Vigil held in Las Cruces for victims in Charlottesville attack

Car Attack in Charlottesville Ruled a Homicide. Police Chief Says Act Was 'Premeditated'

Hundreds turned out to Federal Plaza Sunday evening for a vigil to show solidarity with and mourn the tragic attack on demonstrators by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday. "As an activist myself who has attended many such events, I am heartbroken by the death of Heather Heyer and the police officers and hold their family, friends and community in my heart".

"We're moving towards a climate of equality", she said. "I felt the need to do something".

"So I end as I started by asking all Bereans to rise your voice in support of racial justice for all and continue to hold in all you do in our ideals".

"I believe I'm with a like-minded group when I say no hate, not in our town", Simms says.

Barr began lighting candles for people at the gathering. "I've been doing this stuff for 15 years and I've never seen anything like that", said Tinkleman.

"As this light spreads from person to person, notice how the light increases", Barr said. "It has nothing to do with the love of God that has been shared with us in so many ways".

Barr invoked the name of the woman protester killed during the rally Saturday. The vigil ended with a song.

Organizers said the objective of the rally is to rise up and not stand for fascism anywhere in the country after Saturday's tragic events.

"It's crucially important because if we're not careful, we could live 1861 all over again. Together we must resist".

We'd like you to share your thoughts and experiences with us. "There are other reasons why people voted for Donald Trump and they are not all bad". "Please join us in uniting our community against hate, racism and bigotry".

"To see there are people like you, who will do whatever they can to make sure you're safe because they know you will do that for them, is truly an fantastic thing", said Quartararo. "Rise up, otherwise they'll just mow us over".

State Senators Toni Atkins, of the 39th District, and Ben Hueso, of the 40th District, were the main speakers at the event, which also included other community leaders.
