Raleigh 1 of 30 sites for launch of Poor People's Campaign

Massachusetts State

The actor-turned-activist spoke at the Capitol steps Monday afternoon about the problems facing impoverished America as part of the Poor People's Campaign, a six-week series of protests across the country aimed at creating a "moral revival". "People will come together and put their mouths and their bodies on the line to force the nation, the media to have to see and hear the people that are impacted".

"Sit-ins as we go forth, and to just civil disobedience". King was assassinated in April of that year and the movement struggled afterward, but now activists want to realize the movement's lost vision in an America that still faces numerous same systemic problems. The themes cover racism, poverty, the war economy and ecological devastation. This year's national campaign will culminate in a March on Washington as well, scheduled for June 23.

The protestors were with the South Carolina Poor People's Campaign.

But that figure was actually down from 14.8 percent two years earlier. "And these realities hurt children and women and the disabled the most". A living wage. When do we want it?

Monday's rally kicked off 40 days of protest and voter mobilization here in ME and across the country, leading up to a rally in Washington, D.C. next month. Campaign leaders said the protests would cover 35 states. The poor are blamed for their poverty and for their suffering due to their poverty, so much so, that many who need help will not ask for it and are afraid to admit they are struggling.
