We the People



First, I'd like to thank all my supporters and dele­gates. I'm very grateful for your assistance and sacri­fice, most especially because it enabled the We the People effort to move forward throughout the entire country.

Now, several months later, we've attained over 4 million votes. That's over 20 percent of the entire delegation. Now we go to the convention. We go there not in vain, but to follow through on the commitment of all those who worked for us, who voted for us, and whose hopes still reside within the Democratic Party.

Mr. Clinton has a very large number of committed delegates. There are a number of super delegates who are on his side, although they are not legal­ly bound to vote for him. What then, is this conven­tion all about?

It's about the soul of the Democratic Party. It's about representing the unrepresented. It's about giving voice to the voice­less. We're not coming here to talk to just our­selves or the media.


We're going to New York to support the tradi­tions of the party of Jefferson and Madison. We're going there to con­tinue the attack on the powerful elite who run our government like a private club.

We intend to participate in the key issues involving the platform: involving credentials; involving rules. Our voice will be heard.

At this time we may not have the majority of the delegates. What we have is the power of a critical mass of people commit­ted to an insurgent move­ment within the party.

On floor fights, on the platform, on working and talking with other dele­gates, we have to make sure that this thing is not just a continuation of the presidential gong show. We will fight on the floor for the platform. We will make the Democratic Party stand and deliver.


This must be about defining how the Democratic nominee and party differ from Mr. Perot and Mr. Bush, who, for the present, are leading our putative Democratic nominee, Mr. Clinton.

There's a lot of work for us to do ...

We have to demand that the hundred dollar limit become the rule of this party, that real political reform take place.

That means term limits.

That means rolling back the pay raise.

That means free mail and free television for candi­dates.

That means universal registration so that every person will be entitled to vote.

We must rebuild the American cities. The Congress has voted a bil­lion dollars, but the mayors need $35 billion. The Democratic leadership must fight for the mayors' 7-point plan.

There's more than that. We have to not only create new jobs in the cities, but stop the flow of jobs south. We have to fight the Mexican trade treaty that's being negotiated by Bush. This is happening in secret, dominated by corporate management, and outside the normal processes that laws require in our free country.

We have to fight the GATT treaty, as it is now being negotiated.

All these issues threaten our self, our environment. and our sovereignty.


In terms of the environ­ment, we have to commit to goals that make sense. We must cut energy con­sumption dramatically, reduce CO2 emissions, and stop the burning of danger­ous toxic materials in incinerators near people's homes.

We have to stick togeth­er; we have to work on other delegates, and we have to communicate to the American people that voting for the Democratic Party and its nominee makes sense in their lives. Not just today and this year, but two years and four years from now.

Americans are in a rut because those who lead are influenced by the few per­cent who control ninety percent of the resources. Our current leaders are controlled by the political action committees and by the decrepit lobbying power structure that reigns in Washington.

This is the party of oppo­sition. It must now be the party of change.

We need every delegate and volunteer that will be with us in New York to help us lead the party that was led by FDR, Truman, and Kennedy. We must continue in the historic tra­dition of representing those who don't have a represen­tative.

Let me thank you for joining us at a time when your support was so great­ly needed. When you come to New York, come ready to fight, to be an advocate of change, and even to have a good time. I look forward to being with you.

"Hot time, summer in the city ... " As the words of the popular old song so aptly express, this is New York, July '92. It's hot. It's wild. And it's wonderful. It's also one of the biggest tourist attractions in the world today, hosting an estimated twenty five and a half million tourists per year. New York is Disneyland for grownups.

This year, the city of New York is going all out to graciously host the Democratic National Convention. The New York '92 committee was formed to stage a week of special events for the convention delegates and their families.

Sunday, July 12: The committee hosts fifty six wel­coming receptions between 5:30 and 8:30 PM in all five boroughs. By invitation.

Evenings: The first "Midsummer Night Swing Dance Under the Stars," featuring a live swing band, will be held at Fountain Plaza of Lincoln Center between 8:30 and 11:30 PM. A free dance lesson will be given at 6:30 PM for any interested parties. The "Midsummer Night Swing" will continue Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Monday, July, 13:
Delegates will be hosted at a restau­rant dine-out event highlighting the extraordinary variety of food and dining options available in New York City mid-morning. By Invitation.

Tuesday, July 14: On Tuesday, July 14, the focus will be on fashion and shopping with a delegate fun run event at 8:00 AM in Central Park.

Mid-day: Between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM, the '.92 Host Committee will stage "New York Is Fashion," which will be the largest outdoor celebrity fashion show ever, featuring American fashion and New York designers in Central Park. By Invitation.
Also on Tuesday, shopping busses will operate throughout the day with tour guides and shopping experts for delegates and their families.

Evenings: "The Museum Mile Festival," will be held from 6:00 to 10:00 PM between 82nd and 104th streets, on 5th Avenue. The festival was moved ahead to July to accommodate convention delegates and their families. Included in the festival are the Museum of Natural History, the Hayden Planetarium, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Wednesday, July 15: Early morning will focus on cul­ture and entertainment with the "Muffins and Masterpieces at MOMA," event with breakfast served at the Museum of Modern Art between 9:00 and 11:00 AM for delegates and their families. By invitation.

Mid-day: The city plans to close Times Square to host it's most spectacular event of all, "Broadway on Broadway," which will feature live performances by the stars of the biggest Broadway shows on a stage in front of a giant Sony Jumbotron TV screen. Additional events on Wednesday will include back­stage tours, museum activities, and gallery tours.

Thursday, July 16: Will focus on "Unique New York Day." Events will include plans for Unique New York Day tickets/visits to network tapings, including soaps, network news, and talk shows. In addition, tours and visits to all five boroughs are planned, highlighting the diversi­ty and excitement of New York outside of Manhattan, for all delegates and their families. The city will pre­sent free concerts on the Central Park Summer Stage, as well as free Shakespeare in the Park with performances of "As You Like It." Carnegie Hall is offering special tickets to performances of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

Things to do, Places to see:
New York City offers many interesting side trips such as an outing to the newly refurbished Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island with easy access from the city via subway and ferry. Another must-see is the state of the art Central Park Zoo facility, which has recently undergone a four year, $35 million reconstruction as an "animal garden."

A movie stage show at the Radio City Music Hall featuring the world famous Rockettes is always a favorite. A trip to the top of the Empire State Building is equally as popular. "Crazy for You" and "Guys and Dolls" are two of the hottest tickets on Broadway. The reliable "oldies" "Cats" and "Phantom of the Opera" are also good bets.

The Guggenheim Museum is due to open the end of June after major renovation. The Whitney Museum of American Art is hosting a new George Bellows exhibit. The New York Public Library is exhibiting a Walt Whitman Centenary Celebration. All these attrac­tions are easily accessible by bus, subway, or on foot.
