Occupy Spokane http://www.kplu.org en Occupy Spokane to host panel for 'Occupy the Courts' day http://www.kplu.org/post/occupy-spokane-host-panel-occupy-courts-day <p>SPOKANE, Wash. &ndash; Occupy Wall Street has officially endorsed &quot;Move to Amend the Constitution&quot; as a primary mission.</p><p>Spokane groups will mobilize tomorrow as part of a nationwide effort called Occupy the Courts. It&rsquo;s a move to urge lawmakers to rethink the Citizens United decision, passed two years ago tomorrow. Concluding that &ldquo;corporations are people,&quot; the Citizens United decision overruled precedents that blocked corporate spending on political campaigns. Now, corporations can support or oppose candidates and contribute freely.</p><p> Thu, 19 Jan 2012 16:58:35 +0000 Paige Browning 3810 at http://www.kplu.org
