Impose democracy on the courts!
Since the Supreme Court handed down its infamous “Citizens United v. FEC”
decision on January 21, 2010, Americans everywhere are waking up to what
we at Move to Amend have been saying all along: large multi-national corporations,
with their insatiable thirst for profits, dominate every aspect of our political and
social life. They have crashed our economy, raped our environment, and taken
ownership of our ballot boxes in an attempt to turn our democracy into a corporatocracy.
Move To Amend is planning bold action to mark this
notorious date — Occupy the Courts — a one day occupation
on Friday January 20, 2012, of the Federal Courts, including
the Supreme Court of the United States and as many of the
89 U.S. District Court Buildings as we can. Inspired by Dr. Cornell
West, who was arrested on the steps of the Supreme Court last
month, Move to Amend will lead the charge on the judiciary which
created — and continues to expand — corporate personhood rights.
Colorado Move To Amend co-chair Steve Justino conceived this idea and has agreed to
coordinate the effort. There are lots of details to attend to: permits need to be requested,
guest speakers and local celebrities need to be invited, and promotional activities need to be
started — to name just a few.
We’re depending on you to help make this a success! For more information or to get started planning your Occupy the Courts event, contact us.Americans across the country are on the march, and they are marching OUR way. They carry signs that say, “Corporations are NOT people! Money is NOT Speech!” And they are chanting those truths at the top of their lungs! The time has come to make thesetruths evident to the courts.
We'll be adding tools and resources to our website at
http://movetoamend.org/OccupyTheCourts very soon. Check back later today and tomorrow.
Please get involved and help us make this action the huge success that — for the
sake of our country — it needs to be, please contact us, and get started right away!
We can't do it without you,
