Nearly two months after the white supremacist rallies held in Charlottesville, Virginia, alt-right protesters once again gathered on the city’s streets last Saturday night. The 50 individuals in attendance marched toward Emancipation Park, home to the statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. The demonstrators walked through downtown Charlottesville, torches in hand, repeating the mantra “You will not replace us.”

Police estimated that the rally lasted about five to 10 minutes, and when the gathering was over, the group left the city in a tour bus.

Leading white supremacist Richard B. Spencer was a key speaker at the march. In a video he posted on Twitter, Spencer called the rally a “great success” and a “model that should be repeated.” The group stated that this would not be the last of their protests. “We’re back and we’re going to keep coming back,” one speaker said.

Charlottesville mayor Mike Signer condemned the protest by tweeting, “Another despicable visit by neo-Nazi cowards. You’re not welcome here! Go home!”

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe also denounced the neo-Nazi demonstration, and said that officials were “monitoring this situation” and would resist “these racists and their message of hate.”
