Josh Shaffer at the News and Observer has an article up that arguable waves bye-bye to Occupy Raleigh.

It’s Moral Meltdown Monday again in Raleigh! It’s not just Any Moral Meltdown Monday, it’s…
“MEGA” MELTDOWN MONDAY!
For more about Barber and his arrest antics read: Playing the Bus Card
Everyone get excited for more arrests, chanting and festivities in front of the state legislature! By the way, no one gets arrested at these things that doesn’t want to be. It’s a stunt for media attention. The gang will all be there, with the NAACP and AFL CIO leading the charge. Oh and Occupy Raleigh is going to show up too, what fun! We know how mostly peaceful things stay when Occupy joins in. Sorry if I seem a little flip about these protests, but living in the Triangle region makes one a little fed up with Barber and his endless three ring circuses.
This MEGA Meltdown Monday is special though, it even have a snazzy video complete with slogan:
Join the Forward Together Movement for a Moral Monday Mass Rally and Action on Monday, June 3, 2013 at 5:00 pm. The 5th Wave of Moral Mondays will lift up three pillars of democracy: Education, Economic Justice and Voting Rights.[youtube=http://youtu.be/ljJslK52oU0]
“Don’t try to make this about Black and White, this is about right and wrong!” – Rev. Barber
Yeah, whatever. Nothing is about right and wrong with Barber. He’s not interested in what’s right, he’s just interested in slamming Republicans no matter what and has been ever since they took control of the NCGA. Everything is about Black and White to Barber, because RACISM! So shut up you Teabaggers! Now go read this misleading lede from WRAL’s ‘professional journalist’ Laura Leslie and hush.
Forward together. Hmm Heard that before! RT @durhampeoples: Preparing for Moral Monday! #ncpol #ncga pic.twitter.com/xryQKnfCaD

The NAACP sure is fired up. They’re even doing a statewide tour, so no one will miss out on the arrests:
The Forward Together Movement Mobilizes Local Communities to Fight Back Against Extremism in NC General Assembly
RALEIGH – The 25-stop Forward Together Movement Local Organizing Tour will launch tomorrow in Raleigh and crisscross North Carolina over the next two weeks, spreading the word about the Tea Party-backed extremist forces who have high-jacked the NC General Assembly.
More video and outrage at the NAACP site. You know, the NAACP in NC is a 501(c)4. Wonder if they were harassed by the IRS? Hmm. Well, it doesn’t matter because the Executive Council of the North Carolina Democratic Party passed a resolution today:
Resolution in Support of Moral Mondays
“WHEREAS, our great state of North Carolina is being dragged back into the 19th Century by Republican legislators passing regressive legislation signed into law by Republican Governor Pat McCrory.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the the North Carolina Democratic Party supports the Moral Monday effort at the NC General Assembly to show our objection to these regressive actions; and
THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the North Carolina Democratic Party encourages Democrats to go to the NC General Assembly in Raleigh to support Moral Mondays.”
“Regressive actions” translated = THAT’S RAAAACIST!
Updates will be posted after the mayhem ensues, that is of course unless they get rained out which is highly likely given the forecast. Continue reading
Looks like more proof I was right about NC Student Power Union being one of many offshoots of Occupy Raleigh, or at bare minimum comrades in arms. They all celebrated May Day together in downtown Raleigh. It wasn’t as dramatic as Seattle, but it wasn’t totally boring either.
Thank you to those with the NCSPU (Student Power Union) who engaged in civil disobedience yesterday as the fight… fb.me/2Vts2XVfV

A whole couple dozen people turned out for the anniversary of Occupy in Raleigh downtown today. Turn out might have been hampered by the fact their own website listed the event as occurring on the 13th instead of the 15th which was the actual anniversary I believe:
Occupy Raleigh turns 1 year old and invites everyone, especially those who have participated over the year to the State Capitol (where Morgan & Fayetteville Streets meet) on October the 13th from Noon until three! We want to celebrate those who made events addressing the issues that continue to inspire Occupy Raleigh to stand up and speak out. Come out and help us celebrate rain or shine! Cake & ice cream, music, a few speakers and an open Mic for anyone who would like to express themselves! Come and share your perspectives on accomplishments, issues, and lessons learned over the course of the Occupy Movement’s first year! Along with the celebration Occupy Raleigh will be collecting food, winter coats and blankets! We will end the day with a People’s General Assembly at 4pm.
*Food Donations will benefit Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, coats and blankets will be distributed to local shelters.
This event is wheelchair accessible and disability affirmative. If you need additional accommodations please contact us 72 hours prior to the event.
At least ABC 11 got the date right. Fail on the date, but win with cake and ice cream! Yum Yum 99%!

Recently, a Charlotte Judge acquitted three occupiers and this week a Raleigh Judge follows suit. The arrests were conducted last October. Multiple people were blocking sidewalks and refused to move. The back story is here.
Local news isn’t covering the story as of this blog post, but I found this on OccupyRaleigh.net: Continue reading
