Rev Billy Talen excluded from debate, calls for street presence

In an email message to supporters, Reverend Billy Talen, Green Party candidate for Mayor of New York City, asked his friends and supporters to turn out into the streets tomorrow, October 13th to call for inclusive debates instead of choreographed debates controlled by the Democratic and Republican Party and their minions. The debate, sponsored by media corporations, New York City Campaign Finance Board and El Museo Del Barrio, will feature only the Democratic and Republican candidates.

The full text of the email is below the fold.

Friends and Citizens,

Join us tomorrow night, Tuesday October 13 in front of the mayoral debate at El Museo del Barrio, 1230 Fifth Avenue at 104th Street. While Reverend Billy was not invited to be an official part of the debate we feel its important to have a strong presence there, on behalf of voters, third parties and Democracy itself. Bring noisemakers!
