‘Peaceful protest’ at noon to support reopening NC

April 21. Diane “Dee” Gilroy, an unsuccessful candidate for Town Board last year, is organizing a “peaceful protest using social distancing to support beginning Phase 1 of the White House Plan to ReOpen NC no later than May 1.”

The protest will take place on the Exit 28 bridge, the scene of anti-toll protests in years past.

Gilroy said she is not running for Town Board next year. The protest begins at noon.

Gov. Cooper’s stay-at-home order ends April 29. Gilroy said not doing so will have dire consequences for our economy.

In a Facebook post, she said, “There will be more deaths from suicide, heart attacks, murder, cancer etc than all the COVID-19 deaths in our state if we prolong the quarantine.”
