Corporate State Attempts to Choke Off Citizens’ Initiatives

by Tish O’Dell

“Today, when the Ohio legislature tells us we cannot advance laws protecting our communities from fracking, police brutality, low wages, the proliferation of plastic bags and other harms – we must advance those laws anyway. Maybe HB 463 is the moment we’ve been waiting for. A wake-up call for communities that the power to self-govern really lies within us. And when we stop looking to someone else to save us, we will achieve what past people’s movements achieved: our dignity, our rights, and our communities.”
