White nationalists carry torches, shout racist slogans during march in Virginia

White nationalists carry torches, shout racist slogans during march in Virginia

The university's president Teresa A. Sullivan said in a statement that she strongly condemned the unprovoked assault on the UVA community.

A vehicle plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting a white nationalist rally Saturday in a Virginia college town, killing one person, sending at least 26 others to hospitals and ratcheting up tension in an increasingly violent confrontation. ('Blood and soil' is a Nazi-linked ideology based on ethnic descent (blood) and territory (soil)).

A large contingent of Charlottesville and Virginia state police in riot gear were stationed on side streets and at nearby barricades but did nothing to break up the melee.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a nonprofit that publishes an annual directory of "hate groups" in the U.S., called the rally "the largest hate-gathering of its kind in decades", saying it could be a "seminal point for the alt-right and extremist hate fringe." .

There are also multiple reports of pepper spray being used. Earlier in the day, police were involved in breaking up a conflict between the original protesters and those protesting the white nationalism protests. The city said two people were treated for serious but non-life-threatening emergencies from altercations by 10:30 a.m. Counter-protesters also flooded the area to demonstrate their disdain for the protesters' message. The reporter and other media outlets said journalists and residents had been threatened by some of the marchers.

Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine penned a extensive response on Facebook to Friday night's march.

The City Of Charlottesville approved a permit for the rally at McIntire Park, but there is a possibility that a large crowd of people could gather in the downtown, according to a local news website.

In his remarks, Trump mentioned the strong economy and "the many incredible things in our country, so when I watch Charlottesville, to me it's very, very said". "I want to urge my fellow Virginians who may consider joining either in support or opposition to the planned rally to make alternative plans". "Today, in 2017, we are instead seeing a cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism and intolerance march down the lawns of the architect of our Bill of Rights", Signer added.

He was joined by several lawmakers in condemning the violence.

Prior to Friday night's protest, VA Sen. The city is progressive and not at all a center of white nationalism.

The declaration will allow local authorities to request additional resources if needed.
