Charlottesville City Council Votes Again to Remove Confederate Statues
The Charlottesville city council voted to remove Confederate statues from public parks nearly four years after the Unite the Right white supremacist rally divided the Virginia city, The Daily Beast reported.
In April, the state Supreme Court dismissed an earlier injunction from a judge blocking the removal, thereby allowing the city council to restart removal attempts.
The city council voted unanimously to get rid of the two statues from city parks. The resolution includes a 30-day listening period on the outcome of the statues.
