Buffalo, NY – A number of representatives from the area’s Labor Movement joined with an array of Government, Clergy and Community Leaders Wednesday (August 16th) to participate in a prayer vigil that was held in response to this past weekend’s hateful violence in Charlottesville, Virginia,

One of those leaders addressing the crowd was Western New York AFL-CIO Area Labor Federation (WNYALF) President Richard Lipsitz (Pictured Above/Photo Courtesy of Buffalo AFL-CIO President John Mudie Via The Social Network Facebook), who said: “The Neo-Fascist demonstrations in support of racism and Anti-Semitism ‘is not a distraction’ from the social program of Donald Trump – ‘It is the program of Donald Trump.’”

The event was described as a call to action for all sectors of the Buffalo Community to uniformly denounce violent racism and bigotry, where all – in one voice – proudly gathered together to tell those who wish to spread hate and violence: “not here, not ever.”

The Buffalo event also recognized and honored the two State Troopers who lost their lives over the weekend, as well as Health Heyer, the Charlottesville Para-Legal who died after being struck by an Ohio man driving a vehicle, who had made the trip to Virginia to participate with the Alt-Right in the hate rally.
