Protests Continue in North Carolina

More than 600 people have been arrested in North Carolina in protests over the sudden rightward swing of the state government, Bloomberg reports.

"The weekly outpourings of anger, called Moral Mondays, were prompted by the first Republican-led North Carolina government since Reconstruction. Its leaders are pushing dramatic change in a state whose economy has been dominated by technology, higher education and banking, and one that is narrowly divided between parties, choosing President Barack Obama in 2008 and Republican Mitt Romney last year."
