USA: Protesters demand Mississippi flag to be taken down during Philadelphia march

Protesters demanded the removal of the Mississippi state flag which was attached to a lamppost in Philadelphia, Monday.
The march of Bernie Sanders supporters congregated around the lamppost with some protesters attempting to remove the flag themselves. Eventually a construction worker in a cherry picker removed the flag to the cheers of the crowd below.
The flag of Mississippi is the only current US state flag that features the Confederate flag, which represented the pro-slavery southern states during the American Civil War.
