The March to DC from Charlottesville, Va., started with nearly 200 marchers Monday, but by Tuesday morning there were only 35 marchers. Over 200 people came together today to take a stand against bigotry and hate, march organizers said on Twitter. Were marching from #Cville2DC. Join us: cville2dc.us.
The overnight rains were enough to keep all but about 35 from marching Monday morning, the day after the pep talk when police escorted the group from Emancipation Park downtown Sunday.
We have started the day! the group tweeted shortly after 10:00am. We have about 35 folks marching against white supremacy.
Despite the drastic decrease in numbers, the group still declared a victory, saying not rain nor sleet nor snow nor hail will stop us from marching from #Cville2DC.
The march was planned as a direct response to the Unite the Right rally held earlier this month in which protesters and white supremacists clashed, resulting in 19 injured and one dead in the violence that followed. This is the time to confront white supremacy in our government and throughout our history, the group says on its website about the march. We demand that President Trump be removed from office for allying himself with this ideology of hate and we demand an agenda that repairs the damage its done to our country and its people.
The group planned out the route that takes the remaining marchers north on US-29, until they reach Interstate 66. They will then make their way to downtown Washington, D.C., where the march will end. The 10-day march will begin at 9:30am each morning, and vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meals will be provided. In addition, the marchers will be provided with housing, and a security detail will follow the group, according to the groups website.
I knew they were full of manure.
If they make it to DC, they’ll be forgotten - that is, if they show up there in the first place.
why are they doing this when some many people are suffering in Texas ???
how insensitive, how disrespectful,
how lacking in EMPATHY...
Do you remember those clowns who took the double decker bus and attempted to drive from a Western Europe to Iraq to human shields?
It was hilarious. The issues they encountered along the way was slapstick gold..
I think they're loads of laughs anyway.
One word: Harvey.
It wiped their march off the front pages.
Call it an Act Of God, if you like. Life’s funny.

Another unfortunate result of Global Warming. Or maybe it was Russian interference. These things are very complicated.
Being anti-something never has the power of being pro-something better. And that’s a hole our modern left has fallen into. It knows it hates a lot of stuff, but what does it love? That’s a mystery.
These are the Occupy Wall Street people thinking that a new moniker and a new focus would make us think they were a different organization altogether.
WHEN they get to DC, there will be more people there claiming to have participated in the march than there were hippies at Woodstock.
The snowflakes couldn’t handle a mere deluge. ;-)
How will they cope with the humidity and the heat?
As long as the marchers pick up empty beer cans along the road, this march will be a good thing to stop global warming and save the aluminum trees and penguins.
For some strange reason, that line made me think of the smiling face of Gator McKlusky.
Most of them look like they’re in regular street clothes and probably haven’t been on a hike in their life.
This will be amusing.
Are Mitt Romney and McCain taking turns driving?
I guess Mommy didn’t pack an umbrella for them.
Like KKK are shadowing them in hooded uniforms with burning crosses and torchlights.
