Tomorrow is Earth Day -- and while planting a tree is a great way to spend the day, we can't forget that we are up against a powerful, extractive, and brutal system that our individual choices will never be enough to defeat.
Do you know who loves these exhortations to individual action to stop climate collapse? The 100 corporations who are responsible for 71% of the planet's carbon emissions!
The #WeThePeopleAmendment is one of the most powerful ways we can bring these corporations to heel -- support the movement to end their reign over our planet by becoming a monthly sustainer of Move to Amend today.
By eliminating corporate constitutional rights, they could no longer control our government and policy with campaign funding and lobbying, nor could they challenge regulations in court by claiming other constitutional rights (like their 5th Amendment "right" to future profits lost).
All of us doing our part to reduce waste and pollution is good, and we should continue to live as conservationists even after we win! But it's simply not going to save the planet -- only collective action to end corporate rule will do that.
We hope you have a lovely #EarthDay and thank you for ALL you do to make sure our planet can continue to sustain us.
