In response to the events in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, about two hundred people gathered for an anti-fascism rally in downtown Champaign Sunday.

Speakers included State Representative Carol Ammons. The Urbana Democrat also led the crowd in a rendition of “We Shall Not Be Moved.”

The gathering lasted for about an hour on One Main Plaza, where the crowd held signs and chanted against fascism and racism.

Illinois Public Media's Lisa Bralts was there and captured the photos you can see below:
