Bernie Sanders coming to Miss. for march against Nissan

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and actor Danny Glover are coming to Mississippi to help bring attention to what organizers call poor working conditions at Canton’s Nissan manufacturing plant, according to the Mississippi NAACP.

The “March on Mississippi” is scheduled for March 4 at the Canton Sportsplex, as advertised by the Mississippi Alliance For Fairness at Nissan.

U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson and Sierra Club President Aaron Mair will also attend.

The march focuses on attempts by Nissan workers to unionize and the intimidation they say they’ve faced in response.
