New Internet Commercial by Campaign to End Corporate Personhood
WASHINGTON - Move to Amend, the national coalition to amend the US Constitution and end corporate personhood, has launched the first of a new series of videos to promote their campaign. These short and edgy videos will be released once a week spread over six weeks starting today with "Don't Be The Naked Hulk." Move to Amend believes that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are people entitled to constitutional rights.
“Corporate personhood is not an inconsequential legal technicality. The Supreme Court ruled that a corporation was a ‘legal person’ with 14th Amendment protections before they granted full personhood to African-Americans, immigrants, natives, or women”, states David Cobb, a spokesperson for Move to Amend.

The videos were written by filmmaker Dennis Trainor, Jr., director and producer of American Autumn: an OccuDoc, and comedian Lee Camp. The clips use absurdist humor to draw attention to the ridiculous notion that corporations can claim rights under the Constitution.
Move to Amend’s “We the People Amendment” was introduced in Congress in February by Representative Rick Nolan (MN) and Mark Pocan (WI).
