Oakland Marches in Solidarity with Charlottesville, Shuts Down 580 Freeway (photos)

Sunday Aug 20th, 2017 9:52 PM
After a fascist mob attacked a small groups of UVA student counter-protesters the night before, the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned deadly on August 12 when nazi enthusiast James Alex Fields of Ohio deliberately sped his car into a crowd of antifa, killing thirty-two year old anti-racism activist and Charlottesville native Heather Heyer. Nineteen others were injured in the attack, some critically. Separately, other anti-fascists were physically assaulted in the vicinity. Within hours, solidarity demonstrations and vigils sprang up across the country. In Oakland, hundreds of protesters shut down I-580 that night. These are photos from throughout, with short video clips interspersed to add a little more flavor.
