(Maumee, OH) There’s a rally scheduled tonight in front of the Maumee branch library in response to what organizers are calling “white terrorism.”
Organizers want white rally participants to even form a human barrier for minorities to allow them to voice their thoughts and concerns about this past weekend’s fatal incident in Virginia.
A Toledo public schools board candidate is among the organizers of the so-called “March Against White Supremacy,” which is set to start at 7 p.m.
The Maumee man behind the apparent terrorist attack during a white supremacist rally in Virginia will face a judge today. James Fields Junior is charged with second-degree murder, accused of plowing his car into a group of counterprotesters. One person was killed and 19 others were hurt.
Fields' mom told CNN she was shocked by her son's political activities and his alleged actions. Samantha Bloom told CNN she knew James Fields Junior was going to a rally in Virginia this past weekend, but didn't know it was a white supremacist event. Bloom says she assumed he was attending a pro-President Trump rally.
