Former Green Presidential Nominee Tours Georgia 
To Amend Constitution, Limit Corporate Power in America

Move to Amend national spokesperson David Cobb, attorney and lifelong
activist, is touring the Southeast, in an effort to build connections,
inspire activism, and reveal the origins of corporate power in
America.  The Georgia stops below are part of the lead up to a Move to
Amend South! Regional Convergence scheduled for Gainesville Florida
December 14th - 16th.  

The Platform of the Georgia Green Party has long advocated limits on
corporate powers.  "Long before the judicial abuse of Citizens United,
the Green Party has advocated for publicly and democratically financed
election campaigns," said Bruce Dixon of Kennesaw Georgia, chairman of
the Georgia Green Party and Managing Editor of BlackAgendaReport.com.
"We have also endorsed the effort of MoveToAMend.org to amend the U.S.
Constitution to provide legal recognition that just as slavery is the 
fallacious legal concept that people can be property, so too is
corporate personhood a fallacious legal concept that property are
people."

Move to Amend is a national coalition of over 241,000 people and
organizations whose goal is amending the United States Constitution to
end corporate rule by building a multiracial, cross-class democracy
movement. David's presentations are part history lesson and part
heart-felt call-to-action! "Challenging Corporate Rule & Creating
Democracy" aims to help local folks understand how they can work to
abolish corporate personhood and establish a government of, by, and for
the people.

These events are free and open to the public. Donations to help 
finance the tour are appreciated, but no one will be turned away for
lack of funds.
