Protesters gathered in Keystone, South Dakota, on July 3, ahead of US President Donald Trump’s visit to Mount Rushmore for an Independence Day celebration.
Demonstrators were seen blocking Iron Mountain Road, leading up to Mount Rushmore, and were heard chanting anti-Trump and Black Lives Matter messages. Supporters of the region’s First Nations people, the Sioux Nation, also known as Oceti Sakowin, were heard lobbying for land rights.
The National Guard arrived to disperse protesters, with footage shared to social media showing confrontations between Trump supporters and protesters.
This footage shows a confrontation at the scene. A man can be seen tearing up a sign, while a second man shouts “white liberal guilt is a lie.” Credit: @madeleinedupre via Storyful
