140 People Arrested in Latest North Carolina NAACP Protests
140 people were arrested in the latest round of NAACP protests in North Carolina.
The protests are in opposition to a conservative Republican-led agenda.
About 1,000 people attended the demonstration, many cheering wildly in support of fellow protesters as they were carted off to jail.
Police estimate that roughly 1,000 people attended a rally late Monday afternoon behind the Legislative Building. Hundreds later entered the building, with those intending to get arrested wearing green wrist bands.
Those arrested were taken away in plastic bindings. They bring the total arrested in the weekly demonstrations to about 300. The rallies have taken place nearly every Monday since April.
Hundreds more waited outside to cheer on those arrested as they were transported to a detention facility.
Kudos to everyone working hard in North Carolina; taking it to the streets and making their voices heard!
