Charlottesville Judge Sides With Alt-Right, Violence Breaks Out at Rotunda

American extreme right calls to 'unite' at rally

Ahead of a white nationalist rally on Saturday called "United the Right", white supremacists marched through the streets of the University of Virginia's campus Friday evening, carrying torches and yelling Nazi slogans like "blood and soil". The NHL's Detroit Red Wings released a statement denouncing the use of their logo at the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and saying they are considering legal action to stop it.

Sen. Bernie Sanders wrote, "The white nationalist demonstration in #Charlottesville is a reprehensible display of racism and hatred that has no place in our society". The gathering was created to protest Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a public park.

Witnesses say a vehicle plowed into a crowd of people who were protesting the rally, which was held by white nationalists who oppose the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee by the city of Charlottesville.

White supremacists take part a the night before the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville.

Charlottesville Police Captain Victor Mitchell said earlier that police expected between 2,000 and 6,000 protesters and counter-demonstrators.

"It is now clear that public safety can not be safeguarded without additional powers, and that the mostly out-of-state protesters have come to Virginia to endanger our citizens and property", said Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.

This morning, I was briefed for the second time this week by public safety officials in my cabinet, the Virginia State Police, the National Guard, and the Department of Emergency Management on their preparations for tomorrow's rally in Charlottesville.

Scheduled speakers, including white nationalist Richard Spencer, were not given police protection in the melee, he added. "These rights belong to the "Unite the Right" activists who will express their beliefs, and to the many others who disagree with them". Mimi Arbeit, an organizer of the planned counter-protests, rejected Kessler's argument that the rally was about freedom of speech.

Last night's march was sparked by a federal judge ruling that the Unite the Right rally could go on in Emancipation park as planned, according to Fox News.

Virginia's governor declared a state of emergency in Charlottesville as horrendous fights broke out.

In Conrad's opinion, he stated that in order for a plaintiff to be granted a temporary injunction, it must be proven the plaintiff is "likely to succeed on the merits", "likely to suffer irreparable harm" without it, the "balance of equities tips in his favor" and the "injunction is in the public interest".

- Terry McAuliffe (@GovernorVA) August 11, 2017#UniteTheRight rally could be the largest gathering of #whitesupremacists in over a decade. "We have determined that we can not do all of these things effectively if the demonstration is held in Emancipation Park".
