March On Washington - Events in Kenosha - Portland's Mayor Blasts Trump - Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers Requests Trump Stay Away -

March On Washington

What day is it ?  We just came back from the States and I have to turn around and go back  early tomorrow for my  three hour eye appointment (finally !).  So, while Mike who is feeling a little better is feeding the cats (another story) here's a quick rundown of events.

 * The March On Washington: 

 ~ From CNN:

"Fifty-seven years to the day after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech, civil rights activists are once more climbing the steps and demanding change.

The National Action Network and the Rev. Al Sharpton organized the "Commitment March: Get Your Knee Off Our Necks" event in response to the death of George Floyd in May at the hands of law enforcement.

The march is meant to be a commemoration of a seminal moment in US history -- one that demanded civil rights and economic opportunity.

On Friday, marchers will call on the Senate to pass police reform legislation named after Floyd, which the House approved in June. They will also call for dismantling systemic racism and for ensuring access to the ballot box, organizers said."
