Rev. Jesse Jackson and 38 others were arrested Monday for refusing to leave Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s office in Phoenix, Arizona.

Jackson and Rev. William Barber, prominent civil rights leaders, urged activists to fight for voting rights and an end to the filibuster, according to the Independent.

The article goes on to state the following:

Hundreds of activists marched a mile to Sinema’s office chanting “end the filibuster now.” They said removing the filibuster would allow Democratic senators to pass voting-rights laws and raise the federal minimum wage, the outlet reported.

Jackson said the country is in a “civilizational crisis” with “battle lines drawn,” according to the Independent. “The power’s in you, the people,” he said.

“I taught kids for 25 years that this is what you have to do to change things, and now it’s time to step up,” said Barry Smith, a 59-year-old retired school teacher, as he was preparing to be arrested. “We’re supposed to be a democracy, so having a minority running the Senate is just so infuriating.”

According to the Independent, 39 people were arrested and charged with trespassing.

Sinema along with some moderate Democrats have spoken out against changing the filibuster. “The filibuster compels moderation and helps protect the country from wild swings between opposing policy poles,” Sinema wrote in a Washington Post article.

Photojournalist David Wallace tweeted Monday, “Rev. Jesse Jackson, 79, who has Parkinson’s diagnosis is marching in heat & humidity to @SenatorSinema office to end the filibuster & demand voter & workers rights legislation.”

Reporter Brahm Resnik tweeted, “NOW Revs Jesse Jackson & William Barber will be arrested and released by Phoenix police in protest outside ⁦@SenatorSinema⁩’s Camelback Rd office, per Jackson assistant.”

  1. They should all be put to death immediately for insurrection. That’s what we call these days, right Nanzi???

  2. Jessie Jackson should also be charged with the murder of Martin Luther King Jr along with a few others🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

  3. Thank you to the few moderate Democrats there are left. And for having the common sense to leave our constitution and the declaration of independence alone. Our forefathers have the common sense to think about what other countries done and failed and what worked. God bless our country.

  4. I get a kick out of that Barry Smith’s comment about the minority running the Senate!! Uhhhh, what happened over the past four years? Nothing but obstruction. Our system has survived for 245 years because we have checks and balances!!

  5. Glad they were arrested, Jesse Jackson is a fraud and can’t be trusted! The only thing that is preventing Democrats to get their way in so many stupid laws is the filibuster. They just want to destroy our country, open your eyes America!🇺🇸❤️
