March Against Fear 2014 The Road to Civil Rights for Cannabis Users.
Asheville Vance Monument to the Raleigh Legislative Building
On June 6, 1966 James Meredith started a solitary March Against Fear for 220 miles from Memphis, Tennessee to Jackson, Mississippi to protest against racism. Ordinary people both black and white came from the South and all parts of the country to participate.
On June 6, 2014, Todd Stimson will start a March Against Fear peaceful picketing walking for 240 miles from Asheville, NC to the Raleigh Legislative Building to protest against the violation of cannabis users’ rights and to support Legislation of Cannabis (NC HB941) and the 2014 House Bill to create an amendment to the state’s constitution to legalize medical marijuana (NC HB1161). Hoping to break the fear of incarceration for possessing and cultivating a non-toxic, and minimally addictive plant, citizens have to stand up for their rights and demand their voices be heard. The marchers will be taking US 70 and US 64 traveling through many cities for 17 days. They will then be peaceful picketing walking into Raleigh on Moral Monday June 23.
Todd and the other marchers hope to inspire ordinary people (both users and non-users) from across the state and all over the South to participate.
