Protesters target Confederate flag after Charleston killings

Organizers called the event a “warm-up” for what they hope will be an even bigger anti-flag protest, also in front of the colonaded State House, on the Fourth of July holiday. The Confederate flag is not a symbol of Southern pride but rather a symbol of rebellion and racism,” it said.
