National Action Network makes another demand for Confederate flag emblem to be removed

GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) -

The National Action Network made a second demand on Monday for a Confederate flag emblem to be removed from a sign in Goose Creek.

The emblem is sponsored by the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

The NAN says Goose Creek's mayor has refused to meet with them on the issue.

A spokesman for Mayor Michael Heitzler says Heitzler is "standing pat" and will not have the emblem removed.

The National Action Network says it will attend Tuesday night's city council meeting hoping to be heard.

"The semblance of that flag has killed so many of my people and that flag does not speak for me and doesn't speak for the rest of those folks who are standing behind me. So as far as I'm concerned, it needs to come down," Goose Creek National Action Network president Bryan Sharp said.

The NAN also is demanding a similar emblem to be removed in Mt. Pleasant.

State National Action Network President Elder James Johnson says town officials have agreed to meet with them this week.
