Thousands of North Carolinians took to the streets of Raleigh Saturday to protest a laundry list of issues advanced by the Republican-controlled legislature.

Marchers spoke out against proposed voter ID legislation, the state’s rejection of Medicaid expansion, steep cuts to unemployment benefits, possible changes in funding for the UNC-system, and last year’s constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
