Teach your voters well

CSN, Morello, Olmos rally against California Prop. 32

Opponents of Prop. 32 held a rally at Nokia Live on Oct. 3, and a Crosby, Stills and Nash concert broke out. CSN played for the better part of an hour and a half, with Graham Nash dedicating the final encore, “Teach Your Children,” to those in the state who continue to teach music to schoolkids.

Tom Morello set the stage for the evening with a brief, union-themed set, and between acts, Edward James Olmos rallied the troops against Prop. 32, which purports to set limits for campaign funding for corporations and unions, but would do so by placing limits on payroll deductions for such endeavors, gutting a key way unions raise such money, but leaving wealthy givers comparatively unfettered. “I have never stood in front of you to tell you how to vote in my life. I’m 65 years old,” Olmos said with a grin. “I know I look good. But I’m telling you right now, vote no on 32.”
