Virginia declares state of emergency ahead of anniversary of violent Charlottesville rally
As the one year anniversary of the deadly white nationalist riots in Charlottesville, Virginia approaches, friends and family of Heather Heyer-the paralegal and progressive activist mowed down by a Nazi who drove his vehicle into a crowd-honored her memory.
"As we face this invasion of vile and perverted ideology infesting our region, we stand united in our conviction that a diverse and inclusive Maryland is a stronger Maryland", he said.
Emails obtained through the Freedom of Information Act between organizers for the white nationalist event and the National Park Service reveal potential speakers at the rally include former grand wizard of the KKK David Duke, who made headlines in 2016 when he signed up to run for the U.S. Senate in Louisiana, and neo-Nazi and Holocaust denier Patrick Little. Last year's rally exposed a racial divide in the city, Debbie says.
Sunday's Unite the Right rally in LaFayette Park near the White House is organized by Jason Kessler, who invited the NSM to the Charlottesville event. Police at last year's event were criticized for being caught off guard by the violence, failing to keep feuding groups apart and not reacting quickly enough as fights broke out.
"This event on Sunday will be that which allows the First Amendment to occur because our beat, our daily responsibilities on the National Mall is our nation's civic stage", said Unite States Park Police Chief Robert MacLean. He also said the event is meant to protest "civil rights abuse in Charlottesville Va". Richard Spencer, a leading white-nationalist leader who helped Kessler organize last year's event, has said he will not participate in Sunday's rally.
Event: The rally will start in Lafayette Park in Washington, D.C., and run from August 11 to 12. But white supremacist groups have staged multiple visits and flash protests around Charlottesville before and after last August's violent rallies, locals are on edge.
In a last week, the City announced that downtown residents who would be displaced by the restrictions could obtain special permits for the Market Street Garage during the anniversary weekend.
Exactly a year since torch-wielding neo-Nazis clashed with counter demonstrators in a deadly protest that highlighted the growing boldness of America's extreme right, white nationalists are set to rally outside the White House on Sunday.
More details about the demonstrations are expected to be released in the coming days. "You also had some very fine people on both sides", he added. We are aware these views can awaken a passion within. University of Virginia students will march on their Charlottesville campus Saturday night, Debbie tellsScott Simon on Weekend Edition Saturday. "They've never come to Washington", the woman told the mayor.
