Local Communities Dismantling Corporate Rule, part 3 (274)

pm274_640“In 160 communities in nine states, we’ve been passing rights-based ordinances that strip corporations of their constitutional so-called rights; that enshrine the right of a local community to govern itself by community majority; and ban specific activities which are legal but which the community considers harmful.” Community Rights US Program Director & Lead Trainer Paul Cienfuegos notes that the laws they’re passing are illegal: “They’re direct frontal assaults to unjust law, which is how real social change happens,” like the American revolution and anti-slavery movement. He describes two recent laws now being challenged in major lawsuits, saying organizers are positively excited about this opportunity.
