PROTESTERS VOW BIGGER CROWDS IN CHARLOTTE…

September 1, 2012 3:40 pm  

(Weekly Standard) – “Protesters planning rallies and marches in Charlotte say their actions during the Democratic National Convention will likely dwarf those in Tampa, where thousands of demonstrators were expected but only hundreds showed up to the rain-drenched Republican National Convention.

“A cross-section of people representing 90 groups planning to demonstrate during the DNC said they plan to bring their ‘Enough is Enough’ messages to Charlotte starting Saturday. Friday’s press conference took place at the NoDa office that has become the headquarters for many protesters in Charlotte.

“The Charlotte weather forecast calls for hot temperatures, but mostly clear skies. In Tampa, Hurricane Isaac washed out the first day of the protests and intermittent rain throughout the week frustrated the efforts of protesters.

“‘We’ll have more,’ said Luis Rodriguez, with ActionNC, a nonprofit that works in low-income communities. ‘One of the things that brought down people’s enthusiasm in Tampa was the storm.’

“Protesters and police in Charlotte have said they expect 2,000-10,000 protesters to descend on Charlotte. The numbers could be bolstered by protesters frustrated at their inability to share their message in Tampa. …

“Occupy Charlotte is one of more than 90 groups planning a march through uptown on Sunday that could be among the biggest demonstrations in Charlotte’s history.”
