Protestors stage “die-in” in Carbon Hill

News

CARBON HILL, Ala., (WIAT) — Protesters staged a “die-in” and marched to Carbon Hill city hall after Mayor Mark Chambers refused to resign following controversial comments (see related headlines) at a council meeting Monday evening.

A “die-in,” is a form of protest where individuals lie on the ground motionless, simulating dead bodies. The “dead bodies” typically represent those “murdered” by organizations or people.

Chambers spoke with CBS 42 briefly after the city hall meeting. He says he doesn’t plan to resign.

“I might run again,” says Chambers.

The fallout comes after Chambers made controversial comments on Facebook.

The council did accept letters of resignation from two city councilors- McClain Burrough and Chandler Gann. They did not state their reason for resigning.
