YONKERS: Congressman Jamaal Bowman Among 28 Arrested At Peaceful Voting Rights Protest


WASHINGTON DC: Police arrested 28 nonviolent demonstrators after they held a sit-in protest outside the Capitol.

Among those arrested was progressive New York Congress member Jamaal Bowman.

The activists had been holding a “hunger strike for democracy,” demanding Senate passage of voting rights legislation.

The measure appears doomed after conservative Democrats Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin rejected a change to Senate rules that would have allowed its passage with a simple majority.
