Federal Courthouses nationwide, including San Diego
OCCUPY the Courts, SD Couny - Jan. 20th
880 Front Street
San Diego, CA 92101
Corporations are NOT people!
Money is NOT Speech!
Let's work hard to make 2012 the year in which corporations are stripped of the legal personhood that makes it legal for them to buy elections and politicians.
There's good news: Montana's Supreme Court recently upheld a ban on corporate election spending. Los Angeles and New York have just joined the list of cities urging the rest of the country to join Montana. And several bills have been introduced in Congress to amend the Constitution.
On January 20 and 21, there will be protests across the country marking the second anniversary of the horrible Citizens United U.S. Supreme Court decision that allows unlimited buying of candidates by corporations.
Inspired by Occupy Wall Street, Move To Amend is planning bold nationwide action to mark the second anniversary of the infamous Citizens United v. FEC decision, which established money as speech and entrenched the artificial concept of "corporate personhood".
Move to Amend volunteers across the USA will lead the charge on the judiciary which created — and continues to expand — corporate personhood rights.
OCCUPY Vista...will demonstrate on Friday, January 20 from 8am till about 9:30am at the Vista Courthouse as part of Occupy the Courts, a nationwide protest against the Citizens United decision (graphic attached). See Occupy San Diego on Facebook or elsewhere on the web. Occupy Vista has invited the other North County Occupy groups to join us at the Vista courthouse, the only major courthouse in North County.
OCCUPY San Diego
The San Diego noon rally will include:
Speakers Marjorie Cohn, Lori Saldaña, Mike Aguirre

San Diego Federal Courthouse
880 Front St., SD 92101
Bring friends! Bring signs!
Corporations are NOT people.
Money is NOT free speech.
Jan 20 is the 2nd anniversary of Citizens United, and the main protest will be at the U.S. Supreme Court, with smaller protests everywhere, including the SD Federal Courthouse at Noon. Senator Bernie Sanders authored a proposed amendment to the Constitution which would overturn Citizens United.
