A resolution has been circulating in the state of NY for the last 18 months asking for an "amendment to the Constitution to provide that corporations are not entitled to the entirety of protection or 'rights' of natural persons."
Many town and city councils in our vicinity have already passed the resolution, among them New York City, Mount Vernon, Yonkers, Mount Kisco and Peekskill.
Attached you find the text of the resolution. Read it and you will see that the resolution calls for taking away the right to political speech from corporations and non-profit corporations. This would mean the end of free speech for tea party and liberty groups.
Unions, not being corporations but organizations, would retain their right to political speech.
Apparently, this movement to reverse Citizens United is very well organized and it seems that MoveOn.org is behind it.
The Westchester County Tea Party is forming a committee to fight against the resolution by informing and educating the public, bringing it to the attention of our towns and by protesting against the denial of free speech for those who are not in the business of bankrolling Democrats.
There is a lot of work involved and we need help! So far we have four people on the committee. We need more - people who are willing to help with contacting municipalities, attending council meetings and sending out press releases.
The committee will meet for the first time on Friday evening, probably in Mount Vernon or Eastchester, at 7:30pm. Please respond to me if you are interested in attending.
