Trump, Politicians Condemn White Nationalist Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia

Trump, Politicians Condemn White Nationalist Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia”

Earlier in the day before the fatality, President Trump had condemned violence that erupted between white nationalists and counter-demonstrators.

The president said that "what is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives".

"GLAAD and countless LGBTQ Americans stand firmly together with other marginalized communities to denounce these disgusting threats and cowardly fear tactics", Ellis told Variety.

City officials and police say they are prepared for any violence.

Tensions in the city intensified hours after the melee when at least one vehicle plowed a crowd of people gathered in a street two blocks from the park.

The route is significantly more affordable than the West Africa route through Libya and onto Europe. Strong waves in the Indian Ocean at this time of year make the crossing especially unsafe .

The president of the University of Virginia, Teresa A. Sullivan, said that she was "saddened and disrupted by the hateful behavior displayed by torch-bearing protestors".

A silver vehicle smashed into another auto, then reversed, ploughing through "a sea of people".

As of about 12:30 p.m., Charlottesville police reported that one person had been arrested and eight people had been treated for injuries by emergency workers. "I have directed them to coordinate with federal and local authorities and take every precaution necessary to ensure the safety of their personnel, the Charlottesville community and rally attendees".

The park used to be named Lee Park, after the Confederate general, but Charlottesville City Council voted to change its name in June.

A smaller group of counter-protesters showed up in opposition of the march, and were reportedly surrounded by white supremacists before fighting broke out. "The goal in moving the Unite the Right Rally from Emancipation Park to a larger, more accommodating space like McIntire Park had nothing to do with the content of the demonstrators' speech".

Other politicians didn't have issues calling out the people who were responsible.

The Saturday rally could become "the largest hate-gathering of its kind in decades in the United States", the rights group said. Local police at the scene declared the protest an "unlawful assembly", according to news site The Hill.

Katie Couric, who is in Charlottesville covering the rally for an upcoming National Geographic series, said that protesters attacked her crew with urine. "It's been going on for a long, long time", he said.

For many Americans, they are outdated symbols of racism, and have been mobilizing to have them taken down from public places.

On Friday the state's governor Terry McAuliffe in a statement called on Virginians to stay clear of the rallies, but by Saturday morning hundreds from both sides had already begun to skirmish.
