Backbone Campaign Collaborated with Agit-Pop and MoveOn.org
to Create Flash-mob Action as Way to End Localize This! Artful Activism Camp.
Backbone Campaign has been working to abolish corporate personhood since its inception in 2004. After January's U.S. Supreme Court decision Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, we turned up the heat with an Action-in-a-Box toolkit, freeway bannering, a do-it-yourself Corporate Person costume, a webcast with David Cobb, and most recently Derrik the Corporate Person puppet for Big Oil.
Target Ain't People As the finale of our amazing week of Localize This! Artful Activism camp, last Sunday Backbone worked in collaboration with Agit-Pop to execute a model flash-mob, non-arrestable, high-visibility action with great video production that has since gone viral, likely to reach half a million views by the time you read this email. MoveOn.org provided the funding to pay for this production and has since begun sending it to their members.
IMHO - I think we should boycott Congressional elections in districts where members have not signed on to a bill to Amend the Constitutional to ABOLISH "Corporate Personhood." Corporate personhood is the "gateway" to the gateway issue of public financing of campaigns, otherwise known as Clean Elections or Voter-Owned Elections.
Thanks to all the trainers, dancers, musicians, videographers, and especially Agit-Pop for giving us this excellent way to end Localize This!
In Gratitude and Collaboration,
PO BOX 278
