WNC VIGILS LATE SUNDAY IN SOLIDARITY WITH CLARKSVILLE'S ANTI-WHITE NATIONALISTS

As tensions from the clashes boiled over, a driver rammed his vehicle into a crowd of protesters, killing one person and injuring dozens more.

"This is a serious loss for us". "It could have been one of us".

The event will feature a moment of silence for Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman killed during the violence in Charlottesville, songs and speeches.

Families came with children to light candles and stand in unity against hate.

Yesenia Padilla helped organize the vigil. Participant Claire Douglas said a member of her group was also injured when James Alex Fields, Jr. slammed his vehicle into the crowd in Charlottesville. "I think this kind of demonstration makes people think like I should just stay home, and I think ... that what we ... absolutely need to do is to be bigger than them, be more organized than them and show them we are the majority".

There was another anti-Trump peace gathering planned in Hendersonville on Main Street at 5 p.m., sponsored by politically liberal local groups who say they have invited city council and local clergy.

Organizers also hope to send a strong message to hate groups in Idaho that they are not welcome here.
