Extra CHP and Sacramento police officers were called in to separate the two groups, and at least one arrest was made. 

A group of self-proclaimed white supremacists organized a nationwide protest Monday for part of an effort they call the “South Africa Project.” According to the project’s website, they want to stop the alleged “genocide of whites” in South Africa.

A group of Occupy protesters then started a counter-demonstration, according to Fox 40.
