EN MASSE Demonstrators rally near the White House on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville ‘Unite the Right’ rally yesterday in Washington

A protester confronts riot gear-clad police on the campus of the University of Virginia during a rally to mark the anniversary of last year's Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., Saturday, Aug. 11, 2018. Heyer was among the hundreds of counter protestors who marched in opposition to the white nationalists. Concrete barriers and metal fences had been erected, and police searched bags at two checkpoints.

Several white supremacists are expected to speak at the second annual Unite the Right rally, including David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

Sunday's rallies come at a time when the wounds from last year's clash in Charlottesville remain raw, particularly in regards to the death of counterprotester Heather Heyer, who was killed when a suspected neo-Nazi sympathizer drove a vehicle into a crowd. At one point, she asked the crowd to raise their fists in solidarity, and she laid flowers at a makeshift memorial. "That's not right", Bro said.

After last year's deadly Unite the Right rally, in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a Whitman's Sampler of neo-Nazis, white supremacists, paramilitary, and the alt-right got together to spew hate, the white nationalists are doing it all over again this weekend.

When Bro arrived, she entered through a crowd of Virginia State Police officers, rather than of the.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said Thursday she signed an order to escalate emergency operations in preparation of the rally that is scheduled to take place Sunday at Lafayette Square, a park across the street from the White House.

The far-right rallygoers marched in the middle of the street, surrounded by a phalanx of police, while counter-protesters heckled them from the sidewalks on either side.

After being confronted with white supremisists, Mark Martin finds himself in the exact spot where he saw the unthinkable unfold a year ago, using the time to help move society forward.

A counterprotest organizer, speaking from the stage, said: "We will be here until these fascist forces are gone, however long that takes".

"I'm not a white supremacist, I'm not even a white nationalist", Kessler told NPR.

Trump drew strong criticism in the days after the Charlottesville rally previous year for equating white supremacists with counter-protesters and saying "both sides" were to blame. Some marchers linked arms as they walked.

"It's nice that they're here to protect us", said Lara Mitchell, 66, a sales associate at a shop that sells artwork, jewelry, and other items.

A review by a former USA attorney found a lack of coordination between state and city police and an operational plan that elevated officer safety over public safety. You're talking about world-class university, but who is in that university?

"A year ago, white supremacists and neo-Nazis from all over the country gathered in Charlottesville to spew hateful rhetoric and bigotry".

Black Lives Matter militants say last year's incident was not an isolated one. A local woman, Heather Heyer, was killed when an OH man, James Fields, drove his vehicle into a crowd of counterprotesters.

In an interview that contained multiple racist claims, Jason Kessler, the event's organizer, told NPR that his top goal is to make sure the event is peaceful, and characterized it as defending the First Amendment.

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

"Nasr said the event, "#ResisDance", is was organized by a collective of queer and trans organizers under Shut it Down D.C., which is coalition of different organizations and local groups based in the DC metropolitan area.
