“Suddenly, a fight breaks out behind me. De’Andre Harris comes running out and is followed by about a dozen white supremacists, who are chasing him with clubs, helmets and shields and every sort of weapon they could find. And they shove him into a parking arm. He falls down. They keep beating him, kicking him, using whatever they can find.”
Palast Investigative Fund photographer Zach D. Roberts  is interviewed by Nermeen Shaikh  for Democracy Now!  about the brutal beating of De’Andre Harris he witnessed and caught on camera in Charlottesville on August 12, 2017.
