Some 300 anti-fascists gathered near Sam Houston Park in Houston, Texas on Saturday, demanding the removal of the 'Spirit of the Confederacy' statue.
A heavy police presence was deployed on the site, as dozens of activists staged a rally in support of the Confederate statue. Police worked to keep the protests separate. No casualties were reported.
Protests swept across the country earlier in... Еще the week, with demonstrations against Confederate statues occurring in major US cities such as Washington, Durham and Boston.
Last Saturday, self-proclaimed neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and white nationalist groups, among others, gathered as part of a 'Unite the Right' rally in the centre of Charlottesville. Violence quickly broke out when counter-protesters arrived to confront the group, with police going on to disperse the rallies after proclaiming a state of emergency. One person, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, was later killed, with 19 others injured, when a car ploughed into the counter-protesters.
