  Iraqi Constitutional Monarchy
The Iraqi Constitutional Monarchy believes in fair competition among political groups and that free elections should be conducted in an atmosphere of stability.
The Head of State should remain above factional disputes and be a guarantor of the constitution, implementing its precepts and defending the rights of the people in a democratically elected assembly.
An Iraq that is a constitutional monarchy with a presidential-parliamentary type of political regime and a legislature that is selected on the basis outlined offers the best hope for a stable democratic Iraq.

 East European Constitutional Review
This free-floating reform movement was born under the pressure of the same circumstances that imposed massive changes on state authority.
As a result, the “triangle” composed of state, society, and the revolutionary movement was replaced by a new, synthetic force that absorbed the old society and portrayed itself (to itself) as a total, all-encompassing structure of authority.
Today, a movement for change has once again merged with state authority, and the financial-political structures (“the consortium”) that appeared within the reform movement is now germinating within the state.

 Civil Rights Movement
At the war's end, decolonization movements in Africa and Asia and the beginnings of the cold war between the United States and the Soviet Union heightened the rhetoric of freedom, democracy, and self-determination.
During 1964 and 1965, the accelerated momentum of the Civil Rights Movement was fueled by the escalation of organized protest activity in the South, particularly in Mississippi and Alabama, and by the commitment of President Lyndon Johnson to enact strong civil rights legislation.
However, the Southern movement ensured that the issue moved to the top of the president's agenda; the final battleground was Selma, Alabama.

During the Constitutional movement however when one pauses to examine all the different issues relating to that period thoroughly, one can clearly observe women's valuable influence on the movement through their political, social and cultural activities.
The role of the Iranian women in the past one hundred years and especially during the constitutional movement is a highly sensitive issue which has found a distinct place in the contemporary research of the history.
The intellectual and cultural development of the Iranian women during the Constitutional movement was to some extent because of Iran's assumption of a position in the international relations arena from the early years of Qajar dynasty.

 East European Constitutional Review
Under the communist regime, freedom of movement was monitored and curbed by means of the propiska—a required residence permit that restricted an individual’s right to choose his place of residence and to travel within the country.
On March 12, 1996, the Constitutional Court finally began to examine directly the constitutionality of propiska regulations, in particular those applied in the city and oblast of Moscow, in Stavropol Krai, and in the city and oblast of Voronezh.
Constitutional rights and freedoms are guaranteed to citizens regardless of their place of residence and regardless of whether they have a place of permanent or temporary residence.

 [ The New Iraq ]
The Constitutional Monarchy Movement (CMM) website (http://www.iraqcmm.org) states: "The CMM calls for constitutional legitimacy and a return to the situation as it was before being interrupted by the coup of 14 July 1958.
That legitimacy was established by the only permanent constitution approved by the people in a general referendum in Iraq's history." The CMM supports the idea of "equal opportunities" for all Iraqis, regardless of their religion or ethnicity.
He said the constitution should be drafted by a board of clerics, intellectuals, and the judiciary, and that a free and fair referendum should be held to ratify the constitution.

The 2nd “Mashrooteh” from 1288/1909 to 1299/1921 and the coup d'etats of the 3rd of Esfand.
Reducing the modernization and reform movement in Iran to only one of its elements, does not conform to the real dimensions of the movement and the true role played by the parliament during much of its few years of ascendancy.

Stewart said many within the constitutional reform movement believed tax reform would be a prelude to constitutional changes, because if it were to pass, it would make the prospects of the much more massive constitutional reform less frightening to Alabamians.
Stewart said any attempts at constitutional reform would also feel the wrath of Alabama's fl legislators, who he said are angry Riley did not approve felon voting rights legislation in exchange for their endorsement of the tax package.
Stewart said that though the tax plan campaign and the constitutional reform movement have overlapping support circles, some interest groups supporting the tax plan would be against constitutional reform because they oppose further un-earmarking of state funds and the streamlining of state government.

 Balkinization
For this reason, the constitutional claims of social movements tend to succeed or fail to the extent that they are taken up by national political parties.
To put it bluntly, when constitutional claims of social movements are presented before courts, it matters a great deal whether the movement’s representatives have friends in high places, and in particular, on the federal bench.
But as the social movement gains steam, and convinces a larger and larger share of the public that it is making sense, opponents tend to become increasingly anxious, and you see energetic reaction and attempts at backlash.

 Australian Republican Movement - History - The Constitutional Convention Communique
While it is desirable that the advent of the republican government occur simultaneously in the Commonwealth and all States, not all States may wish, or be able, to move to a republic within the timeframe established by the Commonwealth.
The Convention also resolved that the Constitution include a Preamble, noting that the existing Preamble before the Covering Clauses of the Imperial Act which enacted the Australian Constitution (and which is not itself part of our Constitution) would remain intact.
Chapter 3 of the Constitution should state that the Preamble not be used to interpret the other provisions of the Constitution.

 WHY I DO NOT FULLY SUPPORT SOME CONSTITUTIONAL MOVEMENTS by Rob Marlett   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The Constitution and the principals it embodies are under constant attack from within at all levels of government and from all angles.
There are many just causes, but before we jump to endorse them, we must consider exactly what the movement intends to accomplish, what the movement is actually doing, and whether or not the movement can possibly accomplish its goals in the way that it is attempting to.
(The entire movement is based on the theory that the 16th amendment was never ratified - I've not researched it enough to be convinced that it was or wasn't, but for the purpose of this argument, we'll say it wasn't ratified and the taxes are unconstitutional).

Only because a constitutional republic cannot be conferred by the government, cannot be maintained by one party or one group, and certainly cannot be carried on the backs of a few dignitaries and influential elders.
A constitutional republic which does not derive from the conscious realization and voluntary action of the majority of the people is a bogus republic and bogus constitutionalism.

And, that the Constitution and the US government are to be treated as being under the power and authority of "His Lordship's" earthly stewards as put forth in the Bible, and by mandate of the Church.

 Reformation for the sake of Reformation
The ideology of none of the previous movements such as the constitutional movement, the oil nationalization movement and other various movements before the revolution was not directly based on reformation and freedom.
During the constitutional revolution the masses did not revolt directly and explicitly for the sake of freedom, nor did they have the theoretical bases of the establishment of a free society in mind.
If during the constitutional revolution, people were told that with the abolition of despotism, freedom would automatically be established, during the oil nationalization movement they were told that if the oil industry would be nationalized, freedom would automatically pervade.

What matters is “the movement”;, which he states is given various names—the anti-globalisation movement, the alternative globalisation movement, the alternative world movement, and so on.
Fundamentally for his own political purposes, it means that he can equate all the protests and social movements that have developed since 1999 with the very political tendencies whose function is to prevent them developing in a consciously anti-capitalist and socialist direction.
Callinicos knows full well that far from spurning such overtures, most of the leaders of “the movement”; he seeks to glorify have been bought and paid for—and that “moral” and “intellectual” bankruptcy does not count for much when he who pays the piper can still call the tune.

The Constitution was born from the Declaration of Independence, after Americans had enough of the usurpation and abuse of power, from the government of the day, and as Jefferson quoted, "From time to time, the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots".
This Constitution was the culmination of efforts, by those Patriots, to forever bind their New American government within the boundaries of rule of law, the authority of the people to men and women who were supposed to have conscience, while given the authority to govern in this country.
It is an accepted practice rooted in free speech, symbolic speech, petition for redress of grievance, intended to influence the judge to rule in the favor of the individual, who is forced to rely on the court, to have their rights upheld in court.
