  • Demonstrators join hands during a rally in Charleston West Virginia U.S

The momentum of successive weeks will then culminate in a mass rally of solidarity in Washington, D.C. on June 23.

Eleven protesters were issued criminal citations Monday when they blocked traffic in front of the State House in Annapolis, an orchestrated act of civil disobedience that is part of the Maryland Poor People's Campaign. "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 healthcare and for citizens to have their votes suppressed".

One woman, confined to a wheelchair, spoke of the discrimination faced by the disabled and another, who grew up as the child of an imprisoned parent, talked about the challenges of "systematic poverty" and justice reform. Barber is the founder of the Moral Monday movement, a coalition of faith leaders and activists who routinely protested poverty and discrimination in Raleigh, North Carolina. "Coretta Scott King said that violence is not just what happened to her husband when he was shot, but also what happens when people are denied the necessities they need to live", said Savina Martin, co-chair of the Massachusetts Poor People's Campaign, in a statement. The Michigan Poor People's Campaign launched on Monday at the state Capitol. It says the two were among protesters arrested after standing in the middle of a street.

They sang songs, carried signs and listened to speakers. "We won't be silent anymore!"
