Next Nevada County Move to Amend Meeting

All natural persons are welcome

The next Nevada County Move to Amend meeting is:

Tue. July 22nd at 5:30 pm.

Tomes Books 671 Maltman Dr. Grass Valley – next to Sierra Mtn. Coffee Roasters

We will plan our Nevada County Fair Booth.

2014 is an election year so we’ll hand out elected officials contact info, so folks can ask them were they stand on corporate person-hood and money as speech.

We still need to decide on a system for making decisions via email outside of our monthly meetings.

We’ll  review contacts that we’ve made to build our coalition.

We’ll also do more money stamping!

Stamped 1 dollar bill

Plus whatever anyone who comes wants to discuss.

 

 

 

I hope you can join us, Charly

The crowd loved our message! We reached out to the general public and they loved it.

The crowd was even more supportive than at the last parade. The momentum building!

Banner Grange supports the Amendment!

On May 17th the Banner Grange unanimously voted to adopt a resolution calling for an amendment to the US Constitution to end corporate person-hood and to end money as political speech.

Now that the Banner Grange has adopted the resolution it can (and will) be proposed to the California Grange at their next convention.

the Banner Grange Seed Swap!

It was the best seed swap the grange has had!

A lot of people sign our petition and donated

I’m sure the Grange will do another swap next year.

Toxic Trade Agreements, Corporate Globalization, and the Movement for Global Justice

A Presentation and Conversation with Emanuel Sferios and Sharon Delgado

6:30 to 8 p.m, December 3

Tomes Bookstore, 671 Maltmann, Grass Valley

 

December 3 is the Global Day of Action against Toxic Trade Agreements.  There will be actions in countries around the world, including a Sacramento Action planned by organizers from Nevada County.  That evening at 6:30, Sharon Delgado and Emanuel Sferios will speak at Tomes Bookstore on “Toxic Trade Agreements, Corporate Globalization, and the Movement for Global Justice.”  Tomes is at 671 Maltmann, in Grass Valley.

 

People working on various peace, justice, and environmental issues need to know how global trade rules impact their areas of concern.  This introductory presentation and conversation is geared toward people who want to better understand toxic trade agreements such as the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the larger project of global corporate rule, and peoples’ movements to transform the global system through participatory democracy.

 

Supreme Court rulings such as Citizens United grant and extend civil rights to corporations and allow them to dominate culture, economics and government in the United States.  The World Trade Organization and so-called “free trade agreements” such as NAFTA and the proposed TPP extend the power of corporations on a transnational and global scale.  They allow corporations to write the rules for governments to follow, not just about trade but in matters of domestic law.

 

Emanuel Sferios and Sharon Delgado have been involved with issues of corporate globalization and with the movement for global justice for many years.  They will provide an overview of the ideology and rationale for the corporate takeover of democracy, show whom it benefits, and give examples of how it harms individuals, the human and earth community, and future generations.  They will explain how the TPP constitutes a “corporate coup” by extending corporate authority over every area of life, and about the growing movement to oppose fast track and to “flush the TPP.”

 

This is an initial presentation and conversation, designed to get us talking about what we might want to do locally to highlight this issue and link it to the other work we are doing.  It is being sponsored by Nevada County Move to Amend.  For more information call 265-5976.

 

The David Cobb event was fantastic

First of all the Banner Grange folks were wonderful.

The hall was great (except the one light we needed was out)

We drew a big crowd, over 150 and received generous donations.

Many new faces. Everyone was energized by David’s presentation.
