RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) — A group from the Port City made their way to Raleigh on Monday to participate in the latest Moral Monday protest.

More than 100 people from New Hanover County made their way to Raleigh Monday to participate in the eighth Moral Monday protest. Teachers, workers, clergy members and students made the trip to ensure their voices were heard.

“I see all those working accomplishments that we made as a state disappearing. It took many years to get it together and put it together and it takes moments it seems for it to disappear,” Sandy Younce said.

Younce has worked in public education for nearly 40 years. He says public education is an issue that needs serious attention in our state.

“I think democracy is built upon public education and sharing knowledge,” Younce said.

Rep. Rodney Moore represents Mecklenburg County, but his roots are in his hometown of Wilmington.

“It is very important, because if you look at the history of Wilmington and the state in general, the state has moved progressively backwards,” Moore said.

More than 450 people have been arrested so far as part of the Moral Monday protests.

You weren’t an educator, well you were…but only for 5 years. The rest of the time, you were a union rep. http://www.tactncorg.com/Board-of-Directors.html

I do hope you carpet baggers realize your only have months left to ruin this state. Your Reps,Govs ,Treas will be history. I would suggest that you return to the rocks you crawled out from under. You are the outsiders they talk of. Right wing bigots enjoy the few moments you have left. I am covering the cost for all the feathers and tar needed to send you back up I-95 Go home you sad little bigots.You folks make a shitty diaper look good.

Younce you prove what an idiot you and your cronies are, you’ve been in public education for 40 years and have had a big hand in the dumbing down of our students, you should be ashamed, if after 40 years you and your cronies couldn’t have improved public education for our young people it’s time to seek a new career, maybe dishwasher!

People actually going to Raleigh to protest?
Good for us.
Any time people get that riled up about the goings on in our capital it’s a good sign be they Democrat or Republicans.

It’s good to see people getting involved….this is our form of government, at work……..
