“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 [1].  

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 [2]), 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.”  [3]

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 [3]. See you on Monday!
