5th & K | Cullen | July 15,2012 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

David Cobb Live!

Move to Amend’s dynamo spokesperson addressing: Overreaching Corporate Power: What Can Be Done?

David Cobb, a past Green Party presidential candidate, is now a primary force behind Move To Amend (MTA).  MTA is having great success in organizing ballot initiatives and resolutions stating that corporations are not people and money is not speech.  A great organizer, George Friday, will also speak. Hear Head Roc in Move to Amend rap and fabulous activist duo, Emma’s Revolution.

Politics looks more and more like an auction with seats going to the candidate who raises the most money. The “level playing field” is now heavily tilted toward the wealthy. Democracy is fast becoming a cashocracy ruled by plutocrats who control the purse strings. The January 2010 Supreme Court Citizens United ruling gave corporations and rich fat cats full rein to provide unlimited amounts of money, funneled through super PACs, to the politician of their choice and much of it able to be kept secret.

Meet with folks in the DC area for whom the issue of corporate power is paramount and who are now acting on it or want to act on it.  Some of the evening will be spent organizing, so please bring colleagues who have teaching, training, and speaking skills.

Endorsers: Coalition on Corporate Power-MTA DC, CodePink, Empower DC, Jobs with Justice,  MoveOn-DC,  Northern Virginia-MTA, Progressive Democrats of America, Respect DC, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, and many others.
