Around 30 people showed up at the secession rally in Montgomery, hung around for about an hour, and dispersed when it started raining:
“If support for the secession of Alabama from the United States can be measured in rally attendance, it’s safe to assume Alabama won’t be seceding any time soon.
More than 300 people were expected at the Alabama Flaggers Secession Rally, according to AF co-director Freda Mincey-Burton and the event’s Facebook page. On the steps of the Capitol Saturday, attendance peaked at 30 people — including event organizers — and rain showers after the first hour of the event sealed it as a failure. The 5-hour rally ended after about 2 hours. …”
More people reportedly showed up later this afternoon in between scattered showers, as the event was supposed to last five hours, but the weather wasn’t cooperating.
