According to the North Carolina NAACP’s estimates, somewhere between 80,000 to 100,000 people marched in Raleigh on Saturday in protest of policies passed last year by a GOP controlled legislature and Republican Governor Pat McCrory. From the Al Jazeera America report:
” Thousands of people opposing Republican policies in North Carolina marched in Raleigh on Saturday, saying they won’t be silenced in 2014 and vowing to challenge what they call an extreme agenda within the legislature, in the court and at the ballot box.
It will be interesting to see what kind of success the HKonJ coalition will have at the ballot box in November. Too bad there’s nothing like it going on in Wisconsin.
