  • State Of Emergency Declared In Charlottesville For 'Unite the Right' Anniversary

The groups violently clashed with counterprotesters and Antifa demonstrators, which led to the death of one counterprotester and the injury of several others, when a vehicle driven by James Alex Fields struck and killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

The declaration will be in place Friday through Sunday for events in and around Charlottesville and Washington, D.C. Northam's statement said the action will give state agencies the necessary tools to "perform actions outside the scope of normal operations".

Heyer's mother, Susan Bro, who's spent much of the past year working with Wilson on a foundation named for her daughter, said she plans to place flowers Sunday at the site of the attack that claimed Heyer's life.

"One of my hugest gripes with a year ago with the people of this town was that people, mostly white folks, kept saying, 'This isn't Charlottesville,"' said Brenda Brown-Grooms, a local pastor and activist.

Counter-protesters turned out to demonstrate against the rally.

The "Unite the Right" rally resulted in violent clashes between people from the left and right of the political equation, which led to one of Trump's more heavily-criticised reactions when he failed to identify and directly censure the alt-right movement. The city is planning to establish a "defined security area" downtown where weapons will be banned.

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. 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.

A march is to begin at 5 p.m. ET Sunday from Washington's Foggy Bottom subway station to Lafayette Square park, according to the "Unite the Right 2" website.

"The goal of all of law enforcement on that particular day is to make sure no one gets hurt, and nothing gets broken", said D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham.

Referring to Russian Federation, the congressman said, "They use events like this divisive racial fight. and this is the sort of thing they do".
