This Weekend Marks First Anniversary of Charlottesville White Supremacist Rally

HeadlineAug 10, 2018

And this weekend marks the first anniversary of the white supremacist gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia, which became the biggest and deadliest white supremacist rally in decades in the United States. The violence began on the night of August 11, when hundreds of white men bearing torches marched on the University of Virginia campus and attacked a small group of anti-racist protesters. The following day, up to a thousand white supremacists and neo-Nazis gathered in Charlottesville, attacking anti-racist counterprotesters and killing one woman, Heather Heyer. White supremacists have now planned anniversary rallies this weekend in Charlottesville and Washington, D.C. Anti-racist protesters are mobilizing for counterdemonstrations.
