Corporate Power or People Power?
The few remaining long-standing limitations on corporate power in this country have been stripped away by the recent Supreme Court decision Citizens United. Government as we know it will be up for the highest bidder.
Corporations have been handed a megaphone, while we the people are forced to whisper.
We don’t intend to be quiet about this threat to democracy, and neither should you.
WILPF has joined the Steering Committee of a national movement to amend the Constitution in order to reverse Corporate Personhood and establish real democracy. You can sign at the www.MoveToAmend.org website.
In the first few hours, over 10,000 people signed, but for this movement to be successful we need hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens.
We need you.
We urge you to write letters to the editor by filling in the boxes below and clicking on "Get Papers". You will then be asked to choose a paper to send to which you want to sent your letter. You can repeat the process for more than one letter.
> Fill in the the left box with the distance in miles from your home of the location of newspapers that you want to reach and then in the right box enter your home zip code.
> Then click "Get Papers". You will then be taken to a screen where you will be able to choose a newspaper to which you want to send your letter (click on the circle next to its name).
> At the next screen, you will fill in your name and address and edit the letter (if you want to) and then click "Send Message" and you are done.
> However, you can repeat the process for as many newspapers as you like.
