Arrests have again been made in the ongoing protests from “Poor People’s Campaign” activists outside the state’s Capitol, the Associated Press reports. The protest was held just blocks from where President Donald Trump is scheduled to speak today, in similar fashion to the group’s previous demonstrations. Police did not immediately release the number of individuals arrested. Demonstrators lay across a roadway to call for gun control, changes to the military system and other social justice measures. Twenty-one people with the same group were arrested last week in Nashville.
