Bree Newsome Removes Confederate Flag in South Carolina



"WE MUST LOVE AND PROTECT EACH OTHER" - Bree Newsome

In an act of civil disobedience, activist Bree Newsome took the confederate flag down today.

Rumor has it that the South Carolina Legislature was talking about taking flag down after the 4th of July. Just one more little slap in the face. Or were they simply waiting for the issue to wane before leaving it in place for another year or two or ten?





I have my doubts that that South Carolina was really planning to remove the flag. I won't believe it until I see it. But there's pressure all around. Other southern states are pulling that flag down. But the first state to leave the union so as to keep their slaves might be a harder nut to crack

From ColorOfChange.org

"South Carolina officials have sided with white supremacists in choosing to restore the flag before a planned rally. The legislature must immediately vote to permanently remove the Confederate flag from the capitol and all state buildings."



Bree Newsome took that terrorist flag down today, praying the entire time. Then she was calmly arrested. Watch her take it down. Then please sign a petition to have her set free.
