Welfare Rights Committee protest at Minnesota State Capitol, April 6 (Fight Back! News/Kim DeFranco)

St. Paul, MN - Members of the Twin Cities based Welfare Rights Committee showed up at the Minnesota State Capitol, April 6, picketing the session of the Minnesota House of Representatives. Kim DeFranco of the Welfare Rights Committee said the purpose of the action was to “put poor bashing politicians on notice that low income people will fight them every step of the way.”

“The Minnesota Republicans are trying to beat up on the poor, disabled, elderly and families by pushing the criminal and hateful Health and Human Service bill onto the house floor.” DeFranco added.
