Chaos Erupts at Charlottesville City Council Meeting

Protesters took over the weekly city council meeting, blaming city leaders for the deaths from the white supremacist rally.

Protesters seized control of the Charlottesville City Council meeting on Monday, upset at the city’s handling of the white supremacist rally two weekends ago.

Charlottesville Mayor Michael Singer tried to restore order, telling protesters they were “out of order” and would be removed.

As police moved to remove the first protester, the angry demonstrators erupted and shoving between police officers and protesters ensued.

Protesters then brought out a sign reading, “BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS,” to hold behind the city council. The city council left the room and cut the live feed when protesters began screaming obscenities.
