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. It occurred in 2017, from August 11 to 12, and was prompted by the city's plans to eradicate a Confederate statue from a local park.

Last year, a rally was organised by white supremacist network Unite the Right in response to growing frustration over the planned removal of statues honouring Confederate generals in Charlottesville.

As well, National Guard vehicles stormed through the streets of the college town after a Dodge Challenger was rammed through a crowd of activists in the streets driven by self-proclaimed white supremacist James Alex Fields Jr. of OH, who is now facing murder charges in Heyer's death.

Rally supporters and counter-protesters screamed, shouted, chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles, and unleashed chemical sprays on each other that weekend in Charlottesville.

The 20-year-old who drove the vehicle into the crowd was charged with second-degree murder.

A group of white nationalists holding lit tiki torches marched through the campus of the University of Virginia, some chanting the Nazi-associated phrase "blood and soil".

The ugly scenes highlighted the growing boldness of America's extreme right.

In a dramatic change of tone from the previous year, when he said there was "blame on both sides" for the violence, President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he condemns "all types of racism and acts of violence". His application for a permit in D.C. was approved for a march from Foggy Bottom Metro station to a demonstration at Lafayette Park outside the White House.

Grace Aheron, an organizer for Showing Up for Racial Justice, said a "militarized police presence" doesn't make the city safer. We must come together as a nation, ' Trump tweeted on Saturday morning.

Guns are banned at this year's rally, even for people that have a legal permit.

Last year's rally did not come with conversations and many peaceful demonstrations, however. Safety and security are always a top concern as restaurants are public spaces.
