Vermont Introduces Resolution to Amend US Constitution, Ban Corporate Personhood,
“Whereas, free and fair elections are essential to American democracy and effective self-governance, and
Whereas, individual persons are rightfully recognized as the human beings.....
Whereas, large corporations have used their so-called rights to successfully seek the judicial reversal of democratically enacted laws passed at the municipal, state, and federal levels aimed at curbing corporate abuse, and
Whereas, these judicial decisions have rendered democratically elected governments ineffective in protecting their citizens against corporate harm to the environment, health, workers, independent business, and local and regional economies", (quote from Vermont's proposed legislation)
the direction is clear and Vermont has pointed to the way. Come join us in a Rally to Amend on March 12th in North Palm beach.
A Bus will be leaving Melbourne at 10:00 am.
seating is limited please call ASAP.

ABOUT ARIZONA SHOOTING SPREE...
William Rivers Pitt speaks bluntly and frankly about why the Arizona shooting happened. He pulls no punches.
A Note to Progressives
I know my country is in transition from a representational Democracy of the people to a representational democracy of economic interests in the the form of trans-national and national corporations. The fear of the founders of this nation has come true concerning the concentration of wealth in too few hands; “Jefferson feared that without proper checks and balances, an aristocratic financial class would wield a disproportionate amount of influence in government and thus erode popular democracy.”
WIKILEAKS ROUND-UP / Updated Mon. Jan. 17, 2011
What is Wikileaks? Documentary film at FIRST THURSDAY March 3rd -- and more on the WikiLeaks issue.
After the Obama stimulus for the overall economy, financial sector and auto companies, financial indices are up and 1.4 to 3.3 million jobs have been created -- with no support from Republicans.
On Saturday, May first there will be a service honoring workers who have died on the job, and their families. This day is traditionally set aside to honor workers, but it goes unnoticed by most people. During this service we will hear a brief history of Workers Memorial Day, acknowledge the value of the unions and working class of our nation and communities, and pause to remember. To take a worker for granted is to lose the soul of the nation. Come join us in taking a moment of time to learn and remember.
Rev. Dr. Gregory Wilson
