A rally wrapped up Wednesday morning to remove a carving at the world's largest Confederate monument.
Civil rights advocates took to the streets and marched up Stone Mountain while most were barbecuing for the Fourth holiday. They said the carving is racist and anti-American. Some don't see a problem with it, but advocates said it symbolizes white supremacy and slavery.
"No justice, no peace," they chanted.
With armed security in tow, they held signs and made their point crystal-clear. They want the state of Georgia to take action.
"It represents everything evil about our country: hate, oppression and slavery," protester Melissa Holloway said.
“We’re in a country that’s supposed to bring us all together, not separate us, and yes it’s history, but it’s hatred. We don’t want to continue to spread the hatred around,” protester Tanesha Abernathy said.
