Recap of wednesday, 1.25.2012

The City of Reno addressed the issue of “corporate personhood” and refused to support legislation barring corporations and other entities from donating unlimited funds to political campaigns. The vote was 6 – 1 against supporting the people’s struggle for a free democracy. We would like to thank Councilman Aiazzi for bringing forward the resolution and for being the only member brave enough to vote for it.

We will continue to persuade the City of Reno to join the growing ranks of cities around the nation that have adopted a similar pledge. Click here to view a map showing the municipalities that have passed resolutions and ordinances abolishing Corporate Personhood.

That same day, the Moana Springs occupation site officially ended at 4pm. Many thanks to all those who helped fulfill our pledge of leaving no trace behind.

Several dedicated occupiers decided to occupy the springs without a permit from the City of Reno, asserting that it was a constitutionally protected venue for free-speech. One was subsequently arrested for it.
