NC protesters pull down Confederate statue
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Protesters in North Carolina have toppled a long-standing statue of a Confederate soldier.
Activists on Monday evening used a rope to pull down the monument outside a Durham courthouse. Video footage posted online shows protesters - some white, some black - kicking the crumpled bronze statue as dozens of people in the crowd cheered and chanted.
The Durham protest was in response to a white nationalist rally held in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend. Authorities say one woman was killed Saturday after one of the white nationalists drove his car into a group of peaceful counterprotesters.
A United Daughters of the Confederacy website says the Confederate Soldiers Monument was erected in 1924.
