San Diego protesters met in Balboa Park for what they described as a "rally against hate" on Sunday.
The rally was a counterprotest to the “Patriot Prayer” and “March Against Marxism” that took place in San Francisco and Berkeley, as well as to show solidarity with allies against racism in Charlottesville, according to a statement from the organizers of a Facebook group called San Diego Protest.
"Every time there's 100 white supremacists that want to gather in public or 10 that even dare do that, 10,000 are going to show up across the country in opposition to that. We're not going to let this stuff go on in the open," one of the protesters told NBC 7.
The event was scheduled for 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in front of the Museum of Man in Balboa Park.
Protesters marched 1.5 miles from the Museum of Man to Horton Plaza in downtown San Diego.
