The National Campaign to End Corporate Personhood and Demand Democracy!
What: Board of County Commissioners meeting
Where: 12 SE 1st. St., Gainesville, FL
When: 5:30pm, Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Move To Amend Gainesville, an affiliate of the national organization, Move To Amend, is asking the Alachua County Commission to put a non-binding ballot initiave on the November ballot.
We plan to make a big push this Tuesday, June 26, at the Commission meeting with dozens of supporters speaking in favor. We will be gathering in front of the Commission chambers, starting at 5:00pm, to rally supporters.
History - The goal of Move To Amend is to amend the constitution to say that Corporations are not people, and money is not free speech, in rebuttal to the Supreme Court ruling on Citizens United v. FEC in 2010. Hundreds of towns, cities, and counties across the country have already passed this resolution to ask Congress to begin the process of amending the Constitution.
We would like you to attend this event on Tuesday. If you would like background information regarding Move To Amend you may talk to a spokesman, Phil Reitz (352.443.9814). You can also go to the website for additional information.

GAINESVILLE MOVE TO AMEND
Gainesville Move to Amend is a local affiliate of the Move to Amend Coalition
We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United 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.
