Hundreds protesters took part in the «Take 'em Down NOLA» rally in New Orleans, Saturday, demanding the removal of all statues, memorials and the renaming of buildings linked to Confederate history in the city.
As the crowd chanted «No Trump, no KKK [Ku Klux Klan], no Fascist USA,» people waved white flags and held banners reading «Use your white privilege to fight white supremacy. NOLA resists» and «White silence = violence».
The march started at Congo Square and crossed the French Quarter, culminating at Jackson Square. Although some tensions with counter-demonstrators rose as the rally approached its end, the event was peaceful and no violence broke out.
The march was organised by the «Take em Down NOLA» group, a civic body that advocates for the removal of monuments linked to the Confederacy in New Orleans. The action follows the death of an anti-racist activist who was killed in a car attack at a 'Unite the Right' rally in Charlottesville on August 13.
