Sunday morning, a march was led to the US Supreme Court steps. Dr. Cornel West climbed on the steps and denounced court decisions that have produced money-based elections that empower corporations. Dr. West was holding a sign that said “Poverty is the Greatest Violence of All.” He was arrested because holding political signs on the Supreme Court steps is illegal.
He remains in prison and is ordered to speak in court at 1 pm to answer questions.
This is the video of him being arrested.
