FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Hundreds of people gathered in Fargo on Sunday to counter-protest a ‘White Lives Matter’ event that was reportedly planned at the city hall, but never materialized.
A Black Lives Matter protest marched from Fargo's Island Park to the city hall, KFGO-AM reported. There had been reports on Friday that a ‘White Lives Matter’ protest was planned there, but there no protesters affiliated with that event showed up. ‘White Lives Matter’ has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights group, as racist and part of a white supremacist movement.
Fargo police patrolled the area during the march, and there were no arrests.
