Courtesy of the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, protesters have a permit to demonstrate outside today's Wake County school board meeting.
Elena Everett, community media director of the left-wing, Durham-based SCSJ, filed the paperwork for the permit to demonstrate outside the school admin building on Wake Forest Road. The group had also done the paperwork for the March 2 protest.
The SCSJ has been heavily involved in the efforts to oppose the school board majority's efforts to end busing for socioeconomic diversity. In addition to helping with the March 2 protest, the group provided legal aid for the lawsuit that was dismissed Friday.
We'll see how many people show up today and how many are high school students as opposed to older demonstrators. For instance, the socialist Raleigh F.I.S.T. sent out a notice Monday encouraging people to attend the protest.
As of this morning, 91 people had said on a Facebook page that they'd attend.
