Boycott of the Confederate flag is a growing in the US, which has already involved the Internet giant Google, retailers Wall-Mart, Target and Sears, as well as online retailers Amazon and eBay.

Google said they are going to remove content presenting the Confederate flag from the service Google Shopping and from advertising on their sites. Other companies have announced that they will stop the sales of the flag, as well as products with its image, including t-shirts and belt buckles, according to US media.

The reason for such measures was that this flag was photographed in the hands of Dylann Roof charged with murder of nine people in the African-American church last week.

Confederate army, advocated keeping slavery during the Civil War in the United States in the XIX century, used this flag.

Earlier, the governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley called upon to remove the Confederate flag from a flagpole in front of the state legislature. Deputies on Tuesday voted to bring the matter up for discussion, reports the BBC.

US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday called on all companies to abandon the sale of goods with the picture of the flag. According to her, the flag of the Confederacy is a "symbol of our country's racist past that has no place in our future."

June 19, The Court of Charleston (South Carolina, USA) set bail at $ 1 million for Dylann Roof, who was arrested on suspicion of shooting in the local church, said on Friday the US media.

During the preliminary hearing, the judge explained that set bail for illegal possession of weapons, because he do not have the authority to determine the amount of bail on a murder charge.

In addition, at the hearing relatives of the victims of the attack were testified.

- I'll never be able to hug her, but I forgive you, - the daughter of one of the victims appealed to the accused.

On Wednesday, a man came to worship in the church, which is attended by afroamericans, remained there for about an hour, and then opened fire on the worshipers.

The victims of the attack were six women and three men, including the rector of the church, Senator Clementa Pinckney. Roof pleaded guilty.
