Rallies planned to oppose Citizens United decision, support new constitutional amendment

On Friday, www.MoveToAmend.org is sponsoring Occupy The Courts Day at more than 130 locations around the country, including the Supreme Court in Washington, DC, to protest the decision and advocate a constitutional amendment that repeals it.
