Flash mob: “We won’t give our lives to corporate control”

One of our supporters emailed me this awesome video of an impressively well-choreographed and performed flash mob protest, big band and all. It made my day, and I just had to share. I hope you’ll share it too.

Their tune is a protest song about unlimited corporate spending to influence elections – and it’s played to the melody of “Sixteen Tons,” a classic anthem of worker struggles. Only now, instead of owing our soul to the “company store,” today it seems more like it’s our “company Congress” that’s lost its soul.

To the folks who made this video: Bravo! It’s protests like this that bring life to our movement and inspire us to keep taking action.

Do you have a video, song, image, slogan or other artwork you’ve created to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission? If so, let us know.
