Moral Monday protesters rally outside Executive Mansion (audio postcard)

About 150 demonstrators marched around the Governor’s mansion and rallied on Halifax Mall this afternoon marking their 18th Moral Monday protest for the year.

Governor Pat McCrory was in Charleston, South Carolina at the time of the demonstration, attending a summit of the Republican Governors Association.

NC NAACP President Rev. William Barber said young and old alike were there to speak out against changes to the state’s election law and cuts to public education.

    Wow, 36 yout’s that could skip school to be a Barbarian. Guess the interest in these hootin’ hollerin’ circus events is waning big time.

    Frances,
    I dont think they would want the mass exodus of people and credibility that would result in….even the NAACP has some sense once you get out of the localities….maybe. You guys want to weigh in?

    The real “Moral” Monday was in Rowan County where 1000 people showed up to support prayer at public meetings.

    The “real’ moral monday was in Rowan? What a joke, just a teabagger distraction to stoke their simpleton base.
