Corporations know that this case is precedent-setting, and so corporations like Dole Foods are filing briefs in support of Shell to protect their own interests and make sure they can't be held accountable for human rights abuses abroad either.

Who has submitted amicus briefings in the Shell v. Kiobel court case?
An extensive list of corporations have filed pro-Shell amicus briefs to the Supreme Court. This includes Monsanto, Chevron, BP, Rio Tinto, Dow Chemical, Ford, pharmaceutical giant Glaxosmith Kline, Proctor and Gamble, Honeywell, ConocoPhillips, IBM, General Electric. It also includes right wing think tank the Cato Institute, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Oh, Zee K, haven't you heard? Corporations are now 'people' too under the law.

Some of the other corporations Nancy listed that have filed pro-Shell amicus briefs are vulnerable to charges under the Alien Torts Statute, too, which is why they've jumped on board. I'd love to see the US Chamber of Commerce's brief.

Oh, you bet I signed!

Yes the corporations and robber barons want to make you their one use and throw away item. People mean nothing to them unless they have money power and influence as seen int the present political debacle going on now. It is now or never and it will not change unless the people make it change and make sure that is the same non government that the last four years provided
