NC NAACP Plans Another Protest For Monday

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina NAACP is preparing for another round of protests at the General Assembly following the arrest of 17 activists.

 
State chapter president the Rev. William Barber said Friday that more NAACP members and activists aligned with the group will engage in nonviolent demonstrations with the possibility of more arrests. Religious leaders, professors, members of social justice group the Raging Grannies and others are expected to join the protests.

 
The NAACP has come out forcefully against what the group calls a regressive agenda in the Republican-led General Assembly targeting Medicaid and unemployment benefits.

 
Seventeen members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and other activists were arrested Monday outside the Senate chambers of the General Assembly. All were charged with misdemeanors and later released on bond.
