Protesters In Durham, NC Pull Down A Confederate Statue

Protesters in Durham, NC pulled down a confederate statue. The Confederate Soldiers Monument was dedicated to the city in 1924 and depicted a soldier who fought for the confederacy.

According to WNCN, a women used a ladder to tie a rope around the statue before other protesters pulled the statue down.

Democratic Governor Roy Cooper took to twitter to comment on the incident.

This event comes two days after protesters and counter-protesters clashed at a “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville, VA that left one person dead after a car plowed through counter-protesters and two more dead when a police helicopter crashed.
