End Corporatocracy: Time Frames & Actions

Come Together. Spread the Word. Raise Your Voice. The Time is Now. We are All a Part of This.

In solidarity, “WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND AN END TO CORPORATE PERSONS”We call to Amend the United States Constitution

We support Move to Amend's Proposed 28th Amendment to the Constitution

There are many people actively engaged in grass roots movements that support many important causes, though the people-force is divided. These people are making important gains in very specific areas while the institutional structure aided by corporate personhood continues to exist and perpetuate more problems. We all have to join our collective energies and come together around eliminating corporate persons. The success of all the people coming together about this issue will surely lead to further actions that will continue to help turn the tide from its present course as well as aid the grass roots activists and organizers in their specific causes once the abolition of corporate persons is achieved.

We are on a train run by corporations who are accelerating us toward a cliff. If we do not act to take away the power from the corporations they will continue to make as much money as possible with no regard to the environment which will further accelerate the train toward the cliff. If we all come together and rise up against corporations we can slow the train. We will also have the highest probability of stopping the train if we do this. (Rising up against corporations means, coming together in solidarity to declare that the Constitution be amended to say a person is a human and only a human and that money is not free speech) Included are links meant to inform people about the issue of corporate personhood, show people good places to get informed daily, show we are not alone in this movement and inform people about neoliberalism. The links are a collection of short articles, videos and the introduction to the book Profit over People which all connect to focus on the main points mentioned.

The efforts of people working to help the environment and to bring about social change will continuously be undermined if corporations have the legal status that they currently benefit from. In succeeding with these actions, we the people will gain a legal footing that will be critical in moving the movement forward to address the ecological issues and to build a sustainable society. It is clear, if corporations are allowed to retain their rights they will continue to embrace destructive events caused by climate change as money making opportunities. With time being against us because of environmental issues the sooner the better with regard to getting the amendment passed. Between now and the 2012 elections, the goal is to build a movement to make this the paramount issue leading up to the elections so, Spread the Word. Join the Movement. We are not Alone.
