The Charlotte Observer
reports that big protests and rallies are expected in Charlotte:
"Protesters planning rallies and marches in Charlotte say their actions during the Democratic National Convention will likely dwarf those in Tampa, where thousands of demonstrators were expected but only hundreds showed up to the rain-drenched Republican National Convention.
"A cross-section of people representing 90 groups planning to demonstrate during the DNC said they plan to bring their 'Enough is Enough' messages to Charlotte starting Saturday. Friday’s press conference took place at the NoDa office that has become the headquarters for many protesters in Charlotte.
"Occupy Charlotte is one of more than 90 groups planning a march through uptown on Sunday that could be among the biggest demonstrations in Charlotte’s history."
