About 100 Gather in Plymouth After Violent Rally

Water Street, Plymouth

PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — About 100 people gathered in a coastal Massachusetts town following violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Three people were killed Saturday and dozens were injured as white nationalists protested the city’s decision to remove a Confederate monument. A car rammed into a crowd of protesters, killing a woman, and a state police helicopter crashed into the woods, leaving two troopers onboard dead.

Demonstrators rallied at a park in Plymouth on Sunday, with some carrying signs that read “no place for hate” and “stop pretending your racism is patriotism.” The demonstration began at around 4 p.m.
