Spokane citizens have organized a protest today outside of City Hall at 5:30 p.m. titled, “Down with the White Nationalists” in response to the violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.
On Saturday White Nationalists gathered in Charlottesville for a “Unite Right” march, where they were met with counter protesters. The events turned violent and one person was killed and 19 injured when a car plowed into the counter protesters.
According to an announcement, today’s protest is a way to urge Spokane citizens to speak out, “We cannot just continue to stand by and watch our communities of color, and LGBT community be targets of bigotry.”
Another rally was held Sunday, also in response to the weekend violence. Hundreds attended that gathering, which included speakers, prayer and a moment of silence.
