As the protests have continued to grow, WFAE’s Ben Bradford documented the latest event.</p><p></p> Tue, 02 Jul 2013 13:45:01 +0000 Ben Bradford 30516 at http://wfae.org 1,200 Turn Out For 'Moral Monday' Protest In Raleigh Moral Monday Protests http://wfae.org/post/moral-monday-protests <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">For the last several Mondays, planned protests have been happening at the North Carolina General Assembly and resulting in hundreds of arrests. These "Moral Monday" demonstrations have brought out thousands of people over the course of the last several weeks, who are protesting policies on many topics, from education, to taxes, and healthcare and more. The coalition of groups coordinating the protests, led by Rev. Dr. William Barber of the NC NAACP have implied that the protests won't stop until changes are made in the legislature. We'll talk about the Moral Monday movement, about the policies that are being challenged, about the number of people voluntarily being arrested in the protests and the chance these demonstrations will make change, when Charlotte Talks.</span></p><p> Tue, 25 Jun 2013 04:00:00 +0000 29998 at http://wfae.org Moral Monday Protests Rise Of 'Moral Monday' Protests Similar To Tea Party http://wfae.org/post/rise-moral-monday-protests-similar-tea-party <p>In the beginning, there were a few diehards, committed to raising awareness of their vision of the perceived injustices being perpetrated by an overbearing government. They believed that speaking up and taking action was the only way to draw attention to the problems they saw.</p><p>Their main weapon was to gain notice, but they needed an outlet to gain the attention. So staging rallies and protests, all under their recognized 1<sup>st</sup> Amendment right to “assembly and petition” their government, was at first small. But as time marched on, so did their numbers and strength.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 17 Jun 2013 14:00:32 +0000 Michael Bitzer 29542 at http://wfae.org Rise Of 'Moral Monday' Protests Similar To Tea Party
