Date: January 20,2012
Location:Carl B Stokes Federal Courthouse 801 West Superior Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio
#OC and Occupy the Courts(Move 2 Amend) will be a one day occupation of Federal courthouses in over 50 cities, including the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Friday January 20, 2012.
Inspired by our friends at Occupy Wall Street, and Dr. Cornel West, planning for bold actions are underway to mark the second anniversary of the infamous Citizens United v. FEC decision
Move to Amend volunteers across the USA, including here in Cleveland, will lead the charge on the judiciary which created — and continues to expand — never-intended corporate personhood rights.
Americans across the country are on the march, and they are marching OUR way. They carry signs that say, “Corporations are NOT people! Money is NOT Speech!” And they are chanting those truths at the top of their lungs! The time has come to make these truths evident to the courts.
Help us as we develop plans for a mock wedding between a real person and “corporate person” — complete with wedding procession from one federal courthouse to another in downtown Cleveland over the noon hour. On hand may very well be the 5 Supreme Court justices who voted for the Citizens United decision donned in their judicial robes complete with corporate logos…and who knows what else. Join us!
[Note: We have already received a permit to be on the plaza in front of the Stokes Federal Courthouse on Superior Ave.]
