Son of Martin Luther King: “We Are Moving Forward on America’s Bumpy But Justified Road to Justice”

The march in Washington is simultaneously intended to denounce the human rights problems in the United States today and to commemorate the Great March of 1963. The organizers, Reverend Al Sharpton’s human rights organization National Action Network, began planning the march after the funeral of George Floyd, the black American who died earlier this year after a white police officer pressed a knee on his neck for minutes, leaving Floyd barely could breathe. The march was also called “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks March” (“Get your knee off our necks”.)

During the day thousands of people flocked to it. It is the largest march in Washington since the start of the corona pandemic, but smaller than originally intended, precisely because of the corona measures in force in the capital. Martin Luhter King’s son, Martin Luther King III, addressed the protesters. “We gather here to testify, to stay vigilant, to remember where we are from and to think carefully where we are going. We are moving forward on America’s bumpy but righteous road to justice.”
