Hundreds gather in downtown Milwaukee to protest white supremacy
The scene was peaceful in downtown Milwaukee as hundreds gathered to rally against racism and white supremacy Saturday afternoon.
Hundreds gathered near O'Donnell Park with a simple message: "racism will not be tolerated in our country."
Chris Krasovich of Pewaukee was in attendance Saturday afternoon.
“The message of white supremacy, the message of racism, and hatred, and anti-Semitism has no place here," Krasovich said.
Today's event was exactly one week after the attack in Charlottesville, Virginia where a man plowed his car into a crowd of activists counter-protesting a conservative rally.
An estimated 500 people gathered at today's event in Milwaukee.
