RESOLUTION TO END CORPORATE PERSONHOOD

Posted by & filed under .

A CONSTITUTIONAL

AMENDMENT

TO END

‘CORPORATE PERSONHOOD’

Whereas

>The OWS Declaration of the Occupation of New York City states “a democratic government derives its just power from the people, not from corporations

and, whereas

>An ABC News/Washington Post poll found that 83% of Americans oppose the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, which affirmed that corporations are people

and, whereas

>By supporting an end to corporate personhood, OWS clearly aligns itself with the vast majority of Americans who oppose the fundamentally flawed and antidemocratic concept that corporations are people,

Therefore –

The General Assembly supports a constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood.
