I've seen a few mentions today of Reverend Barber's appearance last night on NBC's The Last Word following yesterday's 12th Moral Monday protest at the General Assembly building in Raleigh.  I just watched the video, and thought it worth posting and sharing with those who haven't seen it.

It's a great interview; and Reverend Barber is as usual a great spokesperson for social justice in North Carolina.  This interview is of course after a long day there at the protest; but he still speaks eloquently, thoroughly addressing the questions asked, and making the case to the people of North Carolina.  Indeed, making the case to people all across this country who face similar Republican extremism on both the state and national levels.

With the legislative session ending, there is one more Moral Monday protest scheduled in Raleigh for this coming Monday.  Everyone is being invited back for the last big gathering; and it should be a memorable and moving experience.  After next Monday, Reverend Barber, the NAACP, and all of the other organizations that have been building this coalition will be taking these protests all across the state.

If you haven't been to Moral Monday yet, please try to make it this coming Monday.  And if you have, please try to make it back for this last great gathering at the close of the legislative session.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
