Filmed Jan. 20, 2012 in direct response to the 2nd anniversary of the "Citizens United" Supreme Court decision granting corporations and other special interest entities the "right" to spend unlimited and undisclosed money to influence the outcome of elections in the United States of America. Artwork and spectacle produced by The Backbone Campaign, as part of Occupy the Courts, organized by Move to Amend.

The demonstration included speeches by David Cobb, Thom Hartmann, Annabel Park, Shahid Buttar, Jill Stein, Will Rice and many others, as well as a performance by The Backbone Campaign.

After the Amendment artwork, created by Stephon Moody, was placed at the foot of the US Supreme Court steps, Cobb and Move to Amend hosted a strategy session in the Methodist Building next door. Meanwhile, protestors from #OccupyDC at McPherson Square and #OccupyWashingtonDC at Freedom Plaza removed a police barrier and were able to get as far as giant columns that hold up the words "EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW" before US Supreme Court Police Officers pushed them back to the sidewalk. Nine arrests were made.
