Moral Monday leaders stop in the Port City

Friday, January 31st, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Frustrated with our elected leaders, the NAACP is gathering masses.

President of the organization, Reverend William Barber took his statewide tour to Wilmington Friday morning.

“What they forgot is that all politicians are terribly temporary,” said Reverend William Barber.

Barber and the Forward Together team are drumming up support for next week’s Moral March in Raleigh.

“We will have a people’s assembly representing all of North Carolina and its diversity,” he said.

Barber says he expects thousands to turn out for the peaceful protest February 8th, which he said kicks off a year of nonviolent, direct-action.

“We, the people united, have never been defeated,” said Barber. “Last year they had a chance to vote in the legislature. This year we will vote with our voices.”

The group says they will be the voices for the sick, the poor, women, children, and hardworking people who have been affected by extremist law-making.

“We answer to being the moral agents of our time,” said Barber as the crowd cheered loudly behind him.

The local chapter of the NAACP said Wilmington will be out in full-force at the march.

“If you are unemployed, if you didn’t get Medicaid, contact us. We really want you to come with us, no cost,” said Deborah Maxwell, local president.

We also asked Maxwell about the Wilmington Police K9 Officer accused of using too much force on a man in November, who is back on the job.

She said she had hoped the department would have done more to punish Officer Stafford Brister.

However, she applauds WPD for its efforts into looking more closely into the unit to make sure this does not happen again.
