As Stella Adams put it so well, “We were occupying Jones Street [in Raleigh] 6 years ago, well before anyone was occupying Wall Street!”
Every February, thousands of North Carolinians assemble on Jones Street for the Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) march and rally. This annual event allows all of us to lift our voices for freedom, democracy, shared prosperity and progress for all North Carolinians. We march as a broad coalition, united in our work for justice and equality, and in solidarity with HKonJ’s 14-point agenda.
As a proud HKonJ partner, Action NC is asking our members and supporters to join us and our coalition for the 6th Annual Historic Thousands on Jones St. People’s Assembly Coalition Mobilization on Saturday, February 11, 2012 at Shaw University in Raleigh, starting at 9:30am.

If you believe in justice for people not corporations, if you believe in good jobs and workers rights, if you believe in equal protection under the law as the foundation on which our country stands, then come out for HKonJ!
Please join us and support public jobs, public service, and social justice. This rally will declare North Carolina to be in a state of emergency. Right wing extremists have seized control of the North Carolina legislature and have declared war on working families, the poor, minorities, seniors, and children. We need to hold them accountable and be remind them who they work for!
