“Rein them in” ralliers will watch for special session hijinks on Monday

They’re baaaack!!! Another month, another mysterious special session from the right-wingers running the General Assembly.

Despite “assurances” that nothing of substance will take place, state lawmakers will return yet again to Raleigh next Monday April 23rd at noon for a special legislative session. As you will recall, it was during such a session in January that lawmakers adjourned themselves and then immediately reconvened in the middle of the night to take revenge on the N.C. Association of Educators.  

Happily, as with the last special session in February (the one in which Speaker Tillis’ people selectively enforced a vague rule to remove peaceful and silent demonstrators from a public space), demonstrators will be on hand to voice their opposition to the General Assembly’s reactionary policies and to make sure that nothing untoward takes place without a witness. 

If you can, please take a few minutes out of your day on Monday to join with caring and thoughtful people to help hold the out-of-control General Assembly accountable at a “Rein them in Rally.” 

When: Monday, April 23 at 11:00 A.M.

Where: In front of the General Assembly building on Jones Street in Raleigh.

For more information and to RSVP, please visit the rally website. See you on Monday!

    Do not forget to watch Bev and the awful things she is doing in her last days. Reminder, Bev knew about the events in the Democratic Party for several months and did nothing. What other things does she know and is supporting a cover-up. So much for truth, honor and following the law and fighting for the employee making $20,000.00 per year. Are you watching the practices of the Democrat Party that does not support their claims, such as fighting for the middle class. I think the leadership fought for the person making over $100,000.00 instead of the little guy or the victim.

    politicians are the only ones “out of control”…Check out the elite deviance among those who ‘run’ NC hospitals these days. I wonder if Canadian and UK hospital administrators make as much money??
