On Saturday, supporters of the Ku Klux Klan gathered in Dayton, Ohio for a rally.
As with many other far-right and white supremacist events, the rally was accompanied by an intense police presence — and angry protests and demonstrations against the display of hate in their city.
Here are some of the best counter-demonstration signs and other forms of protest used by Dayton residents to fight back against the KKK:
