In its January 21 ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the sharply divided court overturned two key Supreme Court precedents and invalidated longstanding laws governing how elections are financed, sweeping away virtually all restrictions on campaign spending by corporations. The court majority reached this decision on the basis of the supposed constitutional rights of corporations, as persons, to speak and influence elections.

This video footage is from the March to Overrule the Court, a protest march that occurred on February 16, 2010, from the Wisconsin State Capitol Building to the federal courthouse in downtown Madison, Wisconsin.
