James Fields, the driver of the car that struck counter protesters on Aug. 12, killing Heather Heyer and injuring dozens more, appeared in the Charlottesville Circuit Court with three others for their preliminary hearings Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017. Jason Kessler, one of the organizers of the “Unite the Right” rally, and Susan Bro, Heyer’s mother, were in attendance. Kessler started several verbal altercations outside the courthouse, including two with city counselor Wes Bellamy where he threatened a lawsuit over Bellamy’s role in the failed rally.

I made my best photos of the year post public, link in bio. A white supremacist protester has his head gashed open during a brawl in a parking garage with anti fascist protesters after police clear the Unite the Right rally from Emancipation Park in Charlottesville, VA on August 12, 2017.

When #whitenationalists and #neoNazis wanted to march in #Charlottesville again, the #Virginia city said no. According to denial letters obtained by The Daily Progress, Charlottesville denied permits for five organizers, including counterprotesters, who wanted to organize events on Aug. 11 and 12, 2018. The letters said that such events would “present a #danger to #publicsafety” and “cannot be accommodated within a reasonable allocation of city funds and/or police resources.” “There is no person or legal entity willing to accept responsibility for the group’s adherence” to the city laws, the manager, Maurice Jones, wrote. #JasonKessler, who organized the “#UnitetheRight” march in August that led to tragedy, took to Twitter to promise to sue the “Communist government of Charlottesville” sometime “early next year.” Kessler said in a video posted on Monday that he and his supporters were the victims, blaming counterprotesters for the violence that broke out in August. This despite the fact that it was a white nationalist who drove a car into the crowd. Kessler also urged his followers to march anyway, even without a permit, but insisted that there should not be any violence at the event, to “prove a point.” In his application for a permit, Kessler said that the city only needed to keep the sides separate to allow the protests to happen, but Jones wrote in his denial letter that the city “does not have the ability to determine or sort individuals according to what ‘side’ they are on.” #foodforthought #rbg #problack #panafrican #blackisbeautiful #blackwomenrock #blackmenrock #blackgirlsrock #blackboyjoy #blackexcellence
