INSTANT UPDATE: Well, before the ink could even dry on this blog post, Occupy Los Angeles and the LA Times [1] reported that the resolution did in fact pass! Great news for the Move to Amend [2]!!

After months of City Hall’s lawn being peacefully occupied by protesters, and a fairly upsetting eviction thereof, the City of Los Angeles looks to actually be considering some positive action toward the goals of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

We just received a link to this article via email:

Los Angeles Stands Up To The Supreme Court, Looks To Revoke Corporate Personhood – Addicting Info [3]

The Los Angeles city council is preparing to vote on a resolution that would revoke corporate personhood. If the council votes accordingly, Los Angeles would become the biggest city in America to strike a blow against Citizens United. Here is [a link to] the language of the resolution as provided by DailyKos [3].

Our very own Riki Ott, author of Not One Drop [4], has been at the forefront of the Move to Amend [2] the U.S. Constitution toward this very end.

In honor of her tireless work, we’d like to once again share the video that she made to start it all off. Check it out, and stay tuned for the latest on the anti-corporate personhood front!
