Peace or Profit: Violence as Commodity Rally/Memorial for Money Out, Voters In!

We are gathering to honor the memory of Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy of non-violence as well as to recognize the 3rd year anniversary of the infamous Citizens United Supreme Court decision. We chose the title, "Peace or Profit" to highlight the fact that we can choose peace, or we can choose to allow runaway corporate profiteering off violence in all its forms: endless wars, weapons, defense contracts, the war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on the earth, the war on workers, the war on homeowners, the war on women and minorities. The corporate world and the military-industrial complex profit greatly from all of these wars and are addicted to violence, which has been turned into a commodity to be traded and sold for the profit of the 1% at the expense of the 99%. Violence, exploitation, and coercion are hallmarks of unbridled capitalism and greed, and corporate "personhood" and money as "speech" are at the core of this systemic sickness that has infected not only our nation but the world.
