BLM, White Nationalists to Converge on D.C. on Aug. 12

On Aug. 12, the one-year anniversary of the deadly White supremacists rally in Charlottesville, Va., a White Civil Rights Rally will take place in Washington, D.C.

To counter the White Civil Rights Rally, the Washington, D.C. chapter of Black Lives Matter will hold a counter protest organized by Shut it Down DC. The White Civil Rights Rally will take place near the White House in Lafayette Park.

The website for Shut it Down DC released a statement, that read, “We are calling all anti-fascists and people of good conscience to participate in international days of action August 10 through August 12 and a mass mobilization in Washington. This is for Heather Heyer, Corey Long, Deandre Harris, ICE abolition, open borders, dismantling the prison industrial complex and ending the settler colonial system. We will confront fascism, anti-Semitism, Islamaphobia, White supremacy and state violence on August 10-12.”
