"Caravan to protest Black Belt license office closings still on despite partial reopening"

AL.com reports: A caravan to protest the closing of driver's license offices in Alabama's Black Belt will proceed even though Gov. Robert Bentley announced the offices would reopen at least one day a month starting Nov. 1.

Caravan organizers announced today they would still make stops in 11 counties on Thursday and Friday, as they had planned last week.

In a news release, they called the plan to open at least one day a month a "charade."

"This will cause great hardship for the people who can least afford it and who are most impacted," the statement said.

Caravan organizers are the Save OurSelves Movement for Justice and Democracy and the National Action Network, founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton. -- Caravan to protest Black Belt license office closings still on despite partial reopening | AL.com
