White supremacists had planned to hold a rally and torch march last night at Marshall Park in Charlotte, N.C. — but instead of tiki torches parading through Uptown Queen City, a diverse array of groups, including Indivisible Charlotte, city council members, a congressional candidate, and local Antifascists rallied in opposition to white supremacy.

During an open mic style forum on Thursday night, Charlotte City Councilwoman Lawana Mayfield defended local law enforcement while the antifascist group responded with chants, “FUCK THE POLICE!!! FUCK THE POLICE!!!”  When she urged members of the group to use their votes to battle injustice, a young man dressed in black with a red scarf and equipped with a bullhorn countered, “You can’t vote white supremacy away. It must be destroyed!!!”

During the fall, the Charlotte Observer reported that the white supremacist group, known as Anticom, encouraged its members through social media channels to take their “torches, guns, armor, gear and flags” to Charlotte. Anticom reconsidered on September 28 and cancelled their event, citing safety concerns.

Rally goers on Thursday night suspected the group would assemble for a surprise march.
