Vocable (Anglais) - - Politique -

A Unite the Right ral­ly took place in Charlottesville, Vir­gi­nia, on Au­gust 11–12, 2017. Its sta­ted goal was to op­pose the re­mo­val of a sta­tue of Ro­bert E. Lee from Eman­ci­pa­tion Park, which it­self had been re­na­med by Ci­ty Coun­cil from ‘’Lee Park’’ two months ear­lier. Protesters in­clu­ded white su­pre­ma­cists, white na­tio­na­lists, neoCon­fe­de­rates, neo-Na­zis, and va­rious mi­li­tias. Some of the mar­chers chan­ted ra­cist and an­ti-Se­mi­tic slo­gans, car­ried se­mi-au­to­ma­tic rifles, swas­ti­kas, Con­fe­de­rate bat­tle flags, an­ti-Mus­lim and an­ti-Se­mi­tic ban­ners, and "Trump/Pence" si­gns.
