N.C. sued soon after voter ID bill signed into law

By Phil Hirschkorn

August 12, 2013, 8:47 PM

... Rosanell Eaton, a 92-year-old black woman from Louisburg, N.C., and registered to vote since the 1940s, is the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit filed Monday in the Middle District of North Carolina by the NAACP and the Advancement Project.

"Mrs. Eaton, who was born at home, has a current North Carolina driver's license, but the name on her certified birth certificate does not match the name on her driver's license or the name on her voter registration card," the lawsuit said. "Mrs. Eaton will incur substantial time and expense to correct her identification documents to match her voter registration record in order to meet the new requirements."

The lawsuit seeks relief under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which bans voting procedures that discriminate on the basis of race, and under the 14th and 15th amendments of the Constitution. The recent Supreme Court ruling limited reviews under formulas in Sections 4 and 5 of the VRA.

Beyond the ID requirements, the new North Carolina law reduces the number of days for early voting from 17 to 10, even though 61 percent of state voters cast ballots early in 2012. McCrory said the law calls for the total early voting hours to remain the same by asking county board of elections to increase the number of early voting sites and hours open each day ...

joe worker (the cradle will rock)

listen
here's a story
not much fun and not much glory
low class
low down
the thing you never care to see until there is a showdown
here it is
i'll make it snappy
are you ready?
everybody happy?

joe worker gets gypped
for no good reason just gypped
from the start until the finish comes
they feed him out of garbage cans
they breed him in the slums

joe worker will go
to shops where stuff is on show
he'll look at the meat
he'll look at the bread
and too little to eat
sort of goes to the head
one big question
inside me cries
how many fakers
peace undertakers
paid strike-breakers
how many toiling ailing dying piled up bodies
brother
does it take
to make you wise? ...

talkin about a revolution

don't you know talkin about a revolution sounds
like a whisper ...

while they're standing in the welfare lines
crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
wasting time in the unemployment lines
sitting around waiting for a promotion ...

poor people gonna rise up and get their share
poor people gonna rise up and take what's theirs

don't you know you better run run run...

Birmingham Sunday

Come round by my side and I'll sing you a song
I'll sing it so softly it'll do no one wrong
On Birmingham Sunday the blood ran like wine
And the choir kept singing of freedom ...

The Ballad Of Springhill

In the town of Spring Hill Nova Scotia
Down in the dark of the Cumberland Mine
There's blood on the coal and miners lie
In the roads that never saw sun nor sky ...

In the town of Spring Hill you don't sleep easy
Often the Earth will tremble and roll
When the Earth is restless, miners die
Bone and blood is the price of coal ...

Eight days passed and some were rescued
Leaving the dead to lie alone
All their lives they dug their graves
Two miles of earth for a marking stone
