The spontaneous, intimate prayer circles that formed outside the Emanuel AME Church the night of the horrific #CharlestonShooting have since been displaced in the streets by a rally to have the Confederate flag taken down all across South Carolina, particularly at the State House.
Mashable’s Colin Daileda and Buzzfeed’s Joel D. Anderson were in Columbia, S.C. today to cover the #TakeItDown rally.

Nice of MoveOn.org to pitch in with some preprinted protest signs. And Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin made an appearance as well.
Professional agitator DeRay Mckesson has already compiled an inventory of the impediments to the literal taking down of the Confederate flag in Columbia.
Your country needs you, DeRay. Climb.
