The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 450: Protesters in New Orleans

From the May 3 and 7, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Black Lawmakers Set Boycott Over Confederate Emblem on Flag.  (Mississippi)  Real big surprise there.

**   New Orleans (remains capitalized until May 10):  Protesters face off over Confederate monuments.  It is alright to peacefully protest.  No violence, though.

It took place by the Robert E. Lee statue.  Emotions were high in the estimated crowd of 700.  Three were arrested.  The anti-Confederate group called themselves "Take Em Down NOLA."
