About 200 members of the Sons of Accomplice Veterans in Ga had been met by counter-protesters as they gathered at Stone Mountain to commemorate the group’s unofficial “Memorial Working day.”
Demonstrators, about 100 in all, shouted expletives and held signs in assistance of “racial justice” and “black lives matter.”
“Nothing historic with regard to the Civil War happened at this park,” Gerald Griggs, Atlanta legal professional and president of the point out meeting of the NAACP, instructed the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “So there’s no need to have to memorialize traitors to the American democracy.”
Georgia Condition Patrol stored the two sides divided and the rally finished peacefully with no noteworthy clashes or arrests noted.
