we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all
people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that
we are your allies.
As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the
human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must
protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the
individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that
a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but
corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the
Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is

none of the culpability or responsibility.
They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get
them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.
They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the
