Why does it seem like corporations have more rights in my community than I do?
Why does Concord license and permit corporations to harm my community?
Why does the State legislature in Concord routinely make laws that protect corporate projects, when those projects hurt people and harm communities? Isn’t it part of the State’s responsibility to protect people?
The New Hampshire Community Rights Workshops illustrate how the system of government that we have today was created. We take a look at the history of local self-government in New Hampshire, as well as exposing how the legal system has been thwarted to favor protections for commerce and industry above the rights of the people.
We’ll explore some times throughout our state history when communities pushed back against oppressive structures to reclaim local authority; and learn more about the latest efforts to assert community rights.
In conclusion, we look at the goal of creating a New Hampshire constitution that recognizes the rights of people, communities, and nature, by securing our inalienable right to local self-government free of corporate and state interference.
