At least thirty people were arrested by the authorities in the United States while protesting in the support of the "Build Back Better" plan.

The protesters arrested at the United States Capital city, Washington DC have been accused of Civil Disobedience. The Protesters demanded Biden Administration and US Congress pass the "Build Back Better" Plan.

The plan is said to cover a large part of President Biden's economic agenda. Although the Democrats seek to pass the bill in the Senate using reconciliation rules to avoid the filibuster, some of the right-wing Democrat Senators could present a hurdle in the passing of the bill.

Senate Democrats agreed last minute on Wednesday to drop paid family leave and medical leave, two cornerstone positions from the 2020 election campaign of President Biden, while key policies to address climate change may also be on the chopping block amid negotiations with the two moderate senators. 

The two Democratic Senators Joe Manchin from West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema from Arizona became the biggest hurdle within their party had been the biggest hurdle within the Democrat party in passing the bill.
