RALEIGH, N.C. — The group behind the so-called "Moral Monday" protests has requested a meeting with Gov. Pat McCrory about the elections changes bill.
State NAACP President Rev. William Barber asked McCrory in a letter last Thursday to veto House Bill 589, the elections omnibus that includes voter identification requirements and host of other major changes to state voting and campaign laws.
"We understand you are presently considering the bill, to make what will be a historic decision to sign or veto it," Barber writes in the letter "As you know, we and perhaps 80 percent of North Carolina voters believe it to be one of the most restrictive and regressive attacks on minority, elderly and young people's voting rights seen in this nation since the end of Reconstruction and the implementation of Jim Crow at the turn

Protest packs Asheville
Moral Monday rally draws at least 5,000
ASHEVILLE — The Rev. William J. Barber II brought Moral Monday to the mountains, and the grass-roots political protest turned into one of the largest demonstrations here in recent memory.
Carrying signs, singing songs and cheering for speakers, thousands of protesters rallied downtown Monday for the first Moral Monday outside Raleigh, where Barber, president of the state chapter of the NAACP, has led 13 weeks of protests over Republican-backed legislation.
Asheville police Sgt. Dave Romick estimated well more than 5,000 people attended the rally, which crowded Roger McGuire Green in Pack Square Park in front of City Hall.
Moral Mondays have vacated the NC General Assembly grounds in search of a new venue to whine to and whine they did – or rather sing. Singing, I use that term loosely here, is what took up the bulk of the rally. Perhaps they were lacking in the speaker department. They did manage to dig up a gentleman named who spoke only Spanish and had to have his speech translated. Funny thing, I think I’ve seen him before at another event and then.
