From New York to California, people join together at memorials and rallies to condemn the violent attack in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12, 2017. One person was killed after white nationalists clashed with counter-demonstrators and a car plowed into a crowd near the scene of the earlier melee, the mayor of Charlottesville said.
The clashes on Saturday morning prompted the governor to declare an emergency and halt a rally over removing a Confederate general’s statue from a public park. (Reuters)
