Reactions Across the State to Charlottesville Events
In Oakland, protesters shut down part of the 580 near Lake Merritt. They marched through oncoming traffic before locking hands and blocking the roadways for about twenty minutes. Meanwhile, to the south in Los Angeles, there were more subdued protests downtown.
Meanwhile, a California man was arrested for his role in the melee, organized by white nationalists. Nathan Damigo is the founder of the California-based white supremacist group Identity Evropa. On Saturday he tweeted that he was picked up by police on the scene. Before leaving for Charlottesville, Damigo told The California Report he was trying to set up events on college campuses around the country, including at UC Berkeley. He spoke to KQED during an earlier protest this summer about the need for high-profile, high-drama events as a recruitment tool.
