Activists In 6 States Plan To Spread NC Protests

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Organizers of regular protests at the North Carolina Legislature are being joined by NAACP leaders in a half-dozen other states to launch a week of demonstrations.


The North Carolina NAACP says that Friday will be the first of seven days of demonstrations. In North Carolina, a coalition led by the NAACP has protested at the Capitol nearly every week during the past two legislative sessions.


NAACP leaders from Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Tennessee and Wisconsin said on a conference call Tuesday that they will hold demonstrations in their states during some or all of the seven days. Organizers say demonstrations are also being planned in Mississippi.


About 900 people were arrested at protests during the 2013 legislative session in North Carolina, and about 100 were arrested during this year's session.
