Corporations Hiding Dirty Secrets Behind Free Speech Claims May Soon Have To Admit Bloody Hands

December 9, 2014

A surprising turn of events is setting a new legal stage.

A series of conflicting rulings by one of the nation’s most right-wing federal courts is raising the unexpected possibility that a U.S. corporation with “blood on its hands” will not be able to keep hiding that fact from American consumers.

The venue is the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., which in recent years has some of the most pro-corporate, anti-public interest rulings in America. It struck down new labeling on cigarette boxes, saying using images was too graphic and impinged on corporate speech rights. It struck down a new labor regulation allowing “know your rights” posters in in employee break rooms.

'We Will Only Get Louder': Dozens of Communities Vote to Boot Big Money from Politics

November 6, 2014

Huge margins back up claim that 'nearly all Americans share the sentiment that corporations should not have the same rights as people'

Citizens in dozens of communities voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday for their legislators to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision, which opened the door for the super-rich and corporations to trample democracy.

Federal Election Commission ruling and declare that only human beings – not corporations – are entitled to constitutional rights and that money is not speech and campaign spending can be regulated.

Residents in dozens of cities had the opportunity to vote on measures calling for an end to the doctrines of corporate constitutional rights and money as free speech, and in every single town the vote was supportive. Often by an overwhelming margin.
