Civil Right Protestors Clash With KKK

KKK tried to start a “White Lives Matter” rally which ended up with 3 people stabbed and 13 arrested.

Ku Klux Klan is a movement in the United States that have advocated through terrorism for white supremacy, white nationalism and anti-immigration. They normally aimed at groups whom they opposed.

The Klan held an anti-immigration rally on Saturday. They got surrounded by group of protestors who beat and kicked them violently.

Chaos started when the Klan members pulled up in a Black SUV with the sign “White Lives Matter”. The SUV window was smashed by the protestors which resulted in a quarrel between protestors and the Klan members.

The police officers had to quickly intervene, and later called for backup. The Klan members stabbed three protestors.

Both the protestors and the Klan members were taken into custody. However, the Klan members were later released because the police claimed they acted in self-defense.

Even though the Klan members were released there will still be further reviews to decide whether they should be filed with criminal charges.

On Monday evening, a crowd of civil right protesters gathered for a vigil against Ku Klux Klan.

It was a march where the protesters carried signs that had the inscription “Power through Peace”. This march was an intended peaceful march which was meant to bring peace and unity.
