MoveOn Gainesville and CMC Present: "The Story of Citizens United v. FEC: Why Democracy Only Works When People Are in Charge"

Published Jimmy - Sat, 02/19/2011 - 1:12pm

 

This brand new documentary from the folks who brought us "The Story of Stuff" analyzes the political and economic consequences of the Supreme Court's decision to side with the Citizens United organization's claim that money is speech, further cementing the legal precedent that corporations qualify as "persons" under the U.S. constitution.

The film is being debuted at house parties and public screenings like this one all over the country, with the goal of kickstarting a grassroots movement for a constitutional amendment that will undo the Citizens United vs. FEC decision and rid U.S. jurisprudence of the notion of "corporate personhood" once and for all.  Join us and help build the movement against corporate tyranny.  This event is co-sponsored by MoveOn Gainesville.
