Move to Amend: the movement to limit corporate power01/20/11 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up today we'll meet a 39-year-old south Florida woman who wants to marry a corporation. She is Echo Steiner. She says since the Citizen's United Supreme Court decision extended even more rights to corporations - why not marry a corporation? She's looking to merge with a corporation who is "well-endowed," environmentally conscious and socially responsible.
Later we'll talk with Carla Christianson who is statewide coordinator of Move To Amend which is a grassroots movement to amend the U.S. Constitution to take away "personhood" rights of corporations. There will be a protest against corporate power in Sarasota tomorrow afternoon at the corner of Bahia Vista and US 41. The one year anniversary of the Supreme Court decision "Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission" is tomorrow.
