Hi Progressives, If you are available next Wednesday during the day, please show your support for Move to Amend at the LA City Council next Wednesday. The message below is from Mary Beth Fielder, MTA-LA Co-chair. - Sylvia Dear MOVE TO AMEND LA supporter: Things are moving fast and we need your help.   At 2 PM next Wednesday, November 2, 2011, a resolution is coming before the Intergovernmental Relations Committee of the LA City Council.  The resolution was introduced by City Council President Garcetti and Bill Rosendahl and calls for overturning the Citizen's United decision and revoking Corporate first amendment rights.    Move To Amend LA  would like to see the City Council pass a stronger resolution which calls for an end to all corporate constitutional rights and also clearly establishes that money is not the same as free speech, and therefore regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.     We've been in touch with the office of CP Richard Alarcon who is heading the Intergovernmental Committee who has urged us to get as many supporters as we can to come to this meeting and speak in favor of a stronger resolution.    So here's our ask!  Is it possible for you to attend and/or to actively advocate for others to do the same?   If we could pass a version of the stronger resolution, we would be the first major city to do so.  This would be widely publicized and make a real impact on our effort to overturn all corporate constitutional rights.   The resolution will be in Intergovernmental Relations Committee next Wednesday, November 2nd at 2:00 PM The Committee is held in room 1060 of Los Angeles City Hall.   We will be meeting as a group at 1:30 PM  outside the office to discuss strategy.   The meeting will start right on time so please don't be late!   We can arrange parking if you email us your name, car make, model & license number by 3 PM on Tuesday, November 1st. Parking will be at the City Hall East garage.   Please email us at [address removed]  to arrange parking and to RSVP.  Put RSVP CITY COUNCIL HEARING in the subject line.   Our goal is to have at least 50 people. Thanks so much! Sincerely, Mary Beth Fielder  Los Angeles Move To Amend Co-chair
