The Winston salem council gave notice to the DOC to move their Statue by the end of the month or they will declare it a public nuisance!

Now the DOC is fighting back and both sides are digging in for a court battle.

I think the mayor thought they would go quietly into the night and accept the city's offer to pay for the move to the Old Salem Cemetery and place among the 36 confederate graves there.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Supporters of a Confederate statue in North Carolina are planning a rally after the city where it stands ordered its removal.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports a new group called the Heirs to the Confederacy plans to meet Jan. 13 at the spot where the now-toppled "Silent Sam" statue stood at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and then ride to Winston-Salem.
Winston-Salem has told the United Daughters of the Confederacy to remove the monument by Jan. 31 or face a possible lawsuit. After two vandalism incidents in less than 1 ½ years and confrontations over Confederate monuments elsewhere, the city attorney believes it creates a public nuisance.
The city has offered to pay for the statue's relocation to a cemetery, but the UDC says it will fight the effort.

When are they going to start digging up confederate soldiers to get rid of them?

True.

You know what really sucks?     How would you like to be the economic development / business recruitment guy in Danville, Wytheville or other VA cities where they are flying those gigantic confederate flags?   It has to be killing their efforts to attract businesses.....

And many of the people trying to lead the economic development are black business/community leaders.
