Dozens attend Huntsville Confederate monument protest and rally

Dozens attend Huntsville Confederate monument protest and rally

"We're here out-of-state. but everyone else that we're going to be standing up with tomorrow are Virginia residents".

There is no such vote on the table in Richmond, which served as the Capital of the Confederacy.

In foresight of an extensive turnout of rally dissidents, Richmond Police started to closing off bits of Monument Avenue Friday morning. "Peaceful group engaging in free speech at the Maggie Walker monument", Richmond police said in a tweet.

"I trust no one loses their lives tomorrow, on either side, I truly do".

Several dozen people came out for two separate Confederate monument demonstrations in downtown Huntsville. They will probably talk up in help of the Confederate landmarks after a few urban areas voted to evacuate their statues. According to the Richmond Times Dispatch, the second set of pro-Confederate protesters numbered just two people and left after roughly 30 minutes.

"You're causing trouble in our city", Lawrence yelled at the group. "It's only been one month since Heater Heyer was killed in Charlottesville. Have you no sensibility?" "They wanted us out of the state but then they slash our tires so we can't leave the state", The Richmond Times Dispatch reported Tara Brandau, one of the rally's organizers, told police as she waited with other pro-Confederate protesters for a tow.

Clearly longevity runs in the family as she passed away with her 97-year-old son by her side, they shared the home together. Brown told them it was still a little "like slavery" and was hard, but little by little Jamaica had become a good place.

Beyond holding an unlawful public rally, they potentially would be violating several state laws against carrying loaded firearms in public areas and brandishing weapons in a manner reasonably meant to intimidate others.

The rally will be met with a counter-protest from the North Alabama Democratic Socialists of America and the Tennessee Valley Progressive Alliance.

"My recommendation, and don't take this the wrong way, don't show up", Durham replied.

Any individual who appeared to the rally wearing covers or conveying different weapons would be captured, police said. Protesters who tried to hide their identities with masks would be arrested, no questions asked.

We hope Chief Durham will do his job by locking them up and taking their guns. "That's the struggle here".
