The documentary "Who Killed Emmett Till?," a powerful educational piece, focuses on a 14-year-old African-American boy murdered in Mississippi when he reportedly flirted with a white woman. The documentary directed by Ray Metoyer takes a look at the timeline of the murder with first hand interviews from witnesses who were there when Emmett was kidnapped from his family. We see the barn where he was tortured and killed and look back on the murder investigation, where his killers were allowed to walk away without even a slap on the wrist. The murder of Emmett Till became one of the pivotal moments of the Civil Rights Movement because of the tireless efforts of his mother Mamie Till Mobley. The presentation includes discussion facilitated by Till family member and Emmett Till Legacy Foundation founder Deborah Watts. Sponsored by: Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Veterans for Peace (VFP), Womenâs International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), and WAMM.

As in â illegal seizure of power. As in â the corporation has usurped â illegally seized â power from the people. He quotes Thomas Hobbes as saying that a corporation is merely a âchip off the old block of sovereignty.â Grossman, the father of the âno to corporate personhoodâ movement, says the first step in taking back the power is to criminalize the corporation. To that end, he has drafted a four page law â âAn Act to Criminalize Chartered Incorporated Business Enterprises.â âAs of 12:01 a.m. on July 4, 2012, no incorporated business shall exist or operate within the United States and its territories, or with any State or municipality,â the draft law reads. âAs of 12:01 a.m. on July 4, 2012, all existing business corporation charters granted by the United States, and by all States, shall be null and void.â âIf people want to go into business, fine,â Grossman said. âBut this law would strip away 500 years of Constitutional protections and privileges. No more limited liability for shareholders. No more perpetual life. No more Constitutional protections.â Those local, state or federal officials âwho fail to implement and sustain the prohibition â and criminalization â of chartered, incorporated business entities after 12:01 a.m. July 4, 2012, shall promptly be indicted and speedily tried for the crime of villainous usurpation â perfidious, felonious, illegitimate rule exceeding their proper authority â as well as for the crime of dereliction of duty.â In a footnote to the draft law, Grossman writes that âin a corporate state, law, culture, contrived celebration and tradition illegitimately clothe directors and executive officers of chartered incorporated businesses in governing authority.â âThis is usurpation,â he writes. âA corporate state nurtures, enables and expedites such illegitimate governing authority by violence enforced by courts, jails, police and military force and by historians. Less-overtly ferocious institutions â for profit and non profit â routinely reinforce that reality.â RUSSELL MOKHIBER edits Corporate Crime Reporter. --------11 of x-------- Pre-Occupy the ruling class.
