At least one was killed and 19 injured during the auto crash shortly after the police dispersed the "Unite the Right" rally in the downtown.

Virginia declared a state of emergency after violence erupted on the streets of Charlottesville. "No matter our colour, creed, religion, our political party, we are all Americans first", he said, adding that he'd like for his administration to "study" why such violence is occurring. "Take your hatred and take your bigotry". The driver has been identified as 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr. of Maumee, Ohio.

Organizers for Rise Up Doylestown say they're particularly sensitive to Saturday's violence in Virginia in the wake of recent racially charged incidents in their own community. A Virginia State police helicopter that was responding to the situation in Charlottesville crashed on Saturday, killing two officers on board. The helicopter had been part of the operation to monitor the clashes.

The Saturday rally was organized by a far right group to protest a plan to remove a statue of General Robert E. Lee and call for the protection of Southern Confederate monuments.

A flier for the event circulating on social media reads "Charlottesville, We Got Your Back" and "Bay Area United Against White Supremacy".
