Occupy Oakland calls Saturday night rally in response to Charlottesville violence

The hastily arranged gathering was in response to violent events earlier Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"My heart is with the people of Charlottesville, especially those standing up to hatred, racism, and bigotry", Eric T. Schneiderman, the attorney general, said".

The woman was killed after police say 20-year-old James Alex Fields drove his Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counter-protesters as they walked in the opposite direction on the street. They rallied behind his promises to build a wall on the southern border, reduce the number of foreigners allowed into the country and pressure everyone in the country to speak English and say "Merry Christmas".

Several hundred counter-demonstrators were marching through the university town for a second day in opposition to a crowd of some 6,000 people attending a right-wing rally when the auto struck.

Fistfights and screaming matches erupted Saturday, barely 12 hours after a scuffle Friday night at the nearby University of Virginia between torch-bearing demonstrators and counterprotesters.

Addressing the fatalities that resulted from the day's events, McAuliffe again addressed those who he said "pretend" they are "patriots". "I urge all people of good will - go home".

"I saw at least two or three people fly over the hood of his vehicle and then he hit another auto that was parked in front of him", said a bystander.

A vehicle crashed into a group of protesters.

In an emotional news conference, Virginia Gov.Terry McAuliffe sent a message to the white nationalists who held the rally.

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".

"I have a message to all the white supremacists and the Nazis who came into Charlottesville today".

Meantime, Mr Trump addressed the "terrible" tragedy, speaking a press conference in New Jersey. On many sides. It's been going on for a long time in our country.

Trump constantly slammed Obama and Clinton during his run for the presidency for failing to label terrorist attacks as such. "Our hearts go out to their wives and children, and we stand by to support them during this hard time".

He did not answer questions from reporters after signing the bill, such as a reporter's request for an explanation of what Trump meant by "many sides". Bay Area united against white supremacy. "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. We are all Americans first". "Lets come together as one!"

After the election, in a November 2016 interview with The New York Times, Trump disavowed the movement and said he did not intend to energize the alt-right. "You're all among the best this nation produces". Authorities declared an unlawful assembly and police ordered people to disperse.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -Hundreds of people are facing off in Charlottesville ahead of a white nationalist rally planned in the Virginia city's downtown. Earlier, hundreds of white nationalists and counter-protesters chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles and unleashed chemical sprays on each other.
