Rev. Jesse Jackson: Confirming Sessions as Attorney General Would Stick a Knife Through Martin Luther King‘s Work

1 February 2017

On Tuesday, Senate Democrats managed to delay a vote on Jeff Sessions’s nomination for attorney general. The move comes amid continued protest against Jeff Sessions over his history of opposing the Voting Rights Act and his history of making racist comments. On Monday, about 10 members of the NAACP, including President Cornell William Brooks, were arrested at a sit-in at Sessions’s office in Mobile, Alabama. It was the second NAACP sit-in against Sessions’s confirmation where Brooks and others were arrested. For more, we speak with Reverend Jesse Jackson, founder and president of Rainbow/PUSH and a Democratic presidential candidate in 1984 and 1988.

From Facebook, by the organisers of the first Women’s March against Trump in Amsterdam, on 21 January 2017:

International Women’s Day [8 March] and upcoming Netherlands elections [15 March] fuel us to meet again, in solidarity, to show our numbers and support each others’ actions. We stand for the end of discrimination, equal rights for all humans and we value each other’s diversity and passions to create a world with more commpassion.

More information coming soon – save the date.
