| terəˌrizəm | noun
The unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
On August 12th 2017, James Alex Fields committed an act of violent terrorism in Charlottesville, VA. He murdered Heather Heyer and injured 19 others: innocent protestors standing up to white supremacists.
Fields acted in the false belief that hate could defeat hope—that white supremacy could prosper on American soil.
We demand that the FBI and the Department of Justice charge the attacker, and his accomplices, under the full force of federal hate crime and domestic terror powers granted under the Patriot Act.
