CHICAGO - North Carolina NAACP leader Rev. Dr. William Barber spoke September 20th to the SEIU Health Care Illinois-Indiana 2013 Leaders and Activists Assembly in Chicago. In a 35-minute speech, he blames those pushing for voter ID, seeking accountability for public sector unions, slowing implementation of Obamacare as a direct attack on "black, Latino, gay, straight, labor and people of faith." All of those causes are working together to deconstruct a movement that elected Barack Obama in 2008.
"The battle is now in the state capitols," Barber said, as the audience cheered.
Barber has started a "Moral Movement" among labor, civil rights and voting rights activists in North Carolina. "God isn't on the side of nobody that hates nobody for no reason," he said.
