Poor people say: no more hate!


St. Paul, MN, January 4, 2011. For the 18th consecutive year the Welfare Rights Committee demonstrated at the State Capitol on the opening day for the legislature. They founded the Minnesota Coalition for a People’s Bailout that includes a number of social issue activist groups. It was a bright, brisk, 4 degree F day. Students from the Student Association for the Advancement of Children as People added the eloquence only a child can deliver. After the speeches, they marched into the capitol rotunda and up the marble stairs by both legislative chambers as the legislature formed for this session.
