Black Lives Matter activist fatally shot in New Orleans

Muhiyyidin Moye the leader of the Black Lives Matter movement in Charleston was shot to death in New Orleans his family says

A Black Lives Matter activist who was filmed on live television jumping over a police line and grabbing a Confederate Flag in Charleston has been shot dead.

On a GoFundMe page set up by the family, his niece Camille Weaver said there are no more details about his killing and the family are attempting to raise money to transport his body back to Charleston. You can donate to the GoFundMe now. They spotted a black mountain bike across the street "covered in blood along the right side of the bike", the report said.

"We are lost right now", said Moye's sister Kimberli Duncan."But we are going to find our way".

The national Black Lives Matter movement Moye helped lead began in about 2013 in protest of the fatal shootings of black people, primarily by police.

On Tuesday, several dozen activists chanted anti-Semitic slogans at a rally in front of his presidential palace. They carried a banner that said, "Take off your yarmulke".

Following the news Tuesday that Moye had died, Thomas Dixon, a pastor and political activist, remembered Moye as a "brother" and "soldier".

There were several people tonight who say they are committed to continuing his legacy in the fight for justice, education and building up the community.

Tributes mourning the loss of the community leader have also been pouring in across social media, with one friend writing on Facebook: "The last thing he said to me was that he was doing community work out of town and that he was learning so that he could come back to Charleston and help empower people".

Moye's death occurred during a particularly violent stretch in New Orleans.

Trump's wife, Melania, accompanied him to OH aboard Air Force One but peeled off to visit Cincinnati's children's hospital. Trump took a toddler in her arms briefly before moving to tables where children were making crafts and playing games.

"I'm always saddened to hear about any young person who loses their life in the mean streets of New Orleans", Malcolm Suber, a coordinator for Take 'Em Down NOLA, a group that advocates for the removal of confederate monuments in New Orleans, said of the activist's death.

His family started a GoFundMe page asking people for support for his funeral services and the campaign has so far, in less than one day, received nearly double the set goal of US$7500.

Last year, media widely reported how Moye was arrested after he attempted to take a large Confederate battle flag from a protester waving it in downtown Charleston.

The incident was caught on camera during a live report. It happened last February outside of a speech by activist Bree Newsome at the College of Charleston.

It's likewise filling in backstory for a character that many fans consider sacrosanct ( see: "Han shot first"). The trailer has a heist feeling similar to Rogue One with less altruistic inspirations.

On February 22, 2017, Bree Newsome - the woman arrested for scaling a 30-foot flagpole and removing a Confederate flag at the SC statehouse in 2015 - was addressing a crowd that included members of Black Lives Matter as well as protesters from the state's Secessionist Party.
