UPDATE: Since Bree Newsome climbed the flag pole in front of the Capitol and removed the confederate flag her actions have inspired hashtags such as #FreeBree and #TakeItDown. Her actions have also inspired those we may least expect to come to her rescue. After Bree was arrested, Liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore posted on twitter an offer to pay bail and legal fees for the young activist.
Friends of @BreeNewsome – I will pay her bail money or any legal fees she has. Please let her know this. #Charleston #TakeDownTheFlag
He wasn’t the only one however ready to come her aide. An Indiegogo campaign has already raised more than $17,000 for Newsome and fellow activists protesting violence against black people and the taking down of the confederate flag. More details about her arrest after the jump.
