The day before the Reverend Dr. William Barber II spoke at Bethel Lutheran Church in Madison, the Reverend Curtis Gatewood, community organizer with the HKonJ/Moral Monday’s movement in North Carolina, spoke with Eric Schubring and Fightingbob.com founder Ed Garvey on WOJB community radio. Scroll down on the WOJB website to find the recording and give it a listen.
During the interview Reverend Gatewood gives a brief history and overview of the HKonJ coalition that sponsored last years Moral Monday’s protests in North Carolina, and Ed Garvey does well in noting that the Wisconsin Uprising was more of a moment rather than a movement, and tells Reverend Gatewood early on in the interview that he hopes we Wisconsinites will be good students of what’s going on in North Carolina.
So after you’ve listened pass this interview along far and wide. Then get ready to organize in your local community. People are coming together from a moral perspective in Racine and in the Chippewa Valley, and we’re going to need peoples assembly’s in every part of Wisconsin if we’re going to replicate the success they’re having out in North Carolina.
As both Reverend Gatewood and Reverend Barber would likely say: ” forward together not one step back “.
