Move to Amend Barnstorming Tour with Ashley Sanders
at the Thurston County Courthouse Saturday
Ashley Sanders, a Move to Amend national spokesperson
Rainer resident and former Rainier School Board member Mike Savoca reports to the Yelm Community Blog that he has formed a local chapter of the national organization Move to Amend.
"Move to Amend is a national coalition of nearly 300,000 people and organizations whose goal is to amend the US Constitution to end corporate rule and get money out of politics," quoting their website.
Savoca says this group, "is fighting the huge influence of multinational corporations "buying" our government with huge, disguised political campaign donations and spending by Super PACs and 501(c)4 organizations."
He says, "We got a bill through the state house but failed in the state senate…ultimately we have to amend the US Constitution because the U.S Supreme Court ruled that a corporation is a person, and money is free speech and can no longer be regulated, so all the campaign finance laws that applied to corporations were thrown out the window."
Savoca urges, "people to attend a meeting on Friday September 27th, 6:30pm at the Thurston County Office-Courthouse complex to hear the national spokesperson, Ashley Sanders discuss and have an exchange with supporters of what supporters of this issue can pursue."
"Ashley Sanders' presentation "Organizing to End Corporate Rule & Get Money Out of Politics" outlines the history of the American Constitution as it pertains to Corporate Personhood and illegitimate but legal corporate constitutional rights. It will be followed by a facilitated discussion session and Q&A. Sanders aims to help local folks understand how they can work to abolish corporate personhood and establish a government truly of, by, and for the people," quoting the website.
