Representatives with the Northside Coalition of Jacksonville, Take Em Down Jax, and many others gathered in front of City Hall Tuesday. Many say its been a yearlong fight and won’t stop until there is change.
“Take them down! Take them down,” many chanted in front of City Hall Tuesday. “If you think that it is okay, you’re not trying to preserve history, you’re trying to preserve white supremacy, and that is inexcusable.”
They also argued a bill filed by State Representative Dean Black. House Bill 395: Historical Monuments and Memorials Protection Act; protects historical monuments and memorials from removal, damage, or destruction and allows the Governor to remove a local official who removes a monument.
