A heavy police presence accompanied crews of removal workers as they dismantled the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from Robert E. Lee Park in Dallas, on Thursday.
The statue was lifted from its plinth in the park near Uptown and loaded onto a trailer. The pickup truck used to carry the statue drove in convoy with a police motorcade as it began its journey to the western outskirts of... Еще the city, where it will remain on an abandoned naval air station until officials decide its fate at a later date.
The removal of the statue comes amid continued debate over whether Confederate statues have a place in the USA. In August, a far-right rally in Charlottesville rallied around the planned removal of a Robert E. Lee statue, and rising tensions led to clashes with counter protesters and a vehicle-ramming that left one dead and 19 injured.
