North Carolina NAACP to continue protests Monday
RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina NAACP plans to hold its fifth protest outside the State Legislative building on Monday, part of something the group calls “Moral Mondays.”
So far more than 150 people have been arrested during the protests including the state chapter’s president Rev. William Barber.
Fifty seven people alone were arrested during the protest on Monday, May 20.
During past protests, hundreds thronged the Senate rotunda and hundreds of more supporters remained outside the General Assembly.
The NAACP’s complaints range from cuts to social programs to the proposed repeal of a law intended to take racial bias out of capital punishment.
