Tonight Antifa and Black Live Matter protesters managed to pull down the statue of Albert Pike, an Officer in the Confederate Army. It was Washington D.C.’s only Confederate statue.
Once the statue came down, activists doused it with oil and set it on fire, as well as setting off firecrackers next to it.
The action followed a Juneteenth march organized by Washington D.C.’s antifascist collective and Black Lives Matter chapters.
