Demonstrators Call For Change

Moral Monday hits the mountains. In McDowell County, demonstrators calling on for a slew of changes.

Signs called for food stamp and Medicaid changes, hunting regulation, an overhaul of public education and teacher pay. They ran the gamut - with about a dozen folks organizing short notice - over the weekend - making signs, trying to make it known that they feel bullied by legislators in Raleigh.

"I think if you read their signs they're pretty self expressive. They are not satisfied with what the laws have been changed to. We feel threatened and abused," said Elizabeth O'Nan.

In Rutherford County, another demonstration included teachers lobbying to protect the future of public schools. They said the state budget signed by the governing Friday is cutting teacher benefits, and reshaping public education in this state in a damaging way.
