We the People Rising Up: Rejecting Corporate Control One Community at a Time

Date: Wednesday, June 4, 2014

Time: 7:30 pm

Location: The Shedd Institute 868 High St. Eugene, OR

Fee: Free ($10 suggested donation)

Description:

Everyday people in 200 communities across the United States are beginning to rewrite American constitutional law to elevate the right of local, community self-government above corporate “rights” and powers.

Come listen to the stories of how these communities, spread across eight states including Oregon, are stepping forward to assert their right to say “no” to GMOs, pesticides, fracking, corporate water withdrawal, and harmful energy projects.

This is the beginning of a new civil rights movement forging its way towards state and federal constitutional change that will liberate communities from corporate control in order to protect the rights of people and nature.
