A Moral Resurrection With Reverend William Barber
Dr. Reverend William Barber, co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign, initiated by Dr. Martin Luther King, talks about the Selma-to-Montgomery Style, 4-Day march in Texas to Challenge Attacks on the Right to Vote, which consists of a 27 mile trek from Georgetown to Austin, TX.
The event is part of the organization’s national Moral Monday direct actions which are designed to demand an end to the filibuster, passage of the full For the People Act, and complete restoration of the Voting Rights Act. The group is also urging passage of a minimum living wage of $15 per hour. The Poor People’s campaign and partners will begin the Texas events with meetings with Democratic and Republican legislators on June 26, before engaging in a 27-mile trek from Georgetown to Austin, Texas, July 27 through July 30.
As Democratic legislators in Texas fled the state in search of federal assistance pushing back on anti-voting measures there, the Rev. Liz Theoharis and the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II are organizing a march involving members of the Poor People’s Campaign, including clergy, religious and moral leaders, who earlier called for a season of nonviolent direct action in support of voting rights, a $15 minimum wage, and an end to the filibuster.
“It is a mistake to think that racism only impacts Black people,” said the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II. “It impacts us all and the collective impact necessitates a collective response.”
Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II (@RevDrBarber) is the president of Repairers of the Breach, a co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign and the author of “We Are Called to Be a Movement.”

Julian Assange's Fiancée Blasts Media Silence & Political Cowardice
Please support Julian Assange's Case https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/assangeappeal/ Human Rights lawyer and Julian Assange's fiancée Stella Moris delivers an urgent update about what's next for the Wikileaks founder. In the process, she destroys the legal case against Julian, points out that the star witness is a diagnosed sociopath & convicted pedophile, and argues why freedom of press has already been harmed by the treatment of Assange. Of course, it will only get worse unless and until he is finally free. The United Kingdom’s High Court has granted the Biden administration the right to appeal a lower court’s ruling which blocked the extradition of Julian Assange to the United States.
#RIP Mike Gravel W/ Dan Ellsberg & Gravel's Daughter
Mike Gravel, the Alaska Senator and two-time presidential candidate, died on Saturday at 91. Dan Ellsberg, the former defense analyst who leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971, eulogizes Mike Gravel, the late Alaska senator, who entered the classified documents into the Congressional Record. Ellsberg is joined by Lynne Mosier, Gravel's daughter. Both praise his moral courage and urge others to honor his memory by challenging political cowardice. Gravel's daughter Lynne Mosier shares her memories, talks about what was important to her father and calls out The New York Times for disrespecting him in an obit written by someone who died in 2018. Ellsberg warns, "we humans won't get through this nuclear era, this era of climate change without a lot more moral courage of the kind that is extremely rare and that Mike Ravel showed."
