Dr. Barber’s press conference about lockout at state Capitol


Video of Rev. Dr. William Barber’s press conference on the steps of the Kentucky state capitol on Wednesday, June 13. There is a statement by one of the tri-leaders of the KY PPC at about 11 minutes in, followed by Dr. Barber at about 14 minutes in. This is in answer to the Poor People’s Campaign being locked out of the capitol building twice (first time, second time). After the press conference, the clergy who were present took a Bible up the steps and tried to get in to present it to the Governor, but they were blocked from entering by state troopers. They wound up leaving the Bible on the threshold to the Capitol.

Thanks to the KY Poor People’s Campaign for the video stream.
