Charlotteans demonstrate for Libya

Dozens of Charlotte area residents with ties to Libya, Bahraini, and Yemen will hold a join together tonight (Feb. 22) as a sign of solidarity with the people protesting in their homeland.

Inspired by the successful ousting of the authoritarian presidents in Tunisia and Egypt, masses of Libyan people have been engaged in uprisings over the last several weeks. Human rights groups say that more than 200 people have died.

Charlotte organizers plan to meet Uptown at Marshall Park on East 3rd street at 7 p.m. For more information, visit the groups Facebook page or call (919) 413-1816.
