Activists cheered as the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee was removed from Richmond, Virginia’s Monument Avenue and cut in half Wednesday afternoon.

The statue was removed in accordance with an executive order signed by Governor Ralph Northam, and its pieces will be stored at the Virginia’s Goochland Women’s Correctional Center, a female-only state prison.

As the Robert E Lee statue was removed, Black Lives Matter 757 activist JaPharii Jones ran through a barricaded area with a flag and was promptly removed by police.

While many in the crowd cheered, a handful of activists confronted Jones, who they accused of being “allies with white supremacists” for forming a coalition with the anti-government “boogaloo boys,” and claimed he works with police.
