Truthdig reports on the final week of the Poor People's Campaign, an effort to relaunch Martin Luther King Jr.’s fight against poverty, war and income inequality.
In the United States—the richest country in human history—the 140 million people who live on or below the poverty line are screaming for justice.
In the fifth week of the movement, police took the photojournalist into custody during a livestream of a protest for jobs and living wages.
This movement has nothing to do with left or right, Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal. It's all about right and wrong.
Civil rights leaders plan 40 days of marches, sit-ins and other peaceful protests to demand better homes, jobs and education for those in poverty.
