 Raleigh, N.C.     As professional activists prepare for another Moral Monday protest at the General Assembly, the North Carolina Republican Party (NCGOP) today called on Roy Cooper to denounce Moral Mondays and the tactics used by their activists to push for their pro-union agenda.

 The News & Observer's Colin Campbell recently reported that Democrats have sought to distance themselves from Moral Mondays, avoiding their rallies and demonstrations: "Many Democratic politicians, meanwhile, have avoided aligning themselves with Barber or publicly praising his work — which includes the sit-ins and acts of civil disobedience that resulted in 54 arrests at the legislature last week."

"As his campaign supporters continue to fight for higher taxes and bigger government, the attorney general's silence is deafening," said NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes. "As North Carolina's chief law enforcement officer and a candidate for governor, Roy Cooper must denounce the radical demands and law-breaking tactics of these Moral Monday protesters."

 Many of the groups behind Moral Mondays have endorsed Roy Cooper, including the state chapter of the AFL-CIO labor union. In a 2014 interview with the Raleigh News & Observer, Roy Cooper said he was "encouraged" by Moral Monday protests. Since then, the protesters have only escalated their divisive rhetoric and released a list of demands which would weaken our state's right to work laws, increase taxes by $4,000 per family and increase North Carolina's budget by $10 billion. Additionally, hundreds more protesters have been arrested for trespassing, blocking traffic and breaking the law, and the leader of Moral Mondays was removed from an American Airlines flight for disobeying orders from a flight attendant and physically grabbing her hand.

 Last year, the North Carolina Republican Party uncovered millions of dollars from out-of-state labor unions being funneled to the organizers of Moral Mondays, including tens of thousands of dollars to William Barber.
