According to the Raleigh News and Observer,
A coalition of labor, civil rights and religious groups rallied in front of the General Assembly offices today to call for an end to North Carolina’s ban on public employees’ collective bargaining and to resist balancing the state budget at the expense of public sector jobs and programs.
The rally drew about 100 supporters who listened to several speakers representing labor, churches and the NAACP, staff writer Craig Jarvis reports. About two dozen people staged a counter-protest across across the street in Bicentennial Plaza, shouting and chanting throughout the rally.
Yeah, about 100 if you count the cops, media, and random passersby. Does this look like 100?
See my previous post on this SEIU rally.
