He continued: "What about the "alt-left" that came charging at, as you say, the 'alt-right, ' do they have any semblance of guilt?", he said. More than 200 marched to another part of campus, where many shouted at a line of officers.

"Cops and Klan go hand in hand", Kibiriti Majuto, a coordinator for the University of Virginia's UVA Students United, told the AP. "How does that create a sense of community?" "We love everyone. And, we're going to silence their negativity by showing love". He said then that there were "very fine people, on both sides", and later, "blame on both sides". The rest of the evening remained quiet.

Concrete barriers and metal fences were put up and police were searching bags at checkpoints.

"It means that I'm making available every resource.to ensure that we have safe events", she said at a news conference that was held at a Washington synagogue. A year ago was a whole different story.

Any response from Trump to this year's demonstrations could have consequences as Democrats look to harness outrage for electoral gains.

August 12 marks the day when members of the alt-right and white supremacist groups protested Charlottesville's decision to remove a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a park. The event descended into violence, with clashes erupting between attendees and counterprotesters.

The mother of Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman who was hit by a vehicle and killed last year, has also spoken publicly leading up to the anniversary.

In addition, two police officers died in a helicopter crash while they were monitoring the protests.

Bro said Heyer, a paralegal for a Charlottesville law firm, helped her understand white privilege, and she has been attempting to explain that to others. The local chapter of Black Lives Matter is also planning a separate march to the site.

One person died and several others were injured on August 12 past year when a vehicle ploughed into counter protesters who had taken to the streets to oppose a Unite the Right rally of white nationalists.

"I remember the police just standing around". "I was grateful that I was able to come out of that alive".

Last year, Trump drew scrutiny for a series of comments he made in the wake of the killing of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, who was protesting the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.

According to The Washington Post and Associated Press reports, the nighttime protesters mobilized against the police presence, which some described as aggressive and which some compared to last year's white supremacists.

"Last year, I was afraid of the Nazis".

Some nearby businesses, such as the Lincoln restaurant, said they will close early on Sunday to avoid any conflict or confrontations.

Organizer: The event was organized by Jason Kessler, who already had last year's rally on his resume.

The "Unite the Right" rally in a Charlottesville park was organized in 2017 by white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups to protest plans to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate States Army during the U.S. Civil War.

Ahead of the anniversary of the deadly rally, Heyer's mother Susan Bro said she is proud of her daughter and the difference her legacy is making.

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.
