The proposal was backed by many Clinton supporters, as well.

Der Wandel kommt

Diese entstehende Bewegung muss sich mit dem gesamten Spektrum der Gewalt auseinandersetzen. Wie Pfarrer John Dear es ausdrückte: „Das bedeutet, Waffengewalt zu beenden – aber auch Rassismus und Masseneinkerkerung, aber auch Hinrichtungen, Drohnenangriffe und Billionen, die für den Krieg ausgegeben werden, und damit auch die laufenden US-Bombenangriffe und Kriege und die Entwicklung und Bedrohung durch Atomwaffen, und unsere tödlich sündige Gier der Konzerne und natürlich die Zerstörung der Umwelt und all der Kreaturen“.
