The idea is for tens of thousands of people across the country to stamp messages on our nation’s currency in support of passing a constitutional amendment to get corporations out of the Constitution and money out of politics. As more and more stamped currency spreads, so will the movement to amend the Constitution. Ashley Sanders & Renae Widdison from Move to Amend join Tom Klammer
Tomas Gómez Membreño will be touring Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Kansas with Witness for Peace- Upper Midwest this October, speaking about “Unites States Involvement in Honduras and the Effects on Indigenous Peoples”. Gomez is visiting us from Honduras, where he works for the non-profit Indigenous rights organization COPINH (Civic Council of Popular Indigenous Organizations). COPINH has been working to expose the role of the United States in the coup and its aftermath. Gomez is a member of the Lencan people, an indigenous community in the southwest of Honduras. He has long been an active member of COPINH, using adult education and community radio as tools for mobilizing indigenous communities. Gomez has been part of a vibrant nation-wide network of organizations representing small farmers, women, afro-descendants and members of the LGBTQ community. He’ll speak with Tom as well.
