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

Marchers spoke out against school vouchers, low wages for teachers, the state’s voter suppression law, a rejection of Medicaid expansion, as well as cuts to unemployment benefits.
