Don Gathers, the social justice activist who was spotted hitting a man with a stick in the early moments of violence at Charlottesville’s Unite the Right rally in 2017, will not seek a City Council seat in the Virginia city at this time.
Gathers was slated to kick things off with a launch party, but backed out — citing health reasons.
Activist Don Gathers, identified as the stick-wielding Black Lives Matter supporter who struck at least one person in the crowd as violence was developing at the 2017 Unite the Right rally, is now running for Charlottesville City Council.
Gathers is running in the June 11 Democratic primary alongside another activist named Michael Payne, and their campaign slogan is “Community Driven, Community Focused.” Gathers is making his public announcement Tuesday.
Gathers is a well-known agitator seen here leading activists with his stick.
Gathers has been identified as the man who swings his stick repeatedly, samurai-style, at the 1:30 Minute Mark of this video from the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.

Rand Paul Recovers from Coronavirus, Begins Volunteering at Hospital
Paul tested negative for the disease.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul announced that he had tested negative for coronavirus after catching the viral disease earlier this month, signaling that the libertarian conservative senator has recovered from the disease.
Paul, an ophthalmologist, has begun offering his services as a volunteer physician at a Kentucky hospital in order to alleviate the pressures inflicted by the coronavirus in his state.
I appreciate all the best wishes I have received. I have been retested and I am negative. I have started volunteering at a local hospital to assist those in my community who are in need of medical help, including Coronavirus patients. Together we will overcome this! pic.twitter.com/9SeypT7rL6

Paul had entered quarantine on March 22nd after testing positive for the coronavirus. He’s the only Senator to test positive for the disease, although Mitt Romney and Mike Lee entered self-quarantine after coming into contact with individuals confirmed to have the disease.
President Donald Trump had sent Paul his well wishes after learning of the coronavirus diagnosis.
Thank you Mr. President! https://t.co/GIsaQTbgQU

Paul had become the target of criticism from at least one liberal Senator for his quarantine procedures. Kyrsten Sinema had attacked Paul for utilizing the Senate gym and pool while waiting for the results of his coronavirus tests, although Paul maintains that he had taken the test as a purely cautionary measure without knowingly coming into contact with anyone who had the disease.
Kentucky has incurred roughly 1,200 diagnosed coronavirus cases as of Tuesday, with more than 60 people dying of the disease in the state.
