Candlelight vigil in Spokane for Charlottesville victims

Candlelight vigil in Spokane for Charlottesville victims

"We are calling on our friends, our community to join us for a vigil to mourn the death of the young woman who lost her life to the auto attack at the Charlottesville counter protests today, and the victims who've been brutally injured by this attack", organizers wrote in its Facebook.

Adding, "We stand FOR a community that has NO HATE".

The Facebook page said they are coming together because they will not accept what happened in Charlottesville as the "new normal".

Many held signs and candles showing the world they will not tolerate racism.

"It's important for people to have a place to come to support Charlottesville and the community", Canterbury, 41, said.

"The best thing people can do is to speak out", Canterbury said.

One of the speakers was Rep. Scott Peters, D-San Diego, who said that Heyer gave her life for the fight against hate.

Those who attended also honored the victims in Charlottesville.

Heyer died when a auto plowed into a group of people at the protests on Saturday.

It escalated on Saturday morning when hundreds of counterprotesters clashed with demonstrators attending the "Unite the Right" rally - an event that promised to be one of the largest gatherings of white nationalists in recent times.

Organizers say the goal is to send a message of peace. After hours brawls between the pro-rally far-right figures and anti-racism protesters, a sport auto ploughed into crowd against the rally, killing a 32-year-old local woman and injuring 19. One woman died, and at least 19 others were injured.

"We are all connected to each other and we have to stand up for each other", Galen said.
