Protesters in Durham, N.C. toppled a Confederate monument Monday night during a protest responding to a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. this past weekend.
Video captured by a local television station, WNCN, shows a crowd of protesters outside the courthouse. A woman climbed the statue using a ladder and attached a rope around the statue.
The crowd pulled on the rope and the statue fell down. Protesters proceeded to take turns kicking the fallen statue.
According to WNCN, the Confederate statue was dedicated in Durham in 1924.
Engraved on the front of the monument is "The Confederate States of America."
The incident comes after the violence in Charlottesville this weekend, where white nationalists gathered to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee and fought with counter-demonstrators.
One woman, Heather Heyer, was killed and another 19 were injured when a 20-year-old man plowed his car into the group of people protesting the white nationalists. The man, identified as James Alex Fields, a suspected Nazi sympathizer, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
