We, The Corporations

I've been wondering when people would begin to wise up to the crucial issue of corporate personhood, and it seems like it's finally happening! Whatever your cause is, corporate personhood is tied to it, and without addressing this issue we're not likely to succeed in bringing about progressive change or environmental sustainability, or anything good really!

I was sent an email from the organization "Move to Amend", who are trying to mobilize to amend the constitution to expressly prohibit corporations from having the rights of people. This reminded me to pass on the word, and encourage you, whatever you are working on, to incorporate this issue into your work...

If you're not up to speed on what corporate personhood is all about, I would advise checking out Move to Amend or Reclaim Democracy, although there are many groups working on this now, and as usual, the internet is full of information if you seek it out!
