Emergency declared head of Charlottesville anniversary

Emergency declared head of Charlottesville anniversary

"Nobody wants to have to live in a situation like that, but given everything that went on past year, given that there was an attempt that's kind of fizzled but there was an attempt to kind of bring it back to Charlottesville as they said, I think it's necessary, honestly", Rodi said.

In Charlottesville, there will be a commemorative gathering and memorial for Heather Heyer, the woman killed when James Alex Fields Jr drove a auto into the gathering of counterprotesters past year.

Trump drew condemnation in the days that followed when he appeared to equivocate the actions of white supremacists and those that opposed them. This also from the president who said that 'Mexicans are bringing crime, they're bringing guns, they're rapists, some I assume are good people.

Reeve said it was reminiscent of scenes in Charlottesville last summer - because, she said, neo-Nazis in attendance "did not look like the people upper-middle-class white people in the East Coast think of when they think of racists or white supremacists".

And in Wisconsin, Paul Nehlen, the leading Republican running to fill the seat in Congress now held by retiring Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, has emerged as a leader of the alt-right movement.

The president is at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf course, and isn't scheduled to return to Washington until Monday.

Late Saturday morning, when many businesses in a popular downtown shopping district were beginning to open, law enforcement officers outnumbered visitors. The city is planning to establish a "defined security area" downtown where weapons will be banned.

"The law allows for first amendment assemblies of any kind", Newsham said.

"Our goal is to prevent that from occurring". Rally participants carried rifles, shields, neo-Nazi paraphernalia, Confederate battle flags and reportedly chanted Nazi slogans. Events over the decades focused on civil rights, LGBT rights, abortion, ending the Vietnam War and other issues have drawn crowds well into the hundreds of thousands.

Mayor Muriel Bowser said she signed an order raising the city's emergency level to allow for additional resources for safety, traffic management and public works.

This year, Charlottesville Virginia is preparing for the worst, hoping for the best. That's what happened previous year at the original "Unite the Right" rally and at a July 2017 Ku Klux Klan gathering in Charlottesville, where Klansmen were outnumbered 20-to-1.

NBC 12 reports that Jason Kessler, the organizer of the 2017 "Unite the Right" rally, had a permit approved for a rally this Sunday in Lafayette Park in Washington, D.C., just a few blocks north of the White House.

Unlike a year ago, they are banned from holding a march or carrying open-flame torches, as they did in Virginia to protest against the removal of Confederate monuments.

A collective of counter-protest groups will stage a rally earlier in the day before congregating at the park and have vowed to drown out the white nationalists' message. National guard troops will aid the police in securing the city against possible protests.

Right-wing rally organizer, Patriot Prayer founder and Republican Senate candidate Joey Gibson (bottom R) speaks during a campaign rally for Gibson in Portland, Oregon, August 4, 2018.
