President Trump addressed concerns this morning tweeting that last year's event resulted in "senseless death and division" and condemning all forms of "racism and acts of violence".

Trump's tweet Saturday, his first public mention of the anniversary, did not label the event as a white supremacist rally or specify that it was a white rallygoer who rammed his auto into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one. "Unless there is something they're not telling us and have some intelligence that the white nationalists will still march in force, it seems like who they're gearing up to monitor and observe and contain and discipline are those of us who want to resist fascism and racism".

"These are intentional acts, even though people may not see the rhyme or reason to it", Malone said.

The National Park Service approved an application for what was described as a "white civil rights" rally on August 12, at D.C.'s Lafayette Park.

The state of emergency will stay in place in Charlottesville through the weekend so people can go and honor Heyer's life along with the two state troopers who also died previous year.

Two state police personnel - Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates - died in a helicopter crash responding to the scene. An extensive review identified "gaps" in planning and communication among agencies, culminating in this year's plan, Charlottesville Police Chief RaShall Brackney said.

Her father was slammed last year for saying that there was "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" in the wake of the riots, which left 32-year-old Heather Heyer dead.

But some protesters rallied in a different place than planned. Police said they would have a heavy presence in and around Metro stations at Foggy Bottom and Vienna but would not say if they would give Kessler's group special protections on public transit.

"We're bringing people from all over Sandtown, and all over Baltimore City, to go to the Unite the Right Rally", said Reverend Rodney Hudson of Ames Memorial United Methodist Church.

An independent investigation of last year's rally violence found the chaos stemmed from a passive response by law enforcement and poor preparation and coordination between state and city police.

On Saturday, Trump condemned "all types of racism" in a Twitter post marking the anniversary.

Carlson's group locked arms and chanted slogans of their own, including "Black Lives Matter!" and "No Nazis, No KKK, No Fascist USA!".

District law states you can't deny service to anyone based on political affiliation, but when it comes to behavior that threatens a protected class, D.C. law does allow businesses to deny services. "They are afraid of us because we are demanding change from the university", Carlson said. This year they come w/ badge" and chanted "Why are you in riot gear?

"We all have a responsibility to stand up to hate", Bro said this week.

"The group is by and large a lot younger than me and very diverse in many ways, not just demographics but also political orientations and approach to protest", Lance said.
