There were cheers, chants and honks as hundreds gathered outside the Republican Party Headquarters in Minneapolis Monday evening.
The crowd gathered to protest violence in Virginia and as a show of solidarity with other anti-racism protestors across the nation. The group then marched to City Hall.
"This country is in civil unrest right now," said Braylen Davis, who was part of the crowd. "It's unbelievable ... It feels like the 1960s, or like we are in the Civil War right now."
Others said they were unmoved by President Donald Trump's latest comments denouncing racism.

"I'm frightened, and I think it's a really sad state we are in," said Kathy Wallenta, who held a sign along Franklin Avenue. "But this gathering is hopeful."
