Demonstrations throughout our listening area—in Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Cotati and Cloverdale—protested white nationalist activities in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend that resulted in three deaths. The outrage was stoked by President Trump's vague statements about the blame being spread "on many sides," and his refusal to immediately condemn the Nazis, KKK, and other alt-right members who led the marches there.

The slideshow above features signs and crowds in Santa Rosa, where a rally and march began at 4 pm in Courthouse Square.
