Protesters topple Confederate Monument in Durham, N.C.

Protesters toppled a Confederate monument in Durham, N.C. on Monday night. Video posted to Twitter shows protesters surrounding the statue and chanting “No KKK! No fascists! USA” as several protesters appear to pull down the statue with a rope.

The statue was dedicated in Durham in 1924 and was located in front of a local government building. The statue represented a soldier who fought in the Civil War and an inscription on the front read “The Confederate States of America.”

The protest follows the “Unite the Right” rally in Virginia this weekend, where white supremacists, white nationalists and neo-Nazis gathered to protest the city of Charlottesville’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
