We the People Amendment (HJR48) Introduced in 114th Congress

April 29, 2015

(Washington D.C.) - The movement for constitutional reforms that would end what organizers call “corporate rule” has arrived in the chambers of the 114th Congress. This morning, members of the U.S. House of Representatives joined Move to Amend by announcing their sponsorship of the “We the People Amendment,” which clearly and unequivocally states that:

  • Rights recognized under the Constitution belong to human beings only, and not to government-created artificial legal entities such as corporations and limited liability companies; and 
  • Political campaign spending is not a form of speech protected under the First Amendment.

In making the announcement, lead sponsor Rep. Rick Nolan (DFL-Minnesota), said: “It’s time to take the shaping and molding of public policy out of corporate boardrooms, away from the corporate lobbyists, and put it back in city halls – back with county boards and state legislatures – and back in the Congress where it belongs.”

Monsanto Corporation Claims Corporate Personhood Trumps Vermonters’ Right to Require Labeling

March 17, 2015

In May 2014, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed into law H.112 (Act 120), a mandatory GMO-labeling bill, despite well-known opposition from trans-national food corporations. When the law takes effect on July 1, 2016, it will open the pathway for other states to begin enacting their own GMO labeling laws. But corporate Agribusiness companies have sued Vermont, claiming that the law violates their First Amendment right not to speak.
