Excluded from the nationally televised debates, Ralph Nader's Green Party presidential campaign tour has been selling out stadiums across the country, expanding its grassroots support base despite being shunned by national media and the political establishment.

Nader and an array of supporters addressed a capacity crowd at the 10,000-seat UIC Pavilion Oct. 10. The rally will be cablecast Saturday, Oct. 28 from Noon to 3 p.m. and from 5 to 8 p.m. on cable channel CAN TV19 in Chicago.

Nader and his running mate Winona LaDuke are campaigning on a platform of social and economic justice, universal health care and environmental protection. "Corporate influence is hijacking our democracy," Nader says. "Corporations were created to be our servants, but they have become our masters. That has to be changed, and it can be with a new Green Party political movement."

Along with Nader, the rally features:

· Filmmaker Michael Moore ("Roger & Me," "The Awful Truth")
· Pearl Jam vocalist Eddie Vedder
· 1980 independent presidential candidate John Anderson
· Chicago author Studs Terkel
· Talk show host Phil Donahue
· Universal health care advocate Quinten Young
· Former Dead Kennedys vocalist Jello Biafra
· Emma Lozano of the National Coalition for Dignity and Amnesty
· Dr. José Lopez of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center.
