‘If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.’

Those are the poignant words taken from the Facebook page of the woman who died when a car ploughed into a crowd opposing a far-right rally.

Heather Heyer has been identified as the 32-year-old woman killed by the grey sports car that also injured 19 other people in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The alleged driver of the car, James Fields, 20, from Ohio, was caught by police a few streets away and charged with second-degree murder.

An online fundraiser has now raised more than £28,000 ($36,200) to help Heather’s family for ‘anything that they may need’.

Felicia Correa started the GoFundMe campaign and shared her friend’s final Facebook post.

Next to Heather’s quote, Felicia wrote: ‘This was something that I pulled from my girls page.

‘The only fatality in today’s mess was my friend. We were kids who played together in Enderly Acres in Greene County.

‘Just saw her not too long ago. Someone who had not a bit of racial hate in her body. RIP Heather.’

In just eight hours the fundraiser has been supported by more than 1,720 people.

Violence erupted in downtown Charlottesville when several hundred protesters took a stand against what is believed to be the largest white supremacist rally for a decade.

Disturbing video footage shows a Dodge Challenger, which is registered to Fields, accelerate into a crowd of protesters who are hurled into the air before the car reverses at speed.

This bloody carnage came after hours of tense stand-offs between the anti-facist protesters and far-right nationalists staging a ‘Unite the Right’ march.

They were marching against plans to remove a statue of Robert E Lee in in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Confederate general led pro-slavery forces during the American civil war.

Charlottesville Police Department say an additional 15 people were wounded in other violence related to the march.

The governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, said his only message for the white supremacists and neo-Nazis that brought chaos to Charlottesville is to ‘go home’.

He added: ‘You are not wanted in this great commonwealth. Shame on you. You pretend that you are patriots, but you are anything but patriots.’
