Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not that I know of - which doesn't necessarily mean they don't exist.

It seems to me that Greenpeace, FOE, etc, tend to campaign on very specific issues, and not so much on general corporate governance - which is unfortunate, because like trying to use stick-on plasters to patch up brain damage.

There are huge practical issues involved with killing a corporation, not least of which is deciding what to do with the employees and the assets. So I think a practical death penalty would apply almost exclusively to upper management and shareholders, perhaps replacing them with worker-owned co-ops - if only because it's hard to imagine anything that would make corporate heads explode more than giving a corporation to its employees.

But most of all I like the campaign idea, as a way of shifting the Overton Window. It's a standard complaint that the left doesn't have any good narratives or memes to promote - so let's change that.
