Peaceful protestors in Charlottesville, Virginia are holding a candlelight vigil for Heather Heyer, the 32-year old who was killed when a self-avowed Nazi sympathizer rammed his car into a crowd of people Saturday.


The demonstration is in stark contrast to the violent rally that took place last weekend, when white supremacists descended on Charlottesville to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate leader Robert E. Lee.
