    1. Delicious local food provided by several restaurants in town, plus live music, even with a sing along “We the people have a message to send, We the people move to amend”…then a lively anti-corporation talk by cartoonist David Fitzsimmons (“Corporations equal sociopaths”, and a story about disapproval from his wife who found a Walmart receipt in his trash can). Then Shana Smith of MovetoAmend.org gave the history of corporations in America, the legal cases & some battle examples in California and why “artificial entities” should not be considered people. Sign the petition to bring this issue to Congress at http://www.movetoamend.org.
