Vigils will mark US protester’s murder

Tuesday 15th August 2017

SOLIDARITY vigils are set to be held in northern England in memory of an anti-fascist campaigner murdered in the US state of Virginia.

Heather Heyer, 32, died when a racist drove his car at speed into a group of demonstrators opposing a rally staged by the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacists in Charlottesville on Saturday.

In Manchester, a solidarity vigil will take place today at St Peter’s Square, in front of the city’s central library, from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.

It has been organised by Greater Manchester Unite Against Fascism. For more details contact northwest@uaf.org.uk.

Another vigil will take place in Leeds tomorrow at 5pm, outside Leeds Art Gallery in the Headrow.

It is being staged by the city’s Unite Against Fascism, Black Lives Matter, Stand Up To Trump, and Stand Up To Racism groups.

James Fields, 20, has been arrested and charged with murder over Saturday’s attack, in which dozens of people were hurt.

Members of the Yazidi Sinjar Women’s Units (YJŞ) currently fighting the Islamic State [ISIS; neither Islamic nor a state] in its self-declared capital Raqqa [in Syria], have sent an exclusive photograph to The Region in which they commemorate Heather Heyer, the anti-fascist activist killed in Charlottesville: here.

MORE CEOs ARE QUITTING OVER TRUMP’S RESPONSE TO CHARLOTTESVILLE ” Three CEOs on the White House manufacturing council resigned in protest Monday over President Donald Trump’s botched response to a deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.” While Trump did condemn hate groups on Monday, his response has been considered too little, too late. [HuffPost]

THE CHARLOTTESVILLE CAR ATTACK SUSPECT HAD BEEN ACCUSED OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE MULTIPLE TIME James Alex Fields Jr.’s own mother had called the police on him at least three times. And the mother of Heather Heyer, who was killed when Fields Jr. allegedly drove a car into the crowd Saturday, has a powerful message. [HuffPost]
