The Greensboro, N.C., version of the Wall Street protest movement, which attracted 600 demonstrators on Sunday, will get a chance to showcase its strength in front of President Obama on Monday.
According to a report in the News & Record of Greensboro, about 200 protesters agreed unanimously to intensify the group’s efforts and consider picketing The Proximity Hotel there, where the president is expected to stay on Monday night.
In addition, the group requested a meeting with the president so the protesters could share their “individual grievances.”
“We wished to invite you to visit with our assembly and hear why the people gathered here are upset with our government,” a letter from the protesters read in part.
Obama is on a three-day bus tour through Virginia and North Carolina to promote parts of his American Jobs Act.
