  • Charlottesville survivor speaks about recovery experience being hit by car during protest

Washington was bracing for a white nationalist rally on Sunday organized to coincide with the anniversary of last year's racially charged violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

On Saturday, anti-fascist marchers in Charlottesville held peaceful demonstrations against white supremacy as many people laid flowers on a makeshift memorial to Heather Heyer, who was killed in last year's violence while protesting the extreme right.

"Some of our members are concerned about safety for their staff and guests and came to us with questions as we are a resource for the restaurant community".

On Saturday, Trump condemned "all types of racism" in a Twitter post marking the anniversary.

President Trump urges peace for all Americans one year after the deadly incidents in Charlottesville.

Activists in Charlottesville plan a rally against hate on Saturday, and numerous same alt-right groups that appeared in last year's "Unite the Right" rally are planning a sequel in Washington, D.C., on Sunday. "This progress that they are so afraid of - the rise of black leaders and Black Lives Matter getting bigger and people feeling safe to speak their mind - that is still happening".

They declined, though, to detail specific security threats or whether known white supremacists and nationalists, such as rally organizer Jason Kessler, would be in the area.

Charlottesville officials said that as of 4:30 p.m. on Saturday three men were arrested "inside and in proximity to the security area in downtown Charlottesville". States of emergency were declared Wednesday for the Commonwealth of Virginia and Charlottesville. The following day, a much larger gathering of white nationalists near a downtown park erupted into violence.

Only took him a year.

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.

"These are intentional acts, even though people may not see the rhyme or reason to it", Malone said.

Authorities eventually forced the crowd to disperse, but a vehicle later barreled into a crowd of peaceful counter-protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

Congressman Tom Garrett, R. -Va., on Saturday said Russian Federation is to blame for some of the hate spewed from last year's rally.

One year ago, white supremacists led a surprise torch march at UVA. Two state troopers also died that day in a helicopter crash near Charlottesville.

Cummings told Karl on Sunday, "It's one thing to say things".

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

Trump added he has "fought" to improve the lives of minorities and vowed "I will never stop fighting for ALL Americans!" On Saturday night, she was angry at the police response to the student rally.
