Silent Moral Monday

5/19/2014

The inaugural Moral Monday of 2014 in Raleigh was in part a protest against hastily passed building rule changes designed to muffle the Movement.  Preceded as usual by a briefing and press conference at a local church, a huge rally on Bicentennial Mall fed an hour-long, procession of marchers through the legislative building, around the third floor of the rotunda and out onto Halifax Mall.  Their mouths taped during the procession, participants made clear that this was the last time they would remain silent inside the legislative building.
