Democracy Awakens in U.S. Capitol

The movements Democracy Awakening and Democracy Spring have been busy this past week in our country’s capitol. A historic 1,400 people have been arrested between the two groups as they stood their ground and raised their voices against what ails our Union.

The groups have protested peacefully and are being jailed to bring their, and a vast majority of the country’s, goals into focus. Some of the two movements demands are as follows:

Democracy Spring

 www.democracyspring.org

Restores the protections against voting discrimination and updates the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

The bill seeks to streamline the voting process and empower the citizens.

Overturns Citizens United and gets corporate money out of our politics.

 

  • PASS THE GOVERNMENT BY THE PEOPLE & FAIR ELECTIONS NOW ACTS (H.R. 20 AND S. 1538)

Encourages small dollar contributions from everyday Americans by publicly matching the funds, but only available to candidates who refuse corporate money.

CONFIRM A SUPREME COURT NOMINEE WHO WILL ENSURE POLITICAL EQUALITY BY VOTING TO PROTECT VOTING RIGHTS AND END THE CORRUPTION OF BIG MONEY IN POLITICS.

  1. DNC I’m ashamed that I have become a democrat only to have it rigged to favor Hillary! What happen to fairness and the common good! You took Bernie In To the Democratic Party only to use and abuse him! And won’t support him as you do her! Shame shame on you and when all is said and done you will no longer be a viable party! You deserve the destruction of your party! Shameful and disgusting!
    If you think this is over you are sadly mistaken!
