45 minutes ago

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Hundreds of protesters are marching in Oakland, California to decry racism in the wake of deadly violence that erupted at a white nationalist demonstration in Virginia.

Protesters gathered Saturday night to hear speakers and then marched peacefully downtown, chanting and waving signs and banners.

Although a few cars were held up by the march, police say the demonstration is peaceful and there have been no arrests.

The hastily arranged gathering is in response to events earlier Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia. A car plowed into a crowd that was peacefully protesting a white nationalist rally, killing one person and injuring 19.

1. NBC: Protests Erupt Across the Country Against Violence in Va. White Nationalist Rally

(Published 3 hours ago)

More solidarity protests against the violence in Charlotteville are planned for Sunday

Groups have gathered across the nation in solidarity against the violence that occurred at a planned white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

James Alex Fields Jr., who is now in police custody, allegedly plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting the white nationalist rally Saturday in a Virginia college town, killing a 32-year-old woman, hurting dozens more and ratcheting up tension.

In New York City, Union Square was packed with people holding signs, some of which read "No To Racism and Bigotry" and "Impeach."

The city's Mayor Bill de Blasio called the violence by white supremacists "domestic terrorism."

3. I was alerted by email that there were going to be protests of support

at 7:00 local time at various cities at their city halls.

Future alt right rallies in San Francisco and Boston two VERY liberal cities. I hope the police outnumber them and actually do something unlike at today's rally.

4. Good!

Glad to see that people are waking up. It is sad that this is what it took however and that is having a fraud in The White House!
