NC people Rising up for Your Rights !

There are So Many stories out there...
Standing up for our rights in this state is getting harder again.
Watching the government trying to strip the rights it has taken so long a fight to get is so insane.
It gives my heart hope when I see the young people of this generations out there with the ones that have been fighting for generations now !


Ray Donheiser called her first arrest "an honor," saying that she came to Monday's protest to oppose fracking. 
"What is it going to take for lawmakers to listen and respond in a way that you would want them to respond?" she said. "It's a great question. I hope somebody knows the answer. I'm willing to try whatever it takes."
  I recognized 2 fractivist faces in this video below from Lee County too. Way to go Cecilia Jimenez and Reginald Victor Marsh Jr for getting out there ! These 2 have been doing a lot to fight fracking too  ! They have a local group called "Workers For Clean Water, Trabajadores Por Agua Limpia "

What will it take to bring our NC Government understand we want our rights and "How long" ? Now last but not least ,one of my favorite groups fighting for NC rights , the "Raging Grannies"

"I started in 1954 at the Youth March for Integrated Schools in New York," said Vicki Ryder of Raging Grannies. "I've been doing this for a long time."
She and her fellow protestors directed their anger at the GOP-controlled legislature, which has refused to accept federal dollars to expand Medicaid to provide health insurance to more poor people, has cut unemployment benefits, has ended the earned income tax credit and has passed new voting restrictions. Republicans have controlled the Legislature since 2011.



Are you ready to Rise Up ?
