Act Out! [111] – How & Why the UN Fails + A Very Unhappy Birthday to Corporate Personhood | Occupy - Curating Videos
Written by JoAnn Chateau

Act Out! political commentator Eleanor Goldfield puts the focus on… 1) The current state of human rights. 2) Corporate personhood and its historical background. (Warning: Eleanor uses a bit of bad language.)

“This week on Act Out!, a vehemently anti-woman, authoritarian theocratic regime was recently awarded a seat at the UN women’s rights table – so we’re taking the opportunity to really dig into the UN and see whether or not their work for human rights – really works. Next up, May 10th is the anniversary of a landmark legal decision that set a precedent for oligarchical rule in the US. Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap of Move to Amend joins us to talk history and the present fight to end corporate personhood rights.” ~ Eleanor Goldfield
