Hundreds hit Charlottesville Streets to Protest against Anniversary of Racially Charged "Unite the Right" Violence
August 12 , 2018
On Saturday, hundreds of students and left-wing activists hit the streets of Virginia’s Charlottesville just a day ahead of the "Unite the Right" protests. The protesters were protesting against the racially charged street violence brought by the “Unite the Right” rally one year back. White supremacists have planned to hold a “white civil rights rally” on Sunday on the anniversary of “Unite the Right” protests. Reports say police has denied a permit to hold a sequel of “Unite the Right” rally at Charlottesville, forcing them to relocate their protest march to Washington. Counter-protesters on Saturday chanted “Cops and Klan go hand in hand” as they accuse the police to go soft on white supremacists and tough on them.
