The California Resistance Calls for an End to Corporate Rule

August 23, 2017

At a contentious California Democratic Party Convention in May that saw ideological conflicts between an entrenched establishment of privileged professionals and an emergent grassroots progressive insurgency, there were two notorious doctrines that delegates across the board nevertheless agreed to come down firmly against: the fiction that "corporations are people" and the related fallacy that "money equals political speech".

Let's Lead the Way for California - SINGLE PAYER NOW!

June 20, 2017

While the U.S. Senate -- in service to their corporate cronies -- is working to take away healthcare from millions of Americans, the California Senate passed a single-payer bill on a 23-14 vote, The bill is now headed to the State Assembly. A new poll shows 70% support for the Medicare-for-All type single-payer system the bill creates.

Please tell your Assembly member that you support The Healthy California Act (SB-562), and ask them to co-sponsor (author) it in the assembly.

Prop 59 Supporters Seek To Eliminate 'Corporate Personhood' Via Constitutional Amendment

September 14, 2016

A national effort supporters say would amend the U.S. Constitution to eliminate "corporate personhood" came to downtown San Jose this afternoon, where supporters gathered to push for the passage of a measure on the November ballot that could lend the state's support in making the change. 

About 30 people stood outside the Old Courthouse at the corner of North First and West St. James streets where they kicked off their campaign for Proposition 59. 

Prop 59 will aid fight against Citizens United

August 19, 2016

Many thanks to The Mercury News for their editorial supporting Proposition 59 ("Corporations are not individual people," Editorial, Aug. 18).

As written, very importantly, Proposition 59 is an advisory to legislators that focuses on both corporate personhood (corporations are not people) and reversing the Supreme Court decision on Citizen's United (money is not speech).
