Rounding out a weekend of chaos, a couple hundred people took to the streets in Richmond Sunday night, protesting white supremacy and fascism. Police closed down portions of Broad Street as they marched to a monument of Robert E. Lee. A local journalist covering the march was attacked, and one protester was arrested. Mallory Noe-Payne reports.

UPDATE August 15, 9:13 am: The organizer of the planned September rally tells local media he has decided to withdraw his permit request.
