Back to Gastonia for Justice
Join the Libertarian Party of North Carolina in Gastonia on June 7 at 5 p.m. We will join Pastor Moses Colbert to rally outside of Gastonia City Hall, 181 S South St., for another rally for justice and the homeless. We will demand:
- Justice in the case of Joshua Rohrer.
- That the city council publicly appeals for the release of the police body camera footage of Joshua's arrest and subsequent tasing of his service dog Sunshine.
- That the city removes the roadblocks in Pastor Moses Colbert's way that keep him from feeding and helping the homeless community in Gastonia.
After the rally, we'll head into the Gastonia City Council meeting to voice our concerns during the public comments portion of the meeting. We look forward to all who can join us.
