EDIT: We spent A LOT on and in Charlottesville and are trying to recoup funds while also trying to build in funds for next time. Thanks so much for those that are helping us fund raise. This is so important! In the wake of the Charleston Massacre in 2015, the Confederate flag saw a drastic change in social tolerance, and its removal from public institutions sparked widespread reaction from scores of White Southerners, even leading to further terrorizing and violence. Donald Trump's campaign and election saw these fires stoked further, now emboldening the more explicit White Supremacist dialogue that so many had attempted to distance the flag from a year earlier.

In late April of 2017, the city council of Charlottesville, Virginia voted to remove its statues depicting Confederate generals Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, and rename the downtown parks that hosted them as Justice Park and Emancipation Park, respectively. Local Confederate advocates such as the VA Flaggers and politicians like Corey Stewart had already inserted themselves into the dialogue, but they did not stop when the City's decision was cast.

With the assistance of local, self proclaimed white activists a court injunction wasfiled to challenge and halt the removals, and only a few weeks later, White Power figureheads from across the U.S. descended on Charlottesville's parks unannounced for a day of rallies and photo-ops that held national spotlight, using torches in an attempt to terrify locals, in a calculated move to insert themselves into the statue conflict. Since May, the people of Charlottesville have been dogged by intermittent rallies, harassment, stalking, threats, and outright violence from these forces, all the while fighting to resist this fascist creep.

Just two weeks ago, on July 8th, the infamous Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan held a rally in Justice Park. Many from the city and across Virginia assembled for a large scale peaceful counter-demonstration that sought to block the hate group from entering the park. While the Klan managed to muster 40 people into the park under heavy police protection, over 1500 anti-racists filled the park and surrounding streets, drowning out their insults and looking to give them the boot all the way to their cars. This time, over 100 police led a violent and one-sided offensive against those protesting white supremacy that included 23 arrests.

As the far-right and so-called Alt-Right's campaign in Charlottesville continues, August 12th has been set for what they hope to be a culminating event, a rally to "Unite the Right" in Emancipation Park. The rally’s roster includes some of the Alt-Right’s most notorious personalities, who have assumed their place at the leadership of a violently egotistical “movement”; Richard Spencer, Nathan Damigo, “Baked Alaska”, Matthew Heimbach, Augustus Invictus, and others. 

They are counting on even greater numbers of alt-righters, Neo-Nazis, white nationalists, neo-confederates, militia groups, and even biker gangs to converge from all corners of the country, with aims not only of unification, but of violent retribution against those who oppose them.

However, in these last weeks leading up to the big event, the right’s alliances are crumbling and many supporting groups have even taken to denouncing the rally. This may be an opportunity to divide the right far more than unite it.
