Group of UVA alumni sends letter following rally and violence

Black Lives Matter Group Rallies in Union Square in Response to Charlottesville Violence Group of UVA alumni sends letter following rally and violence

The college town of Charlottesville, Virginia, erupted into violence over the weekend at a large gathering of white nationalists and counterprotesters.

A rally was held in Toronto on Monday to protest the weekend violence in Virginia that saw one woman killed and almost 20 others injured.

Despite having said in an interview with Time on Saturday that whoever drove their vehicle into the group of counter-protesters "did the wrong thing", Kessler also said he felt the white supremacists had been the victims.

Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas confirmed during Govenor McAuliffe's press conference that there were 35 injuries during the White Nationalist Rally in Charlottesville Saturday afternoon. He was one of several Republican senators who squarely criticised Trump on Twitter on Saturday. "Facebook does not allow hate speech or praise of terrorist acts or hate crimes, and we are actively removing any posts that glorify the horrendous act committed in Charlottesville".

One of the organisers of the far-right rally that descended into deadly violence in Charlottesville was chased away by protesters as he tried to give a press conference.

"People need to wake up, recognise that and resist it as fearlessly as it needs to be done", said Carl Dix, a leader of the Refuse Fascism group organising demonstrations in New York, San Francisco and other cities. He did not specify when.


Authorities said 19 other pedestrians suffered injuries ranging from serious to minor.

The Virginia State Police charged Robert K. Litzenberger, a 47-year-old man from Charlottesville, with misdemeanor assault and battery Sunday.

White supremacists appeared emboldened by Trump's failure to explicitly condemn their actions. "We encourage you to bring your families as we gather together to show that as Americans we can come together and stand up in love and solidarity".

The rally stemmed from a long debate in the US south over the Confederate battle flag and other symbols of the rebel side in the Civil War, which was fought over slavery.

In Seattle, police arrested three men and confiscated weapons as Trump supporters and counter-protesters converged downtown. One person was killed and at least two dozen were hurt. Torch-wielding white nationalists also demonstrated in May against the removal.
