Flag Protest

NPR's Adam Hochberg reports from Columbia, South Carolina, on the latest demonstrations over whether the Confederate battle flag should continue to fly over the state capitol. Thousands of protesters rallied outside South Carolina capitol yesterday. As opponents arrived at the south steps of the Statehouse after a five-day, 120-mile march from Charleston to protest the banner, flag supporters demonstrated on the north side.
