Tienduizenden Amerikanen betogen tegen discriminatie van minderheden bij verkiezingen

Tens of thousands of Americans protest against discrimination …

Tens of thousands of people in Washington and dozens of other U.S. cities on Saturday protested against discrimination in voting. According to protesters, laws in many U.S. states make it harder for blacks, such as blacks, to run in elections. These are the states ruled by former President Trump’s Republicans.

Protesters talk about “racist, anti-democratic” laws that oppress voters. The date for the demonstrations was not chosen arbitrarily: on August 28, 1963, a quarter of a million people gathered in Washington for a major civil rights demonstration. Martin Luther King III, son of a human rights activist, said, “On Saturday we will make history by taking the torch of justice that my father and many others carried.”

In 1965, the US Congress passed a law banning discriminatory election activities. But some states, especially in the South, have made “technical adjustments” in general, which is especially difficult for African Americans who vote for democracy in general. The process has been accelerated by Trump’s claim that he was defeated by massive vote fraud in last November’s presidential election.

Since January, at least 18 states have passed a total of 30 banned election laws, critics insist. For example, it requires you to have a permanent address to register to vote. But some states banned the so-called Go straightVoting (from the car) was popular during the corona epidemic last year.
