Vigils held across New Hampshire in solidarity with Charlottesville”

A vigil for Charlottesville, Virginia, will be held Sunday in Tulsa.

Heather Heyer, 32, was was killed when a auto crashed into a crowd of demonstrators protesting against white supremacists in Charlottesville, according to news reports. Dozens more people were also injured from the incident.

Two Virginia State Police officers, Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-pilot Berke M.M. Bates were also killed Saturday after a helicopter assisting with the rally crashed outside Charlottesville, killing the pilot and a trooper.

Organizers of the Concord vigil said that although they are hundreds of miles away from Virginia, tonight is all about the country standing together as one. Moiseyev is founder of Central Valley Indivisible, a group "dedicated to progressive action", according to the group's Facebook page.

The vigil will begin at 8 p.m. along Northampton Street and South Main Street near the Free Bridge.

"People are really scared", she said. "We will not stand for KKK, for Nazi's to over run us", said Padilla.

Celeste Johnston, a 51-year-old from Fresno who works for the county as an office assistant, said she came to the vigil because it was right to point out a wrong. The group plans to march afterward to the statue of Confederate General Albert Pike in Judiciary Square "to denounce the symptoms of white supremacy in our midst". "We stand for American values".
