Liberty consists of the distribution of power. Despotism in its concentration.

We have currently, a concentration of power never before seen in this world. We must separate the ability of those in power to influence the outcome of our lives lest we lose all control of our future.

On May 21, 2018, after a morning action at the new McDonald’s headquarters in Chicago, busloads of activists from the​ Poor People’s Campaign and the​ Fight For $15 ​traveled to Springfield, Illinois, and ​occupied ​the Capitol building for over two hours.​


Over the past five years, McDonald’s workers have protested, risked arrest, and gone on strike in more than 400 cities across the country and, according to their organizers, “remain ready to do whatever it takes until we win what we have demanded from Day 1: $15 an hour and the right to join a union.” @UniteThePoor @RevDrBarber @liztheo @wilsonhartgrove @truthdig @fightfor15

WE GOT YOUR BACK! Hundreds of #McDonalds workers gathered in #ChiTown to fight sexual harassment rights, as well as better pay and union rights. Many STRONG women from St. Louis came forward and in tears told their frightening stories on sexual harassment. And in unity, every single time their words failed them, the crowds screamed WE GOT YOUR BACK! 😢💔 #MeToo #FightFor15 #YoureNotAlone

Could #fightfor15 work? I have no idea because economics is not a science it’s a guessing game. What will McDonald’s do if the minimum wage goes to $15? They will use AI (robots for you laymen) instead of hiring people. AI is better for business than people. SOURCE - CGP Grey Humans Need Not Apply 🤖#mentalhealthawareness #equality #robotics #irobot

This was the scene yesterday in front of Governor Bruce Rauner’s office. Workers and faith leaders sat in at the Capitol for over an hour before they were removed by police. We are fighting to end poverty and systemic racism. By vetoing a $15 minimum wage and constantly attacking workers, Rauner has showed he’s not out our side.

We’re getting arrested because it’s not right that more than half of Black workers in America are paid less than $15 an hour & 60% of Latino workers are paid less than $15 an hour. #FightFor15 #twill #PoorPeopleCampaign https://t.co/GWoiPmO2rN
