Join Move to Amend to Declare Our Independence from Corporate Rule in communities across the nation. Let’s educate our fellow citizens about the corporate threat to our democracy, and get them engaged in the movement to take back our country!
Move to Amend holds monthly Take Action Webinars from 4-5:30pm (Pacific Time) – and the next one is tomorrow, TUESDAY, APRIL 10th. To register and learn more about how you can participate in an online video conference, click on the link below.
The meetings are designed to learn about organizing tools, campaign opportunities, and to get tips and ideas for events and creative ways to educate your community about Corporate Personhood. (For example, 4th of July is a great time to spread the word and expand the movement – dress as corporate judges and corporate “persons” and dance and sing about the takeover of our democracy in your local 4th of July parade!)
Find more tips and ideas at http://www.MoveToAmend.org. Americans of all political persuasions are fed up!

The New Museum in New York City recently opened their latest Triennial, called “The Ungovernables“, an exhibition that “takes its inspiration from the concept of ‘ungovernability’ and its transformation from a pejorative term used to describe unruly ‘natives’ to a strategy of civil disobedience and self-determination. The Ungovernables is meant to suggest both anarchic and organized resistance and a dark humor about the limitations and potentials of this generation.” Judy Berman at Flavorpill writes of one of the most compelling qualities of the show, in that it ”after a year that began with Arab Spring and ended with the global Occupy movement, this [focuses] on young people from around the world and their various ‘urgencies,’ while acknowledging that their particular concerns are only beginning to coalesce”.
If you’re in New York, it seems very worthwhile a visit.
OWS encouraged individuals to take matters into their own hands and move their money on November 5th, 2011 out of the “Bix Six” banks (Bank of America, Citi, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo) and instead, use community banks or credit unions.
