CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL DAY PROTESTS

Members of the Mississippi Rising Coalition plan to protest peacefully outside the first judicial district courthouse in Gulfport this afternoon form three until five.
They aim to raise public awareness regarding what *they* say is ongoing institutional racism and systemic injustices faced by people of color with today being the confederate memorial day.
According to the MRC, this “holiday” is a deliberate agenda to perpetuate the harmful and unjust ideology of white supremacy.
A peaceful protest already took place this morning at the Forest County Circuit Courthouse in Hattiesburg this morning.
