End Corporate Personhood and Demand Real Democracy!

9 Apr

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!

Invest in Main Street, Not Wall Street!

7 Jan

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.  

11/05/11 has passed, but it’s the New Year!, and there’s no time like the present to make a resolution to move at least one account (if you have more than one) to a local bank.  To learn more, check out “The Move Your Money” project at 

http://moveyourmoneyproject.org/

There you can find local banks or credit unions in your neighborhood, and learn more about the foundation in general (co-founded by Arianna Huffington).  According to Moebs Services (an economic research firm), more than 4 million accounts have already been moved out of big banks in the past year!

Join the movement, and make the next big bankers’ “fat bonus” check a little bit slimmer.  (Slimmer…  Hmm, that could be a resolution too! 🙂
