State lawmakers put the finishing touches on their anti-worker agenda last night when they backed final passage of the worst voter suppression measure in the nation. During the now-ended session, legislators closely followed the corporate-empowerment script prepared by ALEC and promoted by the state’s billionaire budget director, Art Pope.As Twitter user Kdog-WNC tweeted:
Unfortunately the Pope has decreed that these things shall come to pass.
|Residents will be out in force to protest voter repression bill.|

Sad - a letter from an NC teacher who can no longer afford to teach. Why are we not ashamed? #NCLEG #ncgov http://bit.ly/1c91uxT

I was going to make a joke about #NCLEG inserting insane language into an unrelated bill but they've already used up all my material.
North Carolinians are not taking this lying down. They are pissed and planning to take to the streets in Raleigh Monday. Moral Monday organizers are calling out to all those against this anti-worker agenda to come to the Statehouse grounds to be heard:
Join us at Halifax Mall for a Mass Moral Monday March & Interfaith Social Justice Service as we strengthen our faith for the battle ahead and send every attendee from every part of the state back home to be a trumpet of conscience and agent of change.
