Group Holds 'Take Back Lee Park Rally' in Response to Torchlight Protest ~ May 14, 2017

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Hundreds of peaceful protesters in Charlottesville are denouncing a demonstration by a group they call "white supremacists".

Sunday night’s rally in Lee Park comes in response to this scene that played out in the park Saturday where, dozens of people with torches, including a prominent white nationalist, gathered around the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee to protest the city's plans to remove that monument.

People started gathering in the park around 8 p.m. There was a sign hanging from the Lee statue that said "Black Lives Matter” and “**** White Supremacy."
