Protesters Topple Two Confederate Statues in Raleigh, Hang One by The Neck

One of two confederate statues toppled from a monument on North Carolina’s State Capitol grounds on June 19 was strung up by the neck from a lamp post.

Local media reported that hundreds of anti-racism protesters celebrated Juneteeth in Raleigh on Friday night before the statues were torn down and dragged through the street.

One of the statues was hung from a pole on W Hargett Street while the other was left on the steps of the Wake County courthouse, reports said.
