Rescue workers assist people injured when a auto rammed through the crowds.

Tonight's rallies like this one are condemning the white nationalist rally that began this morning in Virginia and the death of a counter protestor after witnesses say a vehicle drove into the group.

Like other politicians, he noted the First Amendment protects the right to free speech but he also stressed at the same time that "violence, brutality and murder" have no place.

One of the three people arrested in Charlottesville, Va., during what is believed to be the largest gathering of white nationalists this decade is from Chattanooga, according to Virginia State Police.

The nationalists were holding the rally to protest plans by the city of Charlottesville to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

His comments were criticised for not specifically denouncing the white supremacists while condemning the "display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides".

President Donald Trump has been harshly criticised for his inadequate and "unpresidential" response to the deadly attack that took place earlier today in Virginia, following a white nationalist rally in the city of Charlottesville.

"Go home. You are not patriots".

A 32-year-old woman died and 19 people were injured when a auto plowed into a group described by a witness as "anti-racist protesters" near the intersection of 4th and Water streets downtown, officials said.

Many said they wanted to send a message to Washington and the White House.

The University of Virginia Health System said it was treating 19 injured people from the crash, five of whom were in critical condition.

President Donald Trump has come under fire, including from fellow Republicans, for his apparent refusal to criticize far-right hate groups. In response, a man from OH plowed down anti-white-supremacist protesters with his auto. On Saturday afternoon, a Virginia State Police helicopter assisting in monitoring the protests crashed in Albermarle County. "We don't need that right now in this country", Walsh said of what happened in Virginia. "Let's come together as one!"
