ENGAGE: Write a letter to the editor | Comment on this story
As many as 250 counter-protesters flocked to Uptown Charlotte today to demonstrate against a neo-Nazi and Ku Klux Klan rally meant to protest undocumented immigration. Organizers of the counter-protest say they wanted to take a stand against hate.
The rally was planned by the Detroit, Mich.-based National Socialist Movement. The Southern Poverty Law Center has long tracked the group, which it says is the largest neo-Nazi organization in the country.
