Protesters Take to the Streets on Nights of Lights

Pastor Ron Rawls and hundreds of people were there to rally against two Confederate statues, and the city of St Augustine’s decision to keep them. Groups from Jacksonville also joined the march, which began at St. Paul A.M.E. Church and ended at the city’s main plaza during the Nights of Lights celebration. The protesters’ main goal was to be heard and impact tourism at perhaps the city’s biggest event of the year.
