An estimated 400 counter-demonstrators gathered in Knoxville, Tennessee to protest less than two dozen demonstrators at a white separatist rally at the Fort Sanders Confederate memorial, which some have called to remove, the Knoxville News-Sentinel reported.
Police officers and barricades separated the two sides. One organizer carried a sign reading, “Stand Against Leftist Hate” to the hisses and boos of counter-protesters, the paper reported. Photos showed them holding Confederate flags.
A woman who was not yet identified was arrested when she attempted to crash the counter-protester side late Saturday afternoon, according to local media. (Reuters)
