Photos of clashes at white supremacist Richard Spencer’s MSU speech


Two days of tension surrounding white supremacist Richard Spencer’s visit to Michigan erupted in violence Monday outside of his planned speech at Michigan State University, where throngs of anti-fascist protesters stood ready to block Spencer’s supporters from attending the event.

Punching and shoving broke out when a tight line of members of a neo-Nazi group were forced to bypass the crowd of several hundred protesters as they marched toward the agricultural pavilion where Spencer was to take the floor. Find our story here.
