Nazis, white nationalists, and other hate groups are marching in Charlottesville, Virginia ahead of a rally to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
Hours before the rally was scheduled to start, racists streaming into Charlottesville have been marching through the city, where they’ve been met by counter-protesters. Shortly before 12 p.m. on Saturday, Virginia’s governor declared a state of emergency and the city designated the rally an “unlawful assembly.”
