Pro-Confederate Flag Protesters Rally in South Carolina and Alabama

Confederate flag-waving protesters crowded the steps of the South Carolina Statehouse in Columbia on Saturday, hours after an activist named Bree Newsome briefly removed the controversial flag and was arrested immediately afterwards.
A similar rally drew nearly one thousand demonstrators at the state capitol building in Montgomery, Alabama, where the flag was removed earlier this week on the orders of Gov. Robert Bentley, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.
