On August 12th, 2017 there was a "Unite the Right" march of white nationalist and other right-wing groups (KKK, Neo-nazis, and white supremacists) that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.
These individuals were protesting against the removal of local confederate monuments, primarily the Robert E. Lee Statue in Emancipation Park.
Dre arrived at Emancipation Park around 11 AM as a counter-protester to voice he’s opinion on racial tensions and to literally stand up for what he believe in. He was only there for a few minutes before he was hit with water bottles, maced with pepper spray.
He was brutally attacked by white supremacists in the parking garage right beside the Charlottesville Police Station and beat with metal poles, knocked unconscious repeatedly.
Every time he went to stand up was knocked back down. VIDEO
He was taken to the ER at Martha Jefferson Hospital, diagnsoed with a concussion, an ulnar fracture, and receive eight staples in he’s head. Also had a laceration across the right eyebrow, abrasions on knees & elbows, and a chipped tooth.
The funds will be used to pay for my medical bills.
We need as much help as we can possibly get right now.Prayers are appreciated and again, ANYTHING helps. The money will be for Andres medical bills as well as other expenses after his release.
Thank you all in advance. We appreciate the support from friends and everyone.
People are carrying real hate in their hearts for the Black Community and I refuse to just let it happen.
God Bless & thank you all again!
