Thousands At Mountain Moral Monday

Aug 5, 2013

Thousands of people crowd Pack Square Park for the Mountain Moral Monday protest.

The NAACP and other liberal groups planned the demonstration infront of the Buncombe County Courthouse in Asheville.

The protests went on for 13 weeks in Raleigh at the Legislative Building with nearly 1,000 arrests.

Organizers wanted to point out what they said were the Republican-majority Legislature and governor rolling back progress in education, social and economic equality and assuring all qualified people have the right to vote.

North Carolina NAACP President the Rev. William Barber was at the Asheville protests and said he plans to take the Moral Monday protests to all 13 of North Carolina's congressional districts.
