The Alt-Right Isn’t Alright to Los Angeles

About 200 protesters gathered in Venice Beach Saturday to celebrate diversity and voice their opposition to the alt-right. The rally was one of several weekend protests that took place across the nation. Originally the event was planned as a response to the right-wing “March on Google” scheduled in multiple cities over the weekend, but the latters’ organizers postponed the Google protests after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
