They’d walked 20 miles to talk to N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory, who was indisposed. Fourteen of them were arrested when they blocked traffic.
Read the comments from the teachers and parents, and why they walked. They’re damn inspiring.
Here’s more on the organizing group, Organize 2020.
I think it was a tactical error for McCrory to dodge the protesters. Let’s hope Organize 2020 can use that to some advantage in the future.
They face a formidable foe: neoliberalism.
I believe it was an error, as well. And stupid, besides.
We should do better than this for our kids. McCrory needs to make time for this discussion.
