Anti-fascist protesters mark the anniversary of last year’s violent clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Hundreds of students and left-wing activists took to the streets on Saturday, a year after a man with alleged neo-Nazi ties rammed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one and injuring about 20 others.
Heather Heyer was tragically killed one year ago in an act of domestic terrorism in Charlottesville, Virginia.
She was protesting the bigotry of neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and other white nationalists when she was plowed down by a car. She was 32 years old.

At one point, police officers in riot gear formed a line near the area where the rally was taking place, prompting many protesters to rush over yelling, “Why are you in riot gear? We don’t see no riot here.”
