Violence Broke Out The Night Before Virginia Braces For White Nationalist Rally

IBTimes - Saturday, 12 August 2017  (1 week ago)
A large group of white nationalists marched in Charlottesville. The group carried torches and chanted through the University of Virginia campus, and briefly clashed with some counter protesters. The march came on the night before the “Unite the Right” rally on Saturday, in which thousands of alt-right activists from the country are expected to gather and attend. The rally is sparked by the city’s decision to remove a sculpture of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a public park. Currently, at least one from the rally has been arrested and several were being treated for minor injuries.
