Fistfights on the road to a white nationalist speech

Fistfights on the road to a white nationalist speech

Dozens of police vehicles lined the street near the venue, and protesters at one point lied down on the street to block an armored vehicle moving down the road. The second defendant was charged with two counts of resisting and obstructing police.

Demonstrators clash with police before the start of a speech by white nationalist Richard Spencer, who popularized the term "alt-right", at Michigan State University on March 5, 2018 in East Lansing, Michigan. The two sides screamed obscenities at each other. (MSU is now on spring break.) A reporter inside the speech reported seeing less than 50 people in attendance.

Detroit's WDIV reporter Monday that 24-year-old Jonathon Kolanowski was arrested Sunday night in Pittsfield Township, south of Ann Arbor, after a fight broke out between supporters and counter-protesters the day before Spencer's speech at MSU.

"What happened outside was really worrisome and heinous", Spencer said.

Hundreds of protestors had gathered on a road leading into the campus when they were met by several dozens supporters of Spencer.

Police swarmed and pulled out several people. She says she wants people to recognize how serious the issue of white supremacy is today.

Crude export disruptions from key terminal after Libyan oil field production halt
So far in February 2018, USA crude oil production has topped 10 million bpd in each of the three previous weeks, EIA data shows. Brent crude rose 20 cents to $67.51 per barrel and US West Texas Intermediate futures had climbed 41 cents as of 11:35 a.m.

Media representatives for the university could not immediately be reached for comment. "We chased them away". Spencer's group then sued MSU in federal court. He says people came from all over the community and Midwest.

A space inside the pavilion is being rented by Spencer's group, which describes itself on its website as a "central and indispensable component of the global Alt-Right".

According to MSU Police Capt. Doug Monette, a melee outside MSU's Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education led to some of the estimated 500 protesters assembling there being taken into custody and some could face misdemeanor or felony charges.

Monette said his number one concern was maintaining safety on campus.

The organization calls Spencer "a suit-and-tie version of the white supremacists of old, a kind of professional racist in khakis", and one of America's most successful white nationalist leaders.

Some may find the language in this Facebook Live video disturbing.
