houston Alliance, 818 West 31st.
