Move to Amend's OCCUPY THE COURTS - 33 cities and counting!!

Call to Action

Inspired by our friends at Occupy Wall Street, and Dr. Cornel West, Move To Amend is planning bold action to mark the second anniversary of the infamous Citizens United v. FEC decision!

Occupy the Courts (OTC) will be a one day occupation of Federal courthouses across the country, including the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Friday January 20, 2012.

Move to Amend volunteers across the USA will lead the charge on the judiciary which created — and continues to expand — corporate personhood rights.

Americans across the country are on the march, and they are marching OUR way. They carry signs that say, “Corporations are NOT people! Money is NOT Speech!” And they are chanting those truths at the top of their lungs! The time has come to make these truths evident to the courts.

See the list, below, for the 33 cities across the country where OTC actions are currently being planned. To get in touch with the OTC organizers in one of those cites - or to start organizing an OTC action in front of a Federal Court near you - go to our website: http://movetoamend.org/occupythecourts.

Onward!
