During a solidarity protest with Charlottesville protestors surrounded a confederate statue and start chanting “No Trump! No KKK! No fascists! USA” as several protestors appear to pull down the statue with a rope.
The confederate statue was dedicated in Durham, North Carolina (USA), in 1924 and was located in front of a local government building.
According to loval media reports the statue represented a soldier who fought in the Civil War and an inscription on the front read “The Confederate States of America.”
One of the protesters told reporters that toppling the statue was in response to the fascist terror attack at the Unite the Right demo in Charlottesville, Virginia (USA), this weekend.
“It needs to be removed,” organizer Loan Tran told reporters. “These Confederate statues in Durham, in North Carolina, all across the country.”
The protest follows the “Unite the Right” demonstrations in Virginia this weekend, where fascists gathered to protest the city of Charlottesville’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate General. Robert E. Lee.
