State Of Emergency Declared In Charlottesville For 'Unite the Right' Anniversary

State Of Emergency Declared In Charlottesville For 'Unite the Right' Anniversary

After Charlottesville denied him a permit this year, event organizer Jason Kessler turned his attention to Washington, D.C. with a rally scheduled to be held at Lafayette Park near the White House on Sunday. He also plans to refuse service to any person harassing employees or wearing white nationalist or Nazi symbols or attire.

Last year's Unite the Right rally ended with violent clashes between marchers and counter-protesters.

Both Charlottesville, Va., and D.C. are bracing for potential violence in the vein of last August's "Unite the Right" rally, at which one person was killed and 19 were injured after a white nationalist plowed his vehicle into counterprotesters assembled after their Charlottesville rally.

Charlottesville's interim City Manager Mike Murphy said many lessons were learned from last year's tragic events.

Authorities are planning a massive law enforcement presence in Washington, D.C., and Charlottesville, Va., this weekend ahead of expected protests.

That quaint Virginia college town, still wrestling with slavery's legacy, was the scene of protests, violent clashes and the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, who was struck down by a speeding auto that plowed into a group of counterprotesters. With regard to the security area in downtown Charlottesville, law enforcement personnel will man two entry points for pedestrians seeking to exit the security area.

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

Michael Shallal, a member of the D.C. chapter of the International Socialists Organization, one of the organizing groups of the Freedom Plaza rally, said that participants from the Washington region and up and down the East Coast will take part in Sunday's event. "We hope the anniversary of those events passes peacefully", said Northam.

Chief Newsham said the main goal is to make sure property does not get damaged and people do not get hurt. Numerous planned community events will promote peaceful messages, including a gathering in honor of counterprotester Heather Heyer, who was run over by a suspected neo-Nazi sympathizer.

"We are closely monitoring the intelligence that is available to us about who is coming and who is going elsewhere", Brackney said Wednesday. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence.

On Tuesday, Gates did connect one part of the bank fraud charges against Manafort to his role in the Trump campaign. "I am here. He told jurors how he disguised millions of dollars in foreign income as loans in order to lower Manafort's tax bill.

Murphy also made a decision to close the City Market Aug. 11 due to public safety concerns in the downtown area.

Kessler has been promoting this year's event on various social media platforms and blames the city of Charlottesville for violence during last year's rally, when armed neo-Nazis descended on the normally tranquil southern town.

Initial plans were for Kessler's group to assemble at the Vienna Metro station in northern Virginia and take Metro to Foggy Bottom, then march to McPherson Square.

Rally organizers cautioned attendees not to react with anger against any counter protesters. "This year, I'm afraid of the police", Woolfork said.

"We have seen in the past where these two groups have been in the same area at the same time, it leads to violent confrontations", Newsham said at a press briefing Thursday.
