Here is a great video, it’s worth watching all of it but starting at the 3:46 mark is a very powerful statement showing how wide this movement is and will be!
Activists converged on state capitals around the U.S. on Monday May 14 to begin six weeks of non-violent protests calling for new programs to help the millions of Americans who live in poverty, an overhaul of voting rights laws and other social change with the culmination being a massive gathering in DC on the 23rd of June. Efforts, organizing and more will continue until we the people have jobs with decent pay and all the various other things needed that will make this a just and fair country with economic and ecological sustainability!

As Reverend Barber was quoted, “We’re living in an impoverished democracy,” Barber said. “People across the country are standing up against the lie of scarcity. We know that in the richest country in the world, there is no reason for children to go hungry, for the sick to be denied health care and for citizens to have their votes suppressed. Both parties have to be challenged — one for what it does and one for what it doesn’t do.”
