Move To Amend:
Waging Non-Violent Revolution through Constitutional Amendment
With David Cobb
Corporations do not merely exercise power, they rule over us. The wealthy elite has stolen our sacred right to self-government, and the illegitimate, court-created legal doctrines of "corporate constitutional rights" and "money is political speech" legalize the theft.
All across the country ordinary folks are crying ENOUGH!!!! Come hear how you can get involved in a concrete campaign to abolish these doctrines via a constitutional amendment. Move To Amend's strategy incorporates art and culture, grassroots organizing and educating, resolutions and initiatives, and we are beginning to explore direct action strategies.
Come help us!
The session will be facilitated by David Cobb, a people's lawyer and an engaged citizen. Cobb has sued corporate polluters, lobbied elected officials, run for office himself, and been arrested for non-violent civil disobedience. He ran for Attorney General of Texas pledging to use the office to revoke the charters of corporations that violate health, safety and environmental protection laws. In 2004 he was the Green Party nominee for President of the US, and filed for the Ohio Recount that helped to launch a movement for election integrity and against the use of electronic voting machines.
