Join us as we join 100 cities across the nation protesting the Citizens
United Supreme Court decision, which opened up the floodgate to unlimited
corporate spending to influence elections.
Come and hear about and protest the Citizens United decision. Raise your
voice against the deeper problem of “corporate personhood” and the purchase
of elections by the super-rich. Hear about our campaign to amend the US
The rally is being organized by Greater Boston Move to Amend, the local
affiliate of the Move to Amend national coalition endorsed by hundreds of
organizations, including several Occupy groups, and over one-hundred fifty
thousands individuals who have signed our “Petition to Amend.” The
coalition is working to help end de facto corporate rule and restore
democracy through a constitutional amendment establishing that corporations
are not people and campaign spending is not “free speech.”
The Boston event is one of 100 being held at federal courthouses across the
nation as part of “Occupy the Courts!” – the Move to Amend national day of
Move to Amend has organized successful petition drives calling for an
amendment in Los Angeles, CA, Madison, WI, Missoula, MT, and Boulder, CO.
The coalition’s goal is to mount 50 such campaigns nationwide this season.
Locally, Greater Boston Move to Amend will promote our amendment with
petition drives and public education aimed at passing resolutions of
support at the organizational, local, and eventually state level.
