CLEVELAND - Local activists unfurled a banner across pedestrian bridges leading into Cleveland on Thursday.
The banners were displayed to protest the Supreme Court decision last year of the Citizens United vs. FEC, which gave corporations the rights of an individual to contribute money to political causes.
Rush-hour drivers on Interstate 90 West may have seen four people on the pedestrian overpass holding a banner that read "End Corporate Rule." This protest was prompted by the Supreme Court decision last year of Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission.
The activist groups believe that this was a wrong court decision and seek an amendment because they contend that constitutional rights only apply to humans, but not corporations.
