You must protect the right of investors to file shareholder resolutions and block initiatives that would curtail this essential right.

Shareholder need to be heard about the policies and actions of their companies. They help maintain the flow of information and curb the power of ceo's to work against the wishes of those who own the company or at least shares of it.They can also be a force for social justice.

Recent corporate scandals do nothing to suggest that management teams should be free of this restraint.
