On Oct. 19, white supremacist and president of the National Policy Institute Richard Spencer spoke at an auditorium at the University of Florida. The last time he spoke on a college campus was on Aug. 11 in Charlottesville, Va., where he also led ta torch walk that triggered violent protests and left one woman dead.

Fearing a similar outcome, Florida was ready for what was to come. Gov. Rick Scott allowed the Alachua County to declare a state of emergency in order to allow greater coordination among law enforcement agencies throughout the state, and the University of Florida announced they spent over $500,000 on security for the event.

Richard Spencer’s speech at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts auditorium drew a large crowd of protestors who marched, held signs, and chanted as police officers, SWAT team members, and Florida Highway Patrol watched from the streets and roof tops. Those who supported Spencer’s cause were also in attendance. The protest was a mostly peaceful one as the protestors hung around outside of the auditorium.
