RALEIGH,  – In what has become a regular Monday evening occurrence at the Legislative Building, there was another  series of arrests of those protesting the policies of the GOP legislature. In what observers are saying in the largest protest yet, almost 50 protests were taken into custody, with police using twist-tie type handcuffs, after the protestors refused to follow directives during their protests outside the State Senate Chambers.

The protests, which have been led by the State NAACP and other groups, are now being called “Moral Mondays,” and various groups have taken issue with the current legislatures positions on issues ranging from spending on health care education to plans to require photo identifications for voting.

Political analysts, such as Peace University David McLlennan, in a story first reported by NCNN noted that such protests are unlikely to change many minds among lawmakers.

Those who have been arrests in previous protests are no longer allowed on the grounds of the General Assembly, under threat of being arrested on the spot for trespassing.
