C.L. Cook, Gorilla Radio
Last month, the United States Supreme Court ruled; 2nd Amendment rights must be applied fully to corporations. Corporations , you may recall, are not faceless, conscienceless business entities, but are "living" entities, entitled under law to many of the rights accorded to humans. so it has been the many long years since the idea to manufacture, whole cloth from the language of the law the power to, if not creat life itrself, then the ability to incorporate within a business or common concern the privileges known to the living. Until recently, those privileges fell short of the Free Speech provisions of the American Constitution; but no more.
Riki Ott is an American marine biologist and fisher, who found herself nose to nose in a fight with one of the world's largest corporations and biggest defiler of the environment, Exxon. Ott was at the center of the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill disaster in Prince William Sound, Alaska, and lessons learned during that fight convinced her; the power of corporations must be curtailed if accountability is was to be brought to their many crimes against humanity and the environment. She is now involved with the Campaign to Legalize Democracy, a part of the Movement to Abolish Corporate Personhood. Riki Ott and birthing the nation's 28th Amendment in the second half.
