Jeff Clements, Author and Free Speech For People Co-Founder, talks about his new book, "Corporations Are Not People" which tells the true story of how some of the largest corporations in the world organized to take over our government and Constitution, culminating in 2010 with the 5-4 Supreme Court decision, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Clements, a lawyer and legal scholar served as Assistant Attorney General and Chief of the Public Protection & Advocacy Bureau in the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office from early 2007 to 2009. In this talk he discusses the little known history of how corporatist Supreme Courts overstepped during previous periods of corporate rule in US history leading to uprisings by the people forcing constitutional amendments much like the current struggle to overturn Citizens United.

After Jeff's talk there was a discussion moderated by Enrique Cerna, co-creator, host, and executive producer of the weekly current affairs program "KCTS 9 Connects". He is a five time Northwest Regional Emmy Award winner with more than 36 years of experience in the Seattle broadcast market.
