RSVP’s indicate Saturday’s Moral March will be biggest yet

Moral March on RaleighDespite the forecast of gray winter skies and perhaps some spotty rain, Saturday’s Moral March on Raleigh is looking increasingly as if it will be the biggest one yet. March organizers report that:

  • several thousand people have already committed  to attending on several different websites and Facebook pages — far more than 2013;
  • the number of buses and large vans already reserved for Saturday is nearly three times the number reserved last year; and
  • groups and individuals from at least 57 North Carolina counties and several different states have already committed to attending.

While the majority of marchers for the February HKonJ/Moral March event have always come from central North Carolina, these unprecedented RSVP numbers from such a wide array of locations are seen as a strong indication that event attendance could conceivably approach the once seemingly outlandish goal of 25,000.

Of course,  even half that number would be a remarkable accomplishment. Stay tuned. We’ll have extensive coverage of the march on the main website, here on the Pulse and on our various Twitter feeds in the days to come.

    Woo hoo! I think it’ll be a LOT more than 50. You must be thinking of the Faux News coverage of Teabagger rallies, you know, the ones where they showed footage of the wrong event, in the wrong state, at the wrong time of year. Pity the knuckle-draggers who watch that stuff didn’t even seem to notice..

    The only knuckle dragger’s I saw were leading the march. And when you have a media bought and paid for by the regressive organizations in the state it is easy to squelch any rallies by the other side. Just check with Goodmon over there at WRAL who is a HUGE liberal contributor. Oh, and nice ad=hominem attack there ML/Alan.

    And I see you moderator, I am saving this post to continue reposting. Deleting posts where I use the same language etc. as your intern is quite despicable….but expected.
