Nearly a dozen protesters who described themselves as white nationalists interrupted a talk at a Washington, D.C. bookstore Saturday afternoon and chanted "This land is our land."

According to The Washington Post, about 10 white men walked into Politics and Prose during a talk by author and psychiatrist Jonathan Metzl, who wrote "Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America's Heartland."

After Metzl started talking about his book, the group walked in front of him and one of the men said through a megaphone, "You would have the white working class trade their homeland for handouts."

He added, "But we, as nationalists and identitarians, can offer the workers of this country a homeland, their birthright, in addition to health care, good jobs, and so forth."

They chanted "This land is our land" as they left the store.

Store co-owner Bradley Graham told the Post there were no injuries and the store suffered no damage during the brief incident.

Also on Saturday, police say a 19-year-old white man entered a California synagogue and opened fire, killing one person and wounding three others.
