White nationalists staged a torchlit march on the campus of the University of Virginia on August 11 ahead of a planned far-right rally in Charlottesville on Saturday. Charlottesville’s Daily Progress newspaper reported that police declared the march an unlawful assembly and used pepper spray following clashes between the marchers and counter-protesters. This video shows the protesters marching and chanting “anti-white” and “death to Antifa”. Hundreds of white nationalists gathered in Charlottesville for the Unite the Right rally, which is the latest in a series of demonstrations opposing the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a park. A demonstration in Charlottesville over the statue led to violent clashes in May. Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer branded Friday’s march as a “parade” of “bigotry, racism, and intolerance”. Credit: Instagram/anonymous via Storyful
