New York protester holds sign quoting Charlottesville victim's last public Facebook post

A Brooklyn protester was photographed Monday night holding a sign quoting the last public Facebook post written by Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer, which reads, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.” Heyer was part of a counter-protest at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday.

Heyer, a 32-year-old paralegal, died after white supremacist James Alex Fields drove his car into a a crowd of counter-protesters in Charlottesville. Heyer’s boss Alfred Wilson said she was “passionate” about social justice causes, and that she was disturbed by the 2016 election.

According to Reuters, Wilson said Heyer would sometimes “sit in the office and cry” about what’s happening in the US.
