At noon today a massed rally of pro-White activists will begin in Charlottesville, Virginia in protest at the decision of the city council earlier this year to remove the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a downtown park. The park, originally named Lee Park after Robert E. Lee, has accommodated the statue for almost 100 years. Recently however the anti-White city council opted to strip the city’s monuments of any vestige of White heritage, provocatively renaming the park, Emancipation Park, and announcing the intention of removing the statue of Robert E. Lee.
Today’s ‘Unite-the-Right’ rally has been organised by local White activist Jason Kessler together with a consortium of White advocacy groups and individuals including Matthew Heimbach of the Traditionalist Workers Party; Andrew Anglin of the Daily Stormer website; Richard Spencer of the Alt-Right; the libertarian Augustus Invictus; and high-ranking members from the National Socialist Movement. The rally will be to protest against the removal of Lee’s statue and against replacement level immigration that is dispossessing White people of our traditional homelands all over the world.
Originally the demonstration was expected to attract approximately 400 demonstrators, but there has been an immense response and city officials are now preparing for an attendance closer to 4,000. Even this figure would appear to underestimate the strength of feeling amongst White Americans and their support for the demonstration.
Counterdemonstrations are planned by a rag-bag collection of anti-White groups and students from the University of Virginia, and by the Southern Poverty Law Centre (SPLC), the US equivalent of Hope-Not-Hate here in the UK, which malevolently monitors and attempts to sabotage the legitimate activities of pro-White groups. An SPLC spokesperson has warned the authorities in Charlottesville that today’s rally could be ‘‘the largest gathering of its kind in decades in the United States.’’
Earlier this week, city officials declared that the protest should be moved to McIntire Park, a little more than a mile from the city’s downtown core, because of concerns about crowd size and the ability of the police to ensure public safety. However Jason Kessler said in an interview on Tuesday that the event “is absolutely not changing venues.”
“The genesis of the entire event is this Robert E. Lee statue that the city is trying to move, which is symbolic of a lot of other issues that deal with the tearing down of white people’s history and our demographic replacement,” Kessler said.
Richard Spencer who earlier led a torch-bearing rally at the Lee statue in May of this year and who will be speaking at today’s rally, says “The removal of the monument is a metaphor for white dispossession and the erasure of our history and culture and identity.”
It would appear that White nationalist groups in the United States have realised the potential they have when they act in unison and unite against the enemies of our people. We wish them well and we hope that British nationalist groups follow suit and participate in the convergence process towards movement wide unity that Western Spring are championing here in the UK.
