About 40 people braved inclement weather on Sunday to protest proposed cuts to the U.S. Postal Service that would end Saturday delivery.

Yesterday’s event was one of two in North Carolina, and one of many protests at state Capitols across the country. The National Association of Letter Carriers mobilized its local chapters to call attention to proposals to end Saturday deliveries.

“Neither rain, nor snow, nor the postmaster general’s misguided plan will stay these supporters from protecting six-day delivery,” shouted Craig Schadwald, vice president of the association’s state chapter.
