CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. USA. August 13th 2017. Vigil for the victims in the riots in Charlottesville on Sunday night. In the center Markus Martin, a close friend of the victim and the person flying in the famous photo of the attack by the car. He is surrounded by other friends of Heather, all dressed in purple for the vigil.
The rally occurred amidst the backdrop of controversy generated by the removal of Confederate monuments throughout the country in response to the Charleston church shooting in 2015. The event turned violent after protesters clashed with counter-protesters, which combined with the subsequent vehicle-ramming attack left over 30 injured
