If you thought our elections were for sale before the Supreme Court decision, the gloves are off.
Every issue we work on... the environment, peace, justice, civil rights, women's rights, reproductive rights, gay rights, prison reform, immigration reform, big-agriculture issues, food security, clean water security and access, and so many more will meet more opposition and more high priced opposition than ever before.

This extreme decision is already rallying folks around the cause of democracy. The Campaign to Legalize Democracy [http://www.MoveToAmend.org] is organizing to demand a constitutional amendment that abolishes corporate personhood, which is what gave corporations the fiction of 'personhood' in the first place. One of the founders of MoveToAmend is Riki Ott, marine biologist from Cordova, Alaska, who lived through the oil spill and helped organize her community’s response.

Join the WILPF Corporations v Democracy committee on 7pm February 27 Live Oak Grange 1900 17th Avenue, Santa Cruz to see Riki’s 90 minute video:

Black Wave: the Legacy of Exxon-Valdez - Learn the story behind the disastrous oil spill - while Exxon profits have soared, the citizens of Alaska still struggle with the environmental and economic damage to their community.

Co-sponsored by: Santa Cruz WILPF , Live Oak Grange , Santa Cruz chapter of The Sierra Club.

Free, open to all, refreshments provided.
