Augustus Invictus held a Confederate Memorial Day rally this afternoon in Orlando, FL to protest the removal of the Confederate monument in Lake Eola Park:
“ORLANDO, Fla. – About a hundred people protested Saturday against the Orlando mayor’s decision to move a 100-year-old Confederate statue from Lake Eola Park to a nearby cemetery.
Augustus Invictus, who organized the protest at Lake Eola park Saturday afternoon, objected to Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer’s decision to move the monument to Greenwood Cemetery in mid-May.
“I do not appreciate some Black Lives Matter agitators coming down from New York to tell us what to do with our monuments,” he said during a speech. …”
Identity Europa and League of the South members were present.
According to the local media, there were about 100 people present at the rally. We’ve been told that no opposition showed up in Orlando. I’ve also heard from our people on the ground that the incident in Gainesville has been resolved. This is a pleasant surprise because we shouldn’t have to agree on everything to agree on opposing Antifas and defending our Confederate monuments.
