Moral Monday Movement in North Carolina

  • Voter restriction with new ID requirements
  • Public Education cuts
  • Environmental deregulation
  • Abortion Limitation
  • Unemployment benefits reduction

These are a few of the issues steering this movement.  Its organizers, including the NAACP and some community religious leaders encourage followers to cross ethnic and religious barriers so their messages opposing the state’s GOP controlled house and senate are voiced.  They are willing to be arrested, and are.

The movement says all the right things; and the surface looks reasonable.   Their arrest record, along with government and authority opposition to the movement make it look like the second coming of ‘Occupy.’  Involvement of seniors and a varied cross-section of public supporters remind me of the Tea Party.

Right now, I don’t know if this is real.  What would be the political outcome of their success?
