Monsanto Isn’t Feeding the World—It’s Killing Our Children

March 15, 2017

Unfortunately, we know why—corporate control of our regulatory system. Perhaps the better question is, having failed to rein in Congress’ loyalty to a handful of ruthless, emboldened corporations, can we elect new people, at every level of our government, who will work for us? More critically, can we do it in time to save ourselves?

Chris Hedges: 'The Enemy Is Not Donald Trump or Steve Bannon—It Is Corporate Power' (Video)

March 15, 2017

“This resistance must also be accompanied by an alternative vision of a socialist, anti-capitalist society. Because the enemy in the end is not Trump or Bannon—it is corporate power,” Hedges says. “And if we do not stop corporate power, we will never dismantle fascism’s seduction of the white working class and unemployed.”

The Best Defense is a Good Offense

March 1, 2017

As the saying goes, the best defense is a good offense. We've been on the offense for real particpatory democracy for all people--not corporations--since day one. In this high-stakes game, our offense has been and remains building a movement to pass the We the People Amendment, and then taking up the challenge of perfecting our democracy so it truly represents the vast and myriad communities knitting our nation together.

Become a sustaining member of the Campaign to Legalize Democracy! Please contribute $28 a month for the 28th amendment (or whatever you can afford)!

Emergent Fascism In The U.S. - Historical And Current Implications For Social Justice Organizing

February 20, 2017

Join leaders from Move to Amend for a conference call to explore the parallels and differences between the fascist program of the Trump administration and the 1930s and 1940s when fascist rose to power in Europe, as well as American fascism that has been strongest in the U.S. South, since the Civil War. We seek to better understand what lessons we can learn from history, and what strategic adjustments are needed in our fight for democracy and justice to address the current situation.
