Do Corporations Have More Rights Than Global Citizens?

Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese for begin their thought-provoking article with:
We are in the midst of an epic battle between the people of the world and transnational corporations. Wealthy governments and corporations are merging in a global system in which private corporations have absolute power over your life. This is a battle the people can win and when we do it will show that we can defeat corporate power on issue after issue.

See if you agree.
