Protesters crash Neo-Confederate rally at Stone Mountain in Georgia

A neo-Confederate rally held at Georgia’s Stone Mountain on Saturday despite widespread opposition was crushed by a group of more than 100 protesters. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that protesters shouted as members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans spoke on Confederate Memorial Day. One of the members of the group – which the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as “a legacy group that exists to keep the Confederacy’s lies and propaganda alive” – ​​responded to the disruption by calling the protesters the “Antichrist.” . “These protesters are against our Christian faith,” said the spokesman, SCV member Kenneth Buggay. However, police managed to keep the two groups separated for the duration of the event. The rally sparked outrage in the region, as the Southern Poverty Law Center slammed local authorities for “providing a platform for white nationalists” by approving permission to hold the event. The location was seen as an extra slap in the face as Stone Mountain was where the Ku Klux Klan was reborn in 1915 and held cross burns for years.
