NAACP considers civil disobedience at General Assembly

The NAACP’s Rev. William Barber is again raising the threat of protests leading to arrests at the General Assembly.

On Saturday, Barber announced a meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Pilgrim United Church of Christ in Durham to talk about reacting to voter ID legislation.

It’s time, Barber writes, “to discuss and pray over the possibility of nonviolent civil disobedience and peaceful direct action at the N.C. General Assembly, The People’s House.”

Barber also raised that possibility last week. Barber was arrested last session with six others after chanting from the House gallery during a session on the state budget. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
