Several heavily armed protesters have gathered at Stone Mountain Park near Atlanta (Georgia state) on Saturday, July 4. Demonstrators demanded the removal of the giant Confederate rock carving in the park, which they deem to be racist. Most protesters wore face scarfs and black clothing, with several carrying military-type weapons, ammunition belts, and rifles. The location has been commonplace for white supremacist rallies in the past.
Further associated protests may occur in the coming days.
Individuals in the US are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
