  Keith Ellison from near north Minneapolis
o Introduction to the Issues of Corporations and Democracy by Betsy Barnum

Some of us from the newly formed North Minneapolis Neighbors for Peace are
joining the wave of candlelight vigils that will circle the globe this

Tuesday -- 1,605 vigils have been scheduled in 77 countries. You can see
