Counterprotesters return to UVA campus for rally

It’s bad and you should feel bad’ NPR blasted for interviewing white nationalist Jason Kessler

As many businesses in a popular downtown shopping district began to open Saturday, law enforcement officers outnumbered visitors.

Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, now running for the US Senate from Utah, said in an essay published at the weekend that he disagreed with Trump's declaration that many "good people" had taken part on the white nationalist side of the Charlottesville event.

Fighting broke out between attendees and counterprotesters that day.

Authorities have promised an enormous police presence to keep both sides apart and avoid the street brawls that broke out past year in downtown Charlottesville.

An independent investigation of the rally violence, led by a former federal prosecutor, found the chaos stemmed from a passive response by law enforcement and poor preparation and coordination between state and city police.

Both Market Street Park, where last year's rally was held, and Court Square Park will be completely fenced off, according to city spokesman Brian Wheeler.

Congressman Tom Garrett, R. -Va., on Saturday said Russian Federation is to blame for some of the hate spewed from last year's rally. "It makes me feel deeply disturbed that they will be right outside of the White House, but where they are in physical proximity to our president or to this administration isn't really the biggest issue; It's that they feel emboldened to to convene again".

Bro said people who hear her speak, or who know about what happened to Heyer, contact her and say they've been inspired.

Kyle Rodland, 35, took his young sons to get ice cream downtown late Saturday morning.

Then in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier". And then [after that] it will be hard , especially with the national teams.

Kyle Rodland, who took his young sons to get ice cream downtown, said he felt much safer than a year ago, when he left town with his family and stayed with his parents after seeing people armed with long rifles walking around outside his home.

While the White House will be the backdrop of the rallies, President Donald Trump will not be in town.

As dusk fell on the anniversary of the torch-lit march across the University of Virginia campus, a mass of anti-racist marchers reclaimed the streets of the city.

Ryan recalled how a group of students and community members faced off against the white supremacist marchers near a statue of Thomas Jefferson on campus, calling it a "remarkable moment of courage and bravery".

In Charlottesville, at least one rally is being organized on the University of Virginia campus by a group of student activists, UVA Students United.

Charlottesville is bracing for what may come this weekend on the first anniversary of the deadly rally. A man who espoused neo-Nazi views drove his vehicle into the counterdemonstrators, killing a 32-year-old woman, Heather Heyer. A state police helicopter later crashed, killing two troopers.

A student rally has been planned this weekend in Charlottesville to reclaim the campus square where the white supremacists marched a year ago wielding tiki torches. Gov. Northam declared a state of emergency in advance, allowing Charlottesville to have a heavy police presence.

Sgt. James Dingeldein of the Park Police said his agency, the Washington police and the Park Service had met with Kessler and leaders of counterprotest groups to explain to them what is permissible on the grounds of the park.
