As an attorney, I am proud to be the originator, and National Action Coordinator, for Move to Amend's (MTA) national day of action OCCUPY THE COURTS (OTC).

As of this morning, OTC actions are being planned for January 20, 2012 - to mark the second anniversary of the Supreme Court's odious Citizens United v. FEC decision - by pro-democracy activists IN FRONT OF (not inside of) U.S. Courthouses in 83 cities across the United States, including in front of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C.!

To find their nearest OTC action, people should go to ( Then, they should contact their local OTC organizer and GET INVOLVED!

One of the main purposes of OTC is to introduce America to MTA's proposed 28th Amendment. Unlike the other amendments that have been introduced into the House, and the Senate, recently, MTA's proposed 28th Amendment clearly, and unequivocally, states: 1) that rights recognized under the Constitution belong to human beings, ONLY (with NO exceptions and NO loopholes); and, 2) that "Money is NOT speech."

To read MTA's proposed amendment, go to ( THIS is what an amendment that is serious about ending corporate personhood, and about getting money out of politics looks like!

As lawyers, we are the last line of defense against attacks on the Constitution. Citizens United v. FEC, and the specious, judicially-created, doctrines of "Corporate Personhood" and "Money is speech" pose direct threats to the American tradition of "small d" democracy and enlightened self-government. I hope that lawyers will turn out, in large numbers, at OCCUPY THE COURTS events on January 20, 2012!
