Fighting Corporate Power

Fighting Corporate Power: Friday May 7th: 7 am – 8 pm

Since when did corporations become more powerful than people?  How is it that corporate entities have been awarded all the benefits of US citizenship, without any of the responsibilities?  And what can WE THE PEOPLE do about it??  This special day of programming will address the recent supreme court decision on corporate free speech, as well as other aspects of creeping corporate power that undermine sovereignty and democracy.
