Стотици на антирасистки протест в Чарлстън

Hundreds of demonstrators marched through Charleston, Saturday, to protest against racism following the shooting of nine black churchgoers by a white male, believed to be 21-year-old suspect Dylann Roof, at the Emanuel AME Church on Wednesday. Protesters marched through the streets of the city, passed the church were the shooting took place, before rallying outside the Daughters of the Confederacy building. Speeches were held and protesters could be seen carrying placards with messages including "Black lives matter" and "Stop white terrorism". A sign with the names of the nine victims of the church shooting was also unfurled outside the building. On Friday, twenty-one-year-old suspect Dylann Roof attended court where he faced nine charges of murder and one charge of possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. Roof reportedly sat for one hour of a Bible study class at the Emanuel AME Church, before shooting nine churchgoers on Wednesday evening. In court the suspect only spoke via video link when the judge asked him a question and otherwise remained silent for the rest of the hearing. Relatives of the victims addressed Roof one by one personally, some saying they had forgiven him for what he has done. His bail has been set at $1 million (€879,000).
