In a press release on Monday, the Poor People’s Campaign outlined its plans for a “season of nonviolent direct action” over the next month as the Senate GOP’s obstruction—and Democrats’ refusal to take the steps necessary to break it—threatens to derail much of President Joe Biden’s policy agenda:
· July 12, a massive national call-in to every senator, to shut down the switchboards if necessary.
· July 19, the anniversary of the Women’s Convention at Seneca Falls, nonviolent moral direct action in D.C. led by women from all over the country.
· July 26, in all Senate offices, regardless of party, people in at least 45 states, will engage in nonviolent moral direct action.
· August 2, nonviolent moral direct action focused on the U.S. Senate and led by a mass number of clergy and religious leaders with poor and low-wage workers.

The U.S. military is withdrawing from Afghanistan after twenty years of war. The U.S. spent some $ 2.26 trillion dollars propping up the regimes. There is great sadness and danger in the present situation.
One issue being ignored by our press is that the failure of the Afghan government to establish a viable state was caused in major part by the looting of the country by the Afghan elite along with the US based merchants of military arms sales. They stole over half of all the $ 2.26 trillion to build their lives in Qatar, Doha, Abu Dhabi, and similar areas. See the research in , Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security by Sarah Chayes. (2015). Bribes, bribery, and capitalism ruined the state. Now, it is collapsing. The refugees will suffer, women will suffer, the poor will suffer. And, to a large extent, the suffering was created by corruption.
Now, what should the U.S. do?
The case is similar in Honduras and Guatemala, the refugees are coming to our borders.
Despite its pledges to aid Central America, the Biden administration continues to deny the United States’ role in destabilizing the region.
