"Every progressive issue is -- at least in part --
a corporate power issue"
The politics of corporate power are INSIDIOUS. The kind of force that works only in the shadows, hides within loopholes and digs its claws into the fabric of our democracy. Our project stands at the intersection of art, technology & social justice to reveal the havoc corporations have wreaked on society.
This abuse of corporate power has gone on for far too long, and now -- we need you to fight with us.
