Your reactions: City Council votes 6-1 to remove Confederate monuments

After two hours of public comment and some emotional speeches by councilmembers, the New Orleans City Council today voted 6-1 to declare four Confederate monuments on public land to be a "nuisance," clearing the way for their removal.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu, who has been pushing the ordinance for months, spoke to the council about his reasons and engaged in a testy back-and-forth with Council Vice President Stacy Head, who ended up being the sole 'nay' vote on the matter.

Meanwhile, New Orleans Twitter was atwitter with comment after the vote. Some of your reactions:
