Excerpt from Heat Street
Written by Emily Zanotti
Protesters in Charlotte have released a list of demands they say must be met before they allow the city to return to peace and quiet.
Although Friday and Saturday saw a return to some semblance of order — thanks to push-back from Charlotte’s police department, and a curfew designed to prevent the type of violence seen earlier in the week – the “CharLIT Uprising,” as it’s now known, says that the “damage is done” and that the city will remain in a “state of emergency” until their demands are met.
It’s quite a wish-list.
