Organizers of the white supremacist Unite the Right 2 rally expected hundreds of supporters to attend the event Sunday in Washington, D.C., but just 24 or so showed up, CNN reports.
Jason Kessler, the organizer of the event, said more people would have shown up but many were confused about transportation. There were at least 1,000 counterprotesters, who shouted, "Nazis go home!" and "Shame! Shame! Shame!" The first Unite the Right rally one year ago in Charlottesville, Virginia, was violent and ended in the death of counterprotester Heather Heyer.
During Sunday's rally, participants listened to a few impromptu speakers, and not long after left in several white vans. One white nationalist told CNN there weren't very many supporters at the rally because "people are scared to come out after what happened last year." Catherine Garcia
