White supremacist terror in Charlottesville

The white supremacist terror in Charlottesville is another sign of the rise of the nationalist international

They carried torches and chanted hateful slogans against the black, Jewish, immigrant, and LGBTQ communities. A car ploughed into the crowd. A 32-year-old woman was murdered and 19 protesters were injured. And the US President, Donald Trump, made a shamefully calculated statement condemning the violence “on many sides.”
Trump was right that there are “sides” though: there are the bigots who shouted, “hail Trump!” on one side inciting hatred and violence, and the anti-racist counter-protesters who dared to rally in opposition.
Now is the time to stand up and make our voices heard. We know what side we are on.
We at DiEM25 stand in solidarity with the counter-protesters and with the victims of this act of vicious extremism. We stand up for a bold, transnational multiculturalism from below.
Europeans must link arms in a joint international front against hate and the rise of the nationalist international wherever it emerges.
As DiEM25 we are steadfast in our opposition to all forms of discrimination, misanthropy and hate.
