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
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!
