Hundreds of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and members of the alt-right descended upon the streets of #Charlottesville, #Virginia on Saturday for a “Unite the Right” rally. As clashes with counter-protesters intensified, police said the rally was declared an unlawful gathering and people were forced out of Lee Park. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency.
One person was killed and at least 9 others were injured when a car plowed through a group demonstrating against the white nationalists.
