Groups hold peace rallies across CA after vehicle attack, violence in Charlottesville

Groups hold peace rallies across CA after vehicle attack, violence in Charlottesville

On Saturday afternoon, a Virginia State Police helicopter assisting in monitoring the protests crashed in Albermarle County. "Let us pray for peace", said Bishop DiLorenzo in the statement. A gray auto with OH license plates hit a crowd near the city's downtown mall, killing a 32-year-old woman.

"Go home", he said.

He then said that the driver of the auto was "honking their horn" and then "they were just, like, bulldozing through people".

Cruz called the violent clashes surrounding white nationalists and counter-protesters "acts of domestic terrorism". "No matter our colour, creed, religion, our political party, we are all Americans first", he said, adding that he'd like for his administration to "study" why such violence is occurring. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump.

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer stated that a vehicle plough into a group of counter-protestors during a gathering for the far-right wing, killing at least one person.

Rioting broke out in the centre of the town after a group of white supremacists protested the removal of a statue to the pro-slavery Civil War general Robert E. Lee.

Sweet 16 for Federer as he books Rogers Cup final berth
The junior Wimbledon victor and tournament wild card entered the week with three ATP-level wins and has added four more so far. Federer took the opening with both hands as he ruthlessly served out the set in the next game easily , clinching it 6-4.

Trump made a statement to the media earlier today, but he has been slammed for failing to denounce or even specifically mention any of the white supremacist groups involved in the demonstration, which was billed as a Unite The Right rally.

Before the Saturday rally, hundreds of white supremacists marched through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville on Friday night, waving torches and chanting "White lives matter", "You will not replace us", "Jews will not replace us" and so on. The driver was later taken into custody.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe had already declared a state of emergency in order "to aid state response to violence" at the rally in Charlottesville, which is about 160 kilometres outside of Washington, D.C. No good comes from violence.

20-year-old OH man James Fields has been arrested and charged with murder over the attack.

Addressing reporters, Trump refused to name white supremacists or any specific group, blaming the violence "on many sides".
