Martin Luther King's son to lead voting rights march in the US.

In the US, Democrats in the House of Representatives have passed legislation aimed at restoring voting rights, which have been altered by the Supreme Court.

But it now faces an uphill battle in the Senate, where it needs Republican support to pass.

Activists are now planning marches in support of voting rights in several US cities on Saturday, which will be the 58th anniversary of Martin Luther King's historic march on Washington.

Martin Luther King's son, Martin Luther King III, will be leading those marches.
