Charlottesville on High Alert on Anniversary of White Nationalist Rally

GW to close some buildings for 'Unite the Right' rally

Numerous most prominent white supremacist leaders from last year's rally have suffered setbacks in the past year, a result of forceful counter-protests, a series of lawsuits filed against different white supremacist leaders, movement feuds and infighting, and, in one case, prosecution for domestic violence.

A year ago the objective of the rally on August 12, 2017 was to protest city plans to remove a statue of General Robert E. Lee who led the Confederate army during the Civil War.

Starting Friday at 6 p.m., a secure perimeter will be established in downtown Charlottesville where the gathering is expected to take place.

The rally trailed two other notable protests that took place in Charlottesville last summer.

On the eve of last year's rally, torch-toting white supremacists marched through the University of Virginia's campus, shouting racist and anti-Semitic slogans.

Attendees: According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the rally's confirmed speakers include neo-Nazi Patrick Little, former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, South African survivalist Simon Roche, a guy from Patriot Prayer, the editor of the Revolutionary Conservative, Kessler's reported attorney Corey Mahler, and "pro-white" town manager Tom Kawczynski.

During the Unite the Right rally on August 12, 2017, rally participants included neo-Nazi and alt-right members.

The group's website is advising participants to bring items like guns, pepper spray, shields, non-US or Confederate flags or knives to the rally.

The company is citing its community values as grounds to cut ties with participants of the rallies, which stemmed from a protest previous year to protect Confederate statues - which included neo-Nazi groups - but exploded in violence.

The morning of August 12, 2017, Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency due to the rally's violence.

She added her condolences to the family of Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman who was killed last year after a neo-Nazi driver ploughed his vehicle into a group of anti-racist protesters.

Fields was indicted for the death of Heyer and charged with 30 hate crimes. The troopers, Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates, were lending air support in response to the violence in Charlottesville.

A white supremacist rally is set for Sunday in Washington, D.C., but it is not clear if the National Socialist Movement will be participating. Newsham said Washington law allows police to ban guns from certain areas when they deem it necessary.

Black Lives Matter also have a permit for counter-protests.

Unlike in Charlottesville, where police allowed the opposing factions to clash in what turned into a bloody melee, Washington, D.C., Police Chief Peter Newsham said Thursday that the goal "will be to keep the two groups separate".

"We draw a line at giving special accommodations to hate groups and hate speech", Local 689 President Jackie Jeter said in a statement.

A city spokesperson told the TV station there will be 1,000 law enforcement officers working in the Charlottesville area this weekend.
