NE OHIO CITIZENS DECLARE INDEPENDENCE FROM CORPORATE RULE AND BIG MONEY IN POLITICS

The System Isn't Broken, It's Fixed

A description of the problems connected to the existence of corporate rights and large political contributions from a wealthy few and why an amendment to the U.S. Constitution -- declaring that only human beings, not corporations, possess constitutional rights and that money is not speech -- would expand democracy. By Greg Coleridge, Director of AFSC's Political and Economic Justice Program in Northeast Ohio.
