Humboldt Move to Amend

Date Established: 

September 2016

The local Move to Amend affiliate for Humboldt County, California.

We, the People of Humboldt County, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.

The Supreme Court is misguided in principle, and wrong on the law. In a democracy, the people rule. We Move to Amend.

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.

At the ballot box; Arcata voters to decide on electricity tax and 'Corps Ain't Peeps'

October 8, 2012

Arcata residents heading to the polls next month will have a chance to vote on whether households with high electricity use should be taxed and whether they agree with the Supreme Court ruling that gives corporations the same rights as people.

Measure H, drafted by former City Councilman Dave Meserve and known as “Corps Ain't Peeps,” seeks to limit corporations' power within city limits without going against federal law and putting the city under legal scrutiny.
