6.11.13 … Moral Monday: This picture should make the NC powers that be think again …

Moral Monday, NC politics, NC General Assembly protests, CharlotteObserver.com, kudos, civil disobedience, picture worth a thousand words:  This picture should make the NC Republicans think seriously about their base.  “Religious leaders from around the state led the rally that resulted in nearly 60 arrests.”  These are not extremists … these are mainstream North Carolinians.  This is grandma!

RALEIGH Despite tornado warnings across the state, several thousand demonstrators gathered Monday under rainy skies to continue the weekly protests of the new policies and laws coming out of the General Assembly.

This week, religious leaders from around the state led the rally that resulted in nearly 60 arrests. A reporter with the Observer, who was interviewing demonstrators, was among those detained on Monday.

But many who were arrested were clergy.

“We’re here to stand on the side of the poor, the marginalized, the oppressed,” said Jason Williams, a clergyman from Charlotte who was not among those arrested.
