Carrboro Board Member Damon Seils Detained While Protesting North Carolina General Assembly
Carrboro Board of Alderman member Damon Seils was detained on Friday morning during a protest of the North Carolina General Assembly.
The legislature has been in special session since Wednesday dealing with legislation that will remove some political power from Governor-elect Roy Cooper.

This was the second day in a row that protests of the legislature’s actions. Hillsborough commissioner Jenn Weaver was one of the protesters arrested on Thursday at the General Assembly.
Seils was detained after protesters began chanting “all political power comes from the people.”
