Violence has already erupted ahead of a planned rally where thousands of white nationalists are expected to gather for an alt-right protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday.

Two people were seriously injured in the clash, Virginia State police reported. A video appears to show the altercation, as a man is being dragged away by officials while a woman screams: ‘Don’t allow them to do this!’

Another woman with blood streaming down her face also pushes the man away from the scene of the fight.

The Unite the Right rally is being held at Emancipation Park and already hundreds were seen stomping through the city, wearing militia uniforms, waving flags and chanting ‘Blood and Soil’ as they made their way towards the event.

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer has denounced the ‘cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance march down the lawns of the architect of our Bill of Rights’ and warned for residents to stay away from the rally.

Still, counter-protesters flocked to the march in retaliation against the white nationalists, screaming: ‘We’re here, we’re gay, we fight the KKK!’

Alt right leader Jason Kessler led a torch lit procession through the University of Virginia campus on Friday night with burning torches campus, ending at the statue of Thomas Jefferson.

There the almost 200 white nationalists, neo-Confederates, and alt-right activists, heard chanting ‘white lives matter’ and ‘Jews will not replace us’, clashed with University of Virginia students who held an anti-racist protest, and were seen holding up signs which read: ‘VA students against white supremacists.’

    Hey Mayor Mike and the citizens of America, the “cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance march down the lawns of the architect of our Bill of Rights” has been going on since the election of President Trump and ALL citizens have been involved so don’t just blame whites.
