In September, a group that expresses white supremacist and neo-Nazi sentiments announced it would hold a torchlight rally in uptown Charlotte. The group calls itself Anticom. A counter protest was quickly organized. All of this was to take place this Thursday night.

A group that expresses white supremacist and neo-Nazi sentiments has called off a march planned for Charlotte in December.  

The Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department used its weekly press conference Wednesday to address a “March against Communism” event in which white nationalist Richard Spencer is a scheduled speaker. Last week the group Anticom tweeted its intentions to have the march Dec. 28 in Marshall Park.

When a group calling itself Anticom announced it would be holding a rally and possible torch-light march in Charlotte in late December, reaction was swift.

And it's easy to see why.
