Protesters gather Friday to oppose corporations (w/video)

May 10, 2013 

Protesters waved brightly colored signs along Curtis Road near the highway Friday morning as part of a protest against a recent Supreme Court ruling that tossed out restrictions on political campaign spending by corporations.

The demonstrators were participating in the nationwide “Day of Action Against Corporate Personhood” touted by the Move to Amend group online.

Carl Madison of Boise was among those holding signs and waving to cars during the morning rush hour.

Madison said that he would support a constitutional amendment that would limit the rights and influence of major corporations.
