Demonstrators in the Bay Area are planning to gather in Oakland on Saturday in response to a violent and deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The alt-right protest was also declared as an unlawful assembly. He has been identified by police as 20-year-old James Alex Fields.
The 20-year-old man, identified as James Alex Fields Jr., is from Maumee, the mid-west state of OH, according to Superintendent Martin Kumer with the Albermarle-Charlottesville County Regional Jail.
Officials in Charlottesville had approved the right-wing rally for August 12 - a protest against the city's decision to remove a statue of General Robert E. Lee, the Confederate military leader during the American Civil War.
"I have a message to white supremacists and nazis who came into Charlottesville today", Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe said at a televised press conference on Saturday evening. Later a helicopter responding to the violence crashed outside the city, killing two state police troopers.
The vehicle ramming killed a 32-year-old woman and wounded 19 people, including some with life-threatening injuries.
Oren Segal, director of the Anti-Defamation League's Center on Extremism, said several "white power" groups were present - including neo-Nazis and factions of the Ku Klux Klan.
"Angelenos and people everywhere condemn these acts of hatred, and are deeply saddened by the loss of life and injuries suffered today", Garcetti said.
Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer (D.) continued to criticize Donald Trump on CNN after saying violence in his city laid "right at the doorstep of the White House", saying Sunday there was no leadership coming from the president.
