I’m used to seeing the protestors on the corner of Main and Ridge St. Thursday nights, but this time the crowd streched from the corner all the way down to the intersection with Preston. Did anyone else from here go to it? Charlottesville police estimate ~500 people, but I’d say it was more than that. The Daily Progress has the story.
