Columbus group hosts "No More Slavery" march Saturday

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The American Freedom Society and the Columbus Black History Museum and Archives hosted the  "NO MORE SLAVERY March and Rally" to elevate the awareness of slavery and loss of citizenship as punishments for crimes in Columbus, Georgia.

The group said since 1828, Columbus has profited from slavery. Slavery and citizenship is governed by the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution and the Civil Rights Act of 1866. The group claims these federal laws annul the freedom and citizenship of convicted felons living in the United States.

They hope to stop the crime in Columbus so it will stop the slavery and sustain 1st class citizenship. The group marched from the Muscogee County Jail to the Government Center. The rally consisted of local activist and singers.
