Anti-racism activists began the march on Monday from Charlottesville to Washington to protest against a far-right rally in the Virginia city and what they called President Donald Trump's reluctance to condemn its white nationalist organizers.

Participants of the march begin the 10-day trek. The "March to Confront White Supremacy" is the latest demonstration following the Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville, when one woman was killed after a man drove a car into a crowd of anti-racism counterprotesters. Trump received fierce criticism from across the political spectrum after he first blamed "many sides" for the violence. Under pressure, he later condemned neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan by name, but that did little to appease his opponents.
