The event will honor 68 local residents who have been arrested during the Moral Monday protests at the NC General Assembly in Raleigh. The interview with Keever and Rayburn will be re-broadcast at noon this Saturday and Sunday on MAIN-FM 103.7.
Since April, 821 people have been arrested for non-violent civil disobedience during the Moral Monday demonstrations in Raleigh, according to the event press release. No civil disobedience is planned for Mountain Moral Monday.
“For the past 12 weeks, people from all walks of life and from all around the state have gathered in Raleigh to protest the frenzy of extremism that has gripped our state government,” said Valerie Hoh, a Mountain Moral Monday spokesperson and member of Save Our Water WNC. “This event will give people in our part of the state a chance to stand up for justice, democracy and moderation.”
The interview with Keever and Rayburn is a public service of the Mountain Area Information Network and MAIN-FM 103.7. MAIN-FM returned to the local airwaves in June with a much-improved signal. Live stream available via the MAIN homepage at http://www.main.nc.us/
