Alfonso Omar Saldana published Corporate Weaponization in Announcements 2023-02-14 20:37:06 -0800
The Corporate Weaponization of the Federal Government
A subcommittee of the full House Judiciary Committee held a hearing last week on the “Weaponization of the Federal Government.” Two panels discussed the “politicization of the FBI and DOJ and attacks on American civil liberties.” It rehashed old grievances about how Trump and others were treated by the two agencies over the last few years.
If exposing and ending “weaponization of the government” is the target, then the Judiciary Committee should take aim at the single biggest culprit: corporations.

Time to Investigate Corporate Insurrection
It’s hard not to be angry as the January 6th Congressional hearings on the Capitol insurrection come to an end, at least for the moment. The anger we speak of is in addition to one’s feelings about the actions of Donald Trump and his loyalists.

Reflecting on Changes
I have transitioned out of the National Director position at Move to Amend and my long-serving colleagues have stepped forward as co-leaders. It has been an honor and privilege to have co-founded Move to Amend and worked with the organization since its inception in 2009. We have come a long way! There is still much to do – including, and beyond, passing the We the People Amendment. It is crucial that we continue to work in coalition to create an authentically inclusive democracy movement equivalent in scale to the forces that have caused and continue to fuel the enormous crises we face.

The Issue is Democracy
The recent Florida bill signed by Governor Ron DeSantis to revoke the special tax status of Disney Corporation for its leaders speaking out against the new “Don’t Say Gay” law is less about DeSantis or Disney than it is about the decline of our “representative democracy.”

Alfonso Omar Saldana published Mothers Day in Announcements 2022-05-07 21:55:08 -0700
Every day is the right day for honoring and celebrating mothers, as well as the rest of the supportive women in our lives.
That said, Mother’s Day is yet another example of a social movement being co-opted and corporatized in the US.
In fact, Americans will spend upwards of $31.7 billion on Mother’s Day this year, an amount which has gone up nearly every year since 2012.Read more
INVEST a few dollars toward legalizing democracy and a Constitution that only belongs to We The People, not the corporations!

Why I support Move to Amend
What's the number one issue you care about? It can be anything -- ie voter rights, BLM, climate change, abolishing ICE, etc. If you look close enough, you will see corporate personhood fingerprints and traces of dark money all over it. The great corporatization of Congress...it's not a Conspiracy, its our sad reality. Our Representatives no longer represents We the People, they only represent their Corporate Donors' best interest.
And while there are many great orgs and movements out there addressing corruption and the many other subsequent issues we are facing, only Move to Amend is addressing the two root issues: Money in Politics AND the absurdity of Corporate Personhood Rights.
This will require a LOT of public education, political engagement, and persistence -- especially when there's a lot of private interests that will try to stop us using their deep pockets -- but it CAN be done if we all play our part: volunteer, spread the word, and INVEST a few dollars toward legalizing democracy and a Constitution that only belongs to We The People, not the corporations!
Will you help me raise money to get the undue influence of big money and corporate interests out of our government by setting up a monthly donation to Move to Amend on this page?
