More than 100 protesters rallied outside the General Assembly in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, on Tuesday morning, lambasting Gov. Roy Cooper’s stay-at-home restrictions and calling for businesses to reopen amid the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic.

From #ReopenNC group's Facebook page:
We are residents of North Carolina that stand for The Constitution and demand our officials Reopen NC no later than April 29, 2020. We are losing our small businesses, which are the backbone of our economy. The shutdown is not warranted, nor sustainable for our area. The vulnerable can be isolated or protected in other ways, without sacrificing our entire state economy. It's important to note, several other states have not enacted stay at home orders.
We are aware of the #ReopenNC protest that is occurring in Downtown Raleigh on Wilmington and Jones Street and are monitoring the situation.— Raleigh Police (@raleighpolice) April 14, 2020

We are more than willing to put in the work, but our resources are depleted." https://t.co/h6xm3TJeq0 #avlopinion #AVL #NCpol #NCGA #avlnews #ReOpenNC #ReopenAmerica— Pete Kaliner (@PeteKaliner) April 15, 2020
