Sec. 1600 Measure H—Corporations are not persons.

We the people of Arcata hold these truths to be self-evident:

Corporations are not people.

Money is not speech.

We support amending the U.S. Constitution to establish that:

1. Corporations are not natural persons, and the rights protected by the Constitution of the United States are the rights of natural persons only.

2. Money is not speech, and the spending of money to influence elections is not protected speech.

The people of the City of Arcata Ordain as follows:

To the full extent legally possible under federal and state law, and with the long term goal of changing any federal or state laws that may oppose this ordinance,

Within the City of Arcata, CA, corporations shall not have the rights of "Persons" or "The People," as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment. Only living, breathing human beings shall have such rights. (Res. 123-30, eff. 2/20/2013, codifying Measure H, adopted by Arcata voters November 6, 2012 and effective December 20, 2012)
