Hundreds take to Charlottesville streets a year after far-right rally

Hundreds take to Charlottesville streets a year after far-right rally

"I think there is blame on both sides", Trump said during a press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower in NY.

More than 1,500 counter-protesters plan to gather at various downtown locations, including in the same park.

Opponents are mobilizing in Washington, D.C.to confront hundreds of white supremacists after an organizer of last year's Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was granted permission to stage another demonstration outside the White House on the one-year anniversary Sunday. "It's so fraught with what's happened that I feel I need to be away this weekend", McKeithen says.

"They marched chanting the slogans "Jews will not replace us" and 'blood and soil, ' a classic Nazi chant", Lance said of the Virginia rally.

The city tweeted just before 2:30 p.m. that two arrests had been made so far Saturday.

All of this ahead of larger rallies planned in Washington, D.C. on Sunday. Miska is known for trying previous year to remove the shroud covering the Robert E. Lee statue at the epicenter of the original rally.

Kessler had applied for a permit to hold his anniversary rally in Charlottesville, and had sued the city when they denied him the permit, but he dropped his battle with the city in late July.

Several dozen demonstrators from the so-called "antifa", or anti-fascist, movement marched to the spot where Heather Heyer was killed previous year when a man linked to white supremacist groups rammed his vehicle into counter-protestors. The conflict culminated in the death of Heather Heyer, 32, when James Alex Fields Jr., whose social media accounts included posts espousing white supremacy, purposely drove his auto into a crowd of counterprotesters.

But others said Saturday they were comforted by the security measures.

On the day's itinerary were several remembrance events, including a "morning of reflection and renewal", a poetry session, and an appearance by University of Virginia President James Ryan, who was on deck to speak.

A group of anti-fascist protesters, sometimes known as "Antifa", marched in the afternoon, carrying signs with messages like "Good Night White Pride".

Two state police personnel - Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates - died in a helicopter crash responding to the scene.

Clara Carlson was one of those counterprotesters. I hope that as we remember the lives lost a year ago, we also renew our commitment to equity and diversity.

An independent investigation of the rally violence, led by a former federal prosecutor, found the chaos stemmed from a passive response by law enforcement and poor preparation and coordination between state and city police. "This year, I'm afraid of the police", Woolfork said.

"People are welcome into the community, people are invited into the community", she said. The "white civil rights" anniversary rally organized by Kessler, a Charlottesville resident, is expected to attract no more than 100 to 400 people, according to the official permit for the event.

The states of emergency will allow state and city agencies to get additional resources, Gov. Ralph Northam said in a statement.
