POCLAD

The Program on Corporations, Law, and Democracy (POCLAD) is an activist collective of a dozen-or-so members, who research the history of corporations in the United States. They are some of the main circulators of the notion that corporate personhood--which gives corporations some of the same legal rights as real human beings—is at the center of the problems regarding corporations. They also publish a newsletter three times a year called By What Authority (ISSN: 524-1106) English for quo warranto, a legal phrase that questions illegitimate exercise of privilege and power, which they claim reflects an unabashed assertion of the right of the sovereign people to govern themselves.
