White supremacist rally scheduled for Washington D.C. in August on the anniversary of the murder of 32-year-old Heather Heyer at Charolettesville Virginia nazi rally
Just 60 days after local Virginia newspaper The Westmoreland News printed Ku Klux Klan recruitment flyers on its front page amidst a story of how recruitment DVDs were being found in the town of Colonial Beach, Virginia, white supremacist leaders have managed to organize a demonstration nearby in Washington D.C., and have already received preliminary approval from D.C. government organization the National Park Service.
The demonstration will happen on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville Virginia white power rally, officially titled Unite The Right and organized by alt-right activist Jason Kessler, that resulted in the murder of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, which also injured over a dozen other anti-racist protesters.
Heyere, who was protesting the white power demonstration, along with hundreds of others, was struck by a car driven by a self-proclaimed neo-nazi named James Alex Fields Jr., a 20-year-old from Ohio who reportedly had expressed sympathy for Nazi Germany during his time as a student at Cooper High School in Union, Kentucky.
There are rumors that Fields confessed to first degree murder, but have not been substantiated by Storm Politics. His trial is set for November 2018.
