Ottawa-Outaouais IWW members will be offering our support and solidarity to those injured and killed resisting the violent right wing terror attack yesterday in Charlottesville with a candle-light vigil at 7PM tonight at the Human Rights Memorial (161 Elgin.)
An IWW contingent counter-protesting the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville were attacked by a white supremacist who drove through the crowds with their vehicle injuring many and killing one protester. Additionally, there are accounts of white supremacist groups terrorizing the streets with drive by shootings using vans and assault rifles.
We encourage everyone to come out and show your support for the victims and opposition to violent right ring terrorism.
A fundraiser has been setup to cover the medical costs for the many victims.
