ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Protesters gathered in Rock Hill at York Tech on Friday and plan to gather on Saturday as they protest the Sons of Confederate Veterans convention.
About 50 people marched across the parking lots with signs in hand, rallying for unity and support of each other in opposition of the Confederate flag. Friday and Saturday at York Tech, the Sons of Confederate Veterans are hosting their annual convention.
"We have reached out to them more than once," said Leyland Summers with the Sons of Confederate Veterans. "I have, my Heritage Operations Chairman has, we've reached out to them more than once and we get no response. But yeah we're willing to meet with them anytime they want to."
The convention continues Saturday at 9 a.m. and the group of protesters plan to be out once again.
