Atlanta protesters deface Confederate Monument in Piedmont Park.

"Protesters in Atlanta angry with white supremacist violence in Charlottesville marched to Piedmont Park Sunday night, spray painting a statue of a Confederate soldier and chanting slogans decrying President Donald Trump.

There was virtually no police presence as demonstrators walked from Woodruff Park up Peachtree Street, snarling traffic as they went. When they arrived, some climbed the statue - which shows a Confederate soldier laying down his weapon at the end of Reconstruction - and defaced it. One protester was hurt by metal falling from the edifice."
