Today I received the following email from Adbusters that asks to vote among the most ‘dirty,criminal, hated’ multinational corporations…

Not an easy decision.

At least if you know what is hiding behind those logos. But their power is big and their strategy clever enough that doesn’t allow people to be aware of their actions. They often hide well behind other smaller brands that seem innocent and harmless. That’s how these ‘monsters‘ as I like to call them, gain great amounts of money.

And of course capitalism feeds them with increasing power, which is more than some governments have  and it is even more than enough to rule the world.

So my question is… how WE, people can fight these monsters and go against their power?

”Hey wild one,

The next issue of Adbusters, hitting newsstands worldwide in a couple of weeks, is ourCORPO issue. It asks this one profound question: in the age of Citizens United, can civil society — we, the people — still work up some leverage over corporate power?

We thought the first round of this epic struggle could be a global vote on the dirty dozen most hated, most criminal, corporations in the world … it’s up right now … Monsanto? ExxonMobil? Walmart? GM? Pfizer or Philip Morris???

Go to killcap.org and cast your lot!

Once the votes are tallied, we’re going to blitz all the networks we have, and instigate the process of revoking this corporation’s charter. Imagine if we took down one of these behemoths. What a boon it would be to a slumbering subversion. It could be the spark that at long last ignites the beginnings of a new post-corporate age.

Help fire-up the Corporate Charter Revocation movement and sentence the #1 criminal corporation in the world to death.

For the wild,
Team Adbusters”
