This is from POCLAD (Program on Corporations, Law & Democracy). It contains links to source material about the history of corporate 'personhood' and the transfer of rights from people to corporations, including court cases, studies articles etc. In other words, all the essential information we're not getting from schools or the corporate media. Here's the link to the page with the link to all of the resource materials:
Real change, led by We the People, is needed in our nation and world. A bottom-up democracy insurgency calling and working for genuine self-governance has begun. It's represented in the US by multi-state responses to attacks on workers, the Occupy Wall Street movement and Move to Amend; and internationally by the massive "Arab Spring" demonstrations throughout the Middle East, North Africa and beyond.
The Declaration of Independence in 1776 was the first major collective statement in the colonies outlining oppression and asserting self-determination. The Populists followed the same course in their Omaha Platform of 1892.
The problem isn't a few corporate "bad apples" or in general this or that corporate abuse. The fundamental problem is never-intended constitutional powers and rights corporations have acquired permitting them to usurp us, We the People, from governing ourselves.
POCLAD invites you to join together with others where you are in study/action groups to study, learn and act. We've prepared this Democracy Insurgency Curriculum to assist those who want to embark on this quest.
