California activists protesting money in politics declare victory

 Homeward Street Journal - USA 15 September 2019

A group of activists in Sacramento, California, recently staged 12 days of civil disobedience to protest against the amount of corporate money involved in politics. Protesters from 99Rise walked 480 miles across the American state, from Los Angeles to the state capital, to bring their demands to the doorstep of California’s leaders.

Indeed, 99Rise has claimed a victory as moves have now been made to force political campaigns to declare their major donors. (1093 Words) - By Dan Bacher
