"Our goal is to prevent that from happening".

"The statue itself is symbolic of a lot of larger issues", Kessler said past year.

"I take issue with the fact that many in the national media spent more time criticizing the president's words than they did criticizing those that perpetuated the violence to begin with", Pence added.

"They want to be open in solidarity with the community", Fenton said.

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

"We remember seeing burning tiki torches, we remember Heather Heyer - it didn't make sense a year ago, and it doesn't make sense now", stated Mayor Bowser. "While we are opposed adamantly to what we are going to hear, we know what our responsibility is - to protect First Amendment events, to protect Washingtonians and to protect our city". Police chief Alfred Thomas resigned after an independent report skewered the police's preparation, saying that they were ill-prepared, not properly trained and lacked an appropriate plan to handle the rally. "The law does not allow for injuries to persons or destruction of property".

US President Donald Trump has moved to condemn "all types of racism and acts of violence" one year on from the alt-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia that left one woman dead.

Authorities came under harsh criticism for underestimating the potential for unrest at last year's rally. The rally organized by neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups on August 12, 2017, occurred over the proposed removal of the statue of Robert E. Lee from a downtown park, which quickly deteriorated into clashes between members of Confederate-sympathizing groups and Antifa, including other counter-protesters. They will start at Freedom Plaza, but also plan on marching to Lafayette Park. The rally violence proved a costly debacle for leading figures such as white nationalist Richard Spencer and others who are fighting lawsuits. Kessler backed off plans for another rally this summer and turned his focus to an event in Washington, D.C.

Volvió a aumentar la nafta en toda la provincia
Desde ayer, en nuestra ciudad, la nafta Súper cuesta $ 33,87, la Infinia $ 40,06, el diésel $29,35 e Infinia diesel $ 34,65. Aplicó una suba promedio del 2% en las provincias de Córdoba, Salta , Neuquén y Santa Fe.

It is crucial, Shallal said, that counterprotesters far outnumber Kessler "to show that these ideas are not acceptable".

Secret service officials will join officers from Washington DC's police force and the National Park Service to ensure there is no repeat of the violent clashes this time past year. The website for Unite the Right urges marchers to meet at a Virginia Metro station and ride public transportation into the city.

What are police doing about security?

"It's kind of overwhelming and intimidating, definitely", Inlow said. A group of white nationalists had also descended onto Charlottesville for the rally.

"In general, regardless of event, drivers are advised to follow all local laws but have the right to refuse service to riders who are disrespectful or who make them feel unsafe", Uber said in a statement.

Multiple events are planned in the Charlottesville area from Friday through Sunday to mark the anniversary of the rally, Northam's office said.

Counterprotesters are expected to include members of antifa, an anti-fascist group, some of whose members rampaged through parts of the District on Inauguration Day employing "black bloc" tactics of breaking windows and setting fires. He also did not mention a white nationalist demonstration planned for Sunday in the capital.
