Rally Against NC HB2

March 24, 2016, Downtown Asheville, North Carolina.

In the cloak of the evening’s darkness, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory chiseled away once again any sovereignty held by local city governments by signing into law NC HB2. The bill essentially strips away any protection from discriminatory practices against the LBGTQ community.

The underlying issue at hand here is of course the slippery slope that many times leads to a pernicious dismantling of basic civil liberties that, over time, reveal the draconian intent to roll back any social progress that eventually affects each and everyone of us.

NC HB2 Demonstration at Pack Square

Rather than some verbose commentary, I would rather share just the images that I caught of the demonstration held at Pack Square in downtown Asheville, revealing the diverse face of the community that came together to express both support for their fellow citizens, and the ongoing distrust of a representative body that distorts the meaning of compassion and dignity.

In time, you may find that your comfortable existence becomes another iteration of “separate but equal.”
