Public Citizen supporters want to take on corporate power, Public Citizen’s “What Sign Should I Bring To Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity” showed, portraying the public’s frustration with the corporate-dominated status quo in Washington. Of the thousands of submissions, Public Citizen chose our fave four to print and distribute tomorrow on the National Mall.  Here are the winners and their prize slogans:

  • “Separation of Corporation and State” (Elizabeth, North Carolina);
  • “We, the People NOT We, the Corporations” (Alan, Colorado);
  • “It’s a Democracy, Not an Auction” (Eric, Washington state); and
  • “Keep Your Government Hands Off My Corporate Overlords!” (Ken, Washington state).


“Sanity is no simple proposition in Washington, D.C., where narrow corporate interests routinely block commonsense policies to strengthen our nation and preserve our planet,” said Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen. “Our contest’s submissions highlight that restoring sanity requires taking on corporate power.”
