Bernie Sanders In Mississippi to March against Donald Trump's hidden agenda

Bernie Sanders is currently in Mississippi to fight against Donald Trump's agenda. According to the Nation, He’ll be joining local autoworkers, actor Danny Glover, and NAACP President Cornell William Brooks in the “March on Mississippi,” which seeks to highlight abuses of worker rights and civil rights at the local Nissan Motor Company vehicle assembly facility. Organizers of the march expect it to be one of the largest Mississippi has seen in years.

The mission is an urgent one, as it will highlight unsafe working conditions and mistreatment of workers at the plant where roughly 80 percent of the 5,000 workers are African-Americans. The march will call on Nissan to stop resisting union organizing efforts and allow a free and fair vote on whether workers can exercise their right to organize and collectively bargain.

“I am proud to join in fighting to give workers at Nissan’s Canton, Mississippi, plant the justice, dignity and the right to join a union that they deserve,” says Sanders, whose 2016 presidential bid has made him one of the most identifiable champions of labor rights in the United States. “Nissan has union representation at 42 out of its 45 plants around the world. The American South should not be treated differently.”
