792 words - 3 pages

Anti-corporations and anti-logo groups and individuals are all around us and they all have one goal to free the general public from the curtains that big corporations put in front of us in order to take our money. But have they had any success. People in these groups would argue yes and say that just us knowing about these groups is a success and the first steep in bringing the corporations down.
