Fighting Corporate Control – by Lauren Regan, Ryan Shapiro, Will Potter
2013 Resistance Ecology Conference
Our state legislative bodies have been co-opted by corporate interests. SLAPP lawsuits, Ag-Gag Bills, and the existence of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) are all evidence of the power that corporations wield over our rights and freedoms, and how they undermine democracy. What can be done? The panelists will discuss current trends in corporate control and how to actively fight back.
