Stone Mountain, Georgia – A viral video of hundreds of armed NFAC members march to exercising their 1st and 2nd amendments to protest the Confederate carving of Stone Mountain Park.
Saturday, July 4th, 2020 marked the 244th birthday of the United States. These armed protestors who go by the name, “NFAC (Not F*cking Around Coalition)” took it upon themselves to celebrate the freedoms that the United States of America was founded on by protesting the park. The protest was very peaceful and did not cause any disturbances.
In 1915, the Klu Klux Klan began to use the top of Stone Mountain as their regular meeting location for their gatherings. Stone Mountain Park was purchased by the state of Georgia, and reestablished as a public park and dedicated to the Confederate army. A memorial of the three Confederate soldiers: Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson, and Robert E. Lee is carved into the side of the mountain after the Civil War.
Today Stone Mountain Park is Georgia’s most visited attraction, and the city of Stone Mountain is approximately 73% Black.
