Occupy Gainesville is about engaging the people of our community in grassroots, participatory democracy. We are about diversity and dialogue.

We stand in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street Movement and the rest of the people peacefully occupying public space across this country and the rest of the world.

This is about collectively awakening to the way we live, and consciously choosing a better way.

This is about transforming the values that are the foundation of our society.

This is about economic, social, and environmental justice, at the local, national, and global level.

We can all envision a more perfect society, and dream of a better world for future generations.

The realization of this dream is what this movement is about. Come join us!

We the People, Not We the Corporations On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal  Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are  persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our  government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions. We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme  Court’s ruling in Citizens United, and move to amend our Constitution  to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not  corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights. The Supreme Court is misguided in principle, and wrong on the law. In a democracy, the people rule. We Move to Amend.

What is Occupy the Courts - Inspired by our friends at Occupy Wall Street, and Dr. Cornel West, Move To Amend is planning bold action to mark the second anniversary of the infamous Citizens United v. FEC decision!

Occupy the Courts will be a one day occupation of Federal courthouses across the country, including the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Friday January 20, 2012.

Move to Amend volunteers across the USA will lead the charge on the judiciary which created — and continues to expand — corporate personhood rights.

Americans across the country are on the march, and they are marching OUR way. They carry signs that say, “Corporations are NOT people! Money is NOT Speech!” And they are chanting those truths at the top of their lungs! The time has come to make these truths evident to the courts.

We the People, Not We the Corporations

On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.

We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.

The Supreme Court is misguided in principle, and wrong on the law. In a democracy, the people rule. We Move to Amend.
