Prez hopeful Stein (G) rallies movement to “Occupy the Courts” at steps of U.S. Supreme Court

Occupy the CourtsTo restore the rights of the people, we must take our Constitution back from the corporation.

Tens of thousands of Americans in over 130 cities gathered at federal courthouses and in public squares, nearly the two-year anniversary of Citizens United v. FEC, to reject the doctrines of corporate personhood and money is speech. Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party presidential candidate, is a lead speaker in Washington, D.C., where she joins protesters on the steps of the court building of the Supreme Court of the United States. Dr. Stein joins leading members of the Move to Amend coalition, as well as Thom Hartmann, and others in this role.

Stein said:

Since 1996, the Green Party has called for a constitutional amendment to abolish the doctrine of corporate personhood. Greens have been ahead of the curve, but today, the curve has caught up with us, and now this movement for a constitution that serves we, the people, has gathered a historic momentum.

 The Move to Amend coalition, responsible for today’s Occupy the Courts actions, is by far the nation’s largest and most diverse coalition working to overturn Citizens United v. FEC. In addition to today’s actions, local Move to Amend affiliates are instigators of the dozens of municipal and local government resolutions already adopted this year calling for constitutional reform.

Move to Amend is a genuinely non-partisan coalition in that its leadership includes members of various political parties, as well as independents. Among the prominent Green Party members who are co-founders of Move to Amend are Leesa George Friday (co-chair of the Black Caucus of the Green Party of the United States), Ben Manski (former national party co-chair, 2001-2004), and Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap (a local elected official in northern California).
