    1. Powerful movie exposing corporate & big $ control of elections and legislation in America (i.e Citizens United vs. FEC lawsuit, giving corporations “personhood as free speech”). The filmmaker challenged this concept and created an Anti-Monopoly game, to fight ALEC legislation and the Koch Brothers. Move to Amend group advocates signing a petition in support of H.J. Res. 29 to abolish corporate personhood, see http://www.movetoamend.org. They will be at the upcoming Tucson Peace Fair on Feb. 28.
