Dozens of people were arrested in civil disobedience protests in cities across the United States Monday during a national day of action for the new Poor People’s Campaign. Thousands of low-wage workers, clergy and community activists participated in sit-ins, marches and rallies, calling on lawmakers to guarantee healthcare and a healthy environment for all. In Washington, D.C., 28 people were arrested in the Capitol Rotunda Monday while protesting the disproportionate impact of disasters such as Hurricane Maria on the poor. In Topeka, Kansas, 16 people were arrested as they demanded Medicaid expansion at the state Capitol building. And in Kentucky, 400 activists were denied entry to the state Capitol Monday while protesting the nation’s first work requirements for Medicaid. Monday’s actions are the fourth week of nonviolent direct action from the new Poor People’s Campaign.
