David Cobb launches California Move To Amend Tour

Thursday, September 15, 2011

David Cobb, an attorney and organizer for the Move to Amend coalition, will be touring California from September 9-22 to help local residents understand the history behind the recent decision and how they can work to abolish "Corporate Personhood" and establish a government of, by, and for the people by joining the Move to Amend campaign.

David Cobb is fiery speaker, and former Green Party presidential candidate. His talk "Creating Democracy & Challenging Corporate Rule" is part history lesson and part heart-felt call-to-action!
 
“Corporate Personhood” is the court-created doctrine that gives corporations constitutional rights intended for human beings. “Corporate personhood is not an inconsequential legal technicality. The Supreme Court ruled that a corporation was a ‘legal person’ with 14th Amendment protections before they granted full personhood to African-Americans, immigrants, natives, or women”, says Cobb.
 
Move to Amend is a coalition of over 123,000 people and organizations whose goal is to amend the United States Constitution to end corporate rule and legalize democracy.
