Bree Newsome, a 30-year-old African-American woman, was arrested at the state Capitol Saturday after scaling the 30-foot flagpole and unhooking the Confederate flag.

I come against you in the name of God. This flag comes down today.” Tune in to Democracy Now! for our special report from South Carolina.
