Below is a very brief introduction to civil law, followed by links to various educational resources we have to offer.
“Pro Se litigation” can be a very powerful & wise way to file a lawsuit. “Pro Se” literally translates “for yourself” or “on your own behalf”. “Litigation” translates “prosecute in court for the purpose of enforcing a right”. Injustices are an everyday occurrence, and “finding & affording an attorney” can be difficult or impossible for low income people especially.
Why Civil Law?
When civilians begin “stacking the facts & building cases” instead of just marching, petitioning, & building visual campaigns, we will begin knocking out injustices left & right. From “busting monopolies” (i.e. the one Monsanto has on Iowa, for instance)to “filing eminent domain on large rental complexes in order to give rental spaces to tenants”—we foresee that the people will “peaceably & legally” incite a great deal of important, logistically-sound change via learning to use due process of law.At a time when “shock & awe media” have most people feeling helpless, frightened, & confused, Wild Willpower PACis focused on compiling useful practical knowledge to help create an informed, effective citizenry. We believe that when criminals (whether civilians or “authorities acting undercolor of law“)know that they may actually be held accountable if they break the law, that white collar crime will go down, & communities will begin to prosper.
