Demonstrators in Charlottesville, Virginia, held a peaceful
vigil Wednesday evening in the wake
of the deadly violence the town faced last weekend.
During the “Unite the Right” rally on Saturday, held by white
supremacists and neo-Nazis to protest the removal of a
Confederate statue, a car driven by James Fields Jr. plowed
into counterprotesters, killing 32-year-old
Heather Heyer and injuring many others.
Speaking at a service Wednesday afternoon, Heyer’s mother
tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well guess what? You just
magnified her,” Reuters reported.
