White nationalist rally in Virginia turns deadly

Protesters clash in Charlottesville VA

A auto plowed into a crowd of peaceful counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017, killing at least one person and wounding dozens others.

The person who died when a auto smashed into the crowd, there were also the pilot and a passenger in a state police helicopter that crashed outside the city, Xinhua quoted Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe as saying. Col Martin Kumer, the Superintendent of Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, said that 20-year-old James Fields of OH has been charged with second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and failing to stop at an accident that resulted in a death.

Tempers flared at times during the march, with protesters decrying President Donald Trump and the white nationalist rally in Virginia, but there were also somber moments to mourn the victims of white supremacy, past and present.

Trump faced vehement criticism for his comments earlier on Saturday pinning blame for the violence in Charlottesville "on many sides" while declining to specifically condemn white nationalists.

But the reaction was different among Republicans from the South, where a sizable percentage of GOP voters support keeping the sort of Confederate monuments that the white supremacist groups rallied in Charlottesville to protect. False equivalencies between sides simply provides cover to the white supremacists seeking to take our country backwards and tear our communities apart.

No one on the ground was injured, it said.

Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah, furiously condemned the President, saying: "We should call evil by its name". We are stronger than you.

"Hate and division must stop, and must stop right now".

Governor Andrew Cuomo of NY made an official statement earlier today, saying that there are not "many sides" to the violence that unfolded in Charlottesville and rebuking Trump for his response.

A auto crashed into a group of protesters.

Members of white nationalist and other far-right groups had planned to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

University of Virginia Medical Centre spokeswoman Angela Taylor confirmed the death, while the mayor of Charlottesville Michael Signer said via Twitter that he is "heartbroken" to announce that a "life has been lost".

Trump added that "it has been going on for a long time in our country - not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama". My brother didn't give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home. A few hours after violent encounters between the two groups, a auto drove into a crowd of people peacefully protesting the rally.

Alt-right leader Richard Spencer and former Ku Klux Klan member David Duke attended the demonstrations.

"I'm not going to make any bones about it".

"You came here today to hurt people and you did hurt people, but my message is clear - we are stronger than you". "As one of the oldest and largest racial justice organizations in our country, we understand the human devastation discrimination brings, and the urgency of acting now to combat discrimination and hate". "I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists", he wrote. "Lets come together as one!"
