The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a shadow organization, a corrupt collection of corporations that's had its hand in everything from the Great Recession to our failure to address climate change.
Now Chamber members like Walmart are trying to buy the November elections – and if Google wants to keep our business, it needs to cut ties with the organization threatening our democracy.
With plans to spend up to $100 million dollars influencing who gets into office this fall, this organization's meddling is set to have a disastrous effect on our economy, our environment and our everyday lives.
But we have the power to change that.
Over the past five years, more and more companies have been leaving the COC over its opposition to climate legislation, its widespread corruption, and its backing for anti-Internet proposals like SOPA and PIPA. We've already gotten Apple, Nike and Yahoo to leave – now let's get Google to leave, too.
The Chamber's corporate backers like the power the organization gives them – but they won't like being associated with buying elections, violating our rights and destroying the environment. Let Google know how much it stands to lose by staying – tell CEO Larry Page to pull Google from the Chamber of Commerce now!
MESSAGE TO LARRY PAGE: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a threat to our democracy. We urge you to end your membership now, before we leave your company for one that has.
