Protesters gather for another day following the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, VA that culminated with several injuries and the death of a counter-protester. A group of around a hundred people protested outside LAPD headquarters Saturday night, and today's gathering outside City Hall is expected to attract hundreds more. The event is organized by the L.A. arm of Refuse Fascism L.A. and is among several nationwide demonstrations and vigils against the violence and racism in Charlottesville.

Michelle Xi, an organizer with Refuse Fascism L.A., told the L.A. Times "[w]e’re here to say, ‘No, we're not going to normalize these Nazis and how they feel emboldened." Protesters started arriving at City Hall at 2 p.m. Sunday and the rally is expected to continue throughout the afternoon.
