Raleigh | Stolen Votes, Silenced Voices; March to the NC Legislature

October 4 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The NC State Legislature has stolen our votes through gerrymandered districts. We will march in silent protest, to represent the thousands of stolen voices across this state.

On Wednesday 10/04 @ 10am we will meet in front of the Duke Energy Center at 2 E. South Street. We will march north on Fayetteville St until the Capitol, turn right on to E. Morgan Street for half a block, turning left onto S. Wilmington St. to the Legislative Building.

For visual effect marchers are asked to consider covering their mouth with Black Tape (supplied by the organizers). Please wear a white shirt, and any posters or signs should pertain to gerrymandering and/or voting rights. We need a strong consistent statement to capture media and the public’s attention.

The March will conclude with a press conference scheduled at 11am on the General Assembly lawn. The Legislature resumes special session at noon, so we expect to have a significant impact on news coverage that day.

 

Poster/Signs should focus on the theme of voter suppression, gerrymandering, partisan power grab. Suggestions:

-Foxes guarding the hen house
-Gerrymander, n. a politician’s job protection plan
-We the People, silenced by our government
-Stop NC’s War on Democracy
-Unconstitutionally Constituted Legislature
