RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina NAACP has scheduled a Moral Monday protest against passage of legislation that provides protection for Confederate memorials.

State NAACP President the Rev. William Barber said in a news release that the rally is set for Monday at 5 p.m. It was not immediately clear if the protest will be at the Legislative Building or the old Capitol building, where Gov. Pat McCrory’s offices are located.

The NAACP also plans to continue its repeated pleas that McCrory halt the sale of license plates bearing the Confederate flag symbol.

McCrory has said he wants to stop selling the plates, but he believes the law requires him to wait for legislative approval.
