Nevada City’s Constitution Day Parade

Nevada County Move to Amend Parade

Bubba the Truck

We had a great turn out for our entry in the parade and received a lot of enthusiastic applause from the crowd. Folks read and heard the words to the “Corporations Aren’t People” song. Plus we gave out a lot of Move-to_Amend cards to the crowd.

Obama Calls for Constitutional Amendment to Overturn Citizens United – Move to Amend Response

On Wednesday, President Obama called for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United:

“Over the longer term, I think we need to seriously consider mobilizing a constitutional amendment process to overturn Citizens United (assuming the Supreme Court doesn’t revisit it). Even if the amendment process falls short, it can shine a spotlight of the super-PAC phenomenon and help apply pressure for change.”

The Move to Amend coalition has been fighting Citizens United since Day One, and has been organizing against corporate rule for over a decade; we welcome Obama’s statement and his help ‘shining a spotlight’ on the same position held by the majority of Americans. He just doesn’t go far enough.
