Hundreds of protesters packed into the gallery area of North Carolina’s state legislature on December 15 in protest of Republican efforts to undermine the power of incoming Democratic Governor-elect Roy Cooper.

After protesters interrupted the legislative activity multiple times, Capitol and Raleigh Police forcibly removed them from the gallery area. At least 16 people have been arrested in the protests, according to <a href="http://abc11.com/politics/nc-special-session-day-two-cooper-vs-republicans/1657723/" target="_blank">local news reports</a>.
