39 arrested in Georgia’s Capitol today in #MoralMonday Medicaid Action

Nearly 40 Moral Monday Georgia activists today were arrested for interrupting proceedings throughout the Georgia Capitol in an effort to urge Gov. Nathan Deal to expand Medicaid – and block legislation that would strip him of the authority to do so.

The first group of protesters was sitting in the state Senate gallery that overlooks the upper chamber. Around 11:10 a.m., four activists who were in the gallery’s first row, began to unroll a large banner and loudly chanted, “Medicaid expansion now!”

The weekly newspaper Creative Loafing has superb reporting on the action and numerous photographs.

The tag tweeters are using specifically for Georgia is #RiseUpGA.

FYI:  I’ve decided I’ll do my small part to assist the Moral Monday/Forward Together movement here at cheddar place. Any and all things Moral Monday and Forward Together-related are welcome here.
