Our elected officials are supposed to serve We the People, but too often powerful corporate interests are able to hijack the legislative process. They don’t like whistleblowers or activists exposing horrible conditions in their factory farms. They don’t like environmentalist protesting their pipelines. And lawmakers, instead of upholding our free speech rights, pass legislation criminalizing or chilling speech these corporations don’t like.
But it works both ways. A number of corporations are also willing to profit from and facilitate government human rights abuses. From facial recognition technology that’s used to track activists to private prisons, they are willing to help violate our civil liberties if the price is right.
We don’t think this is right. That’s why we work to expose these corporate attacks on civil liberties.
