New Hanover County Democrats head to Moral Monday protest

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.

The dems/libs are like

The dems/libs are like spoiled rotten children. When things don't go their way they have a hissy fit. These groups are trying the bullying tactics used in Wisconsin to return things to the democrat party way regardless of the economic outcome.
By the way, these protester arrests have nothing to do with the actual issues. The purpose is to 1. draw attention to them and 2. to disrupt the judicial system. Standard procedures for liberal protests. Read Alinsky's Rules for Radicals.
