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.
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.
