How Black Lives Matters activists interrupted a popular tree-lighting ceremony


“No one is illegal” was the message activists had for holiday revelers at Atlanta’s annual tree-lighting ceremony.

The 56-foot tall tree atop the Macy’s Men’s store in Atlanta was lit with thousands of LED lights Sunday night as part of a holiday tradition. But in the middle of the lighting, activists from the Black Lives Matter movement and immigrant rights groups attempted to redirect the light away from the ceremony.

Merry one is illegal. LOVE- ATLANTA
