Ward Morehouse 1929-2012
Ward Morehouse, 83, an internationally known human rights and anti-corporate activist, author, publisher, international educator, union activist, housebuilder, lover of dogs and children, died June 30 while swimming laps in a pond near his home in Northampton, Massachusetts.
He had a multifaceted 60-year career that spanned many fields -- activism, writing and publishing, alternative economics, establishing "people's law," and civil disobedience against war -- but were all connected by the thread of his passion for social justice and equality.

Morehouse was internationally known mostly for his work against corporate assaults on human rights
He was one of the organizers of the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal (ICJB) in 1985, shortly after the 1984 Union Carbide chemical spill that leftmore than 22,000 people dead, often called India's Hiroshima. When Dow Chemical bought Union Carbide and did not clean up the lethal chemicals continuing to pollute Bhopal's ground and water,it only confirmed Morehouse's understanding that the core problem was to find a way to exert citizen control over corporations
He was a co-founder in 1994, with the late Richard Grossman, of POCLAD (Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy). Many of Morehouse's essays are included in the standard introductory book for anti-corporate activism, Defying Corporations, Defining Democracy: A Book of History and Strategy . Grossman once described Morehouse as "the most unpretentious person I know. He either keeps his ego in check or he doesn't have one. He truly cares about people and that is his great strength. (Comments about Morehouse by other POCLAD colleagues are on the home page of POCLAD's website.
