Hundreds of white nationalists – and those who
oppose them -- were expected for a “Unite the Right” rally in
Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday after a federal judge’s ruling
Friday cleared the way for the event.
The judge’s ruling sparked a
pre-rally march Friday night on the University of Virginia campus,
resulting in clashes between marchers, protesters and police.
The unrest prompted Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a
Democrat, to place National Guard members on standby, and encourage
Virginians to stay away from Saturday’s event.
