Sacramento’s Solidarity with Charlottesville Unity March


Sunday, August 13, 2017

With Crowd Estimates from 1000 to 2000. Sacramentians marched in solidarity with Charlottesville, Virginia

The march began at City Hall and ended at the State Capitol


As in nearly every march,vigil the majority of the people were there to support Charlottesville, others voiced local issues.

 

Most of the anger was directed toward local politicians. Mayor Darrell Steinberg was the eye of the Storm. From shootings of unarmed men in the city, to laws that seem to target the city’s homeless there were many angry voices.  Just as the shouting, and anger was changing the tone of the evening. some members of the crowd began singing

“Amazing Grace”

Peace

 

For many, the night was about Heather Heyer who was killed by a White Supremacists in Charlottesville.

 

There were a couple of Anarchist who stood out in the peaceful crowd as they were dressed in full combat mode, wearing the traditional masks.  One of the Anarchist asked me not to take her picture was visibly disappointed.

(No rumble tonight sister!)

These are Warriors of Peace. Different hues, cultures, backgrounds, Sacramentians.

Hate isn’t welcome here! 

“Sacramento Proud”

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
