Protesters against racial discrimination demolished three monuments in San Francisco, one of which belonged to Francis Scott Key, author of the text of the US anthem. It is reported by NBC Bay Area.

As it became known, the monuments of the 18th President of the United States Ulysses Grant and the missionary Junipero Serra suffered from the hands of demonstrators.

According to police, about 400 people gathered near the site where the monument to Grant was demolished, but there were no clashes between protesters and police, the channel reported.

Demolition of monuments to historical figures in the United States began amid protests against racism after the death of African American George Floyd during detention.
