White supremacists are back in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, and they went to the same place where a woman was killed in violent clashes.
The group was led by far-right figurehead Richard Spencer and blogger Jason Kessler gathered in Emancipation Park, with torches in hand.
Spencer posted a video on Twitter showing the protest, in which opponents of the removal of Lee’s statue could be heard chanting: “You will not replace us” and “We will be back”.

“Another despicable visit by neo-Nazi cowards. You are not welcome here!” Said Mr Signer
“We’re looking at all our legal options. Stay tuned.”
Mr Spencer tweeted back to the mayor: “It was great to be back in C’ville. We can catch up next time we’re in town.”
He also posted a video to Twitter following Saturday’s protest, calling it a “success”.
“Charlottesville 3.0 was a great success. It was a lot of fun,” he said. “We came, we triggered, we left.” He added that there were “no injuries, no major confrontations”.
Activists in the Virginia town claimed to have chased Mr Kessler, one of he people responsible for August’s deadly rally.
We found him and his friends and we chased him out of town tonight,” another person said. “That’s why he’s not in this room right now.”
