Baltimore crews take down confederate monuments overnight

HATE GROUPS SHOW THEIR VIOLENCE WORKS

8-16-2017


At the Wyman Park Dell in Baltimore, a large pedestal sits empty where Robert E Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson once stood. The stone block is now covered with graffiti, both celebrating and denouncing the downfall. This removal, which happened in the middle of the night, was one of four confederate statues stripped away in the dead of the night.

Also removed was a monument to The Confederate Women’s Monument on West University Parkway, The Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Mount Royal Avenue, and the Roger B . Taney Monument, on Mount Vernon Place.

Removing these statues, were city contractors and workers. Mayor Catherine Pugh was seen at the statue overnight, watching the removal process. Despite the late hour, dozens gathered at the statues, primarily to celebrate the action.

“We need to destroy these symbols,” said Ryan Harbey.

“But more importantly we need to destroy these systems that maintain racism today,” Harbey added.
