On Thurs. Nov. 8, the corner of King and Calhoun streets was the site of a peaceful protest in response to President Donald Trump's firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. At one point, more than 120 people crowded around the fountain at Marion Square and exercised their first amendment rights.
The Charleston demonstration was part of protests coordinated nationwide over concerns about Trump interfering with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign and its involvement with Russia interference in the 2016 election. Although Trump's actions were the cause, the subject of many of the signs was U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and his reaction to Sessions' firing.
