April 15th proved to be a day that Americans had grown tired of overtaxation, corporate welfare, and a growing central government. Between 5,000-7,000 people showed up in Raleigh alone to the tea party to protest these and other grievances. Civitas attended with camera in hand: capturing the sights, speakers, and getting the average citizen’s perspective. Below is a montage of sorts with footage from the Raleigh Tea Party. You can also view other videos on the Civitas site.
