  • Businesses say they'll refuse service to Unite the Right attendees in DC

"It's not all about Heather.it never was", Bro told the crowd.

The demonstrations also 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. "There is so much healing to do".

'If you rush to heal, if you rush to everybody grab each other and sing kumbaya, we will be back here in a few years, ' she said.

"We don't want to be painted as victims", Carlson said on Saturday, several hours before students and activists gathered for a rally near the statue on the anniversary of the campus confrontation.

Jason Kessler, the primary organizer of last summer's rally, sued the city of Charlottesville after it refused to issue him a permit for another event this weekend.

The "Unite the Right 2" event was set to take place at 5:30 p.m. (10.30 p.m. BST) in Lafayette Square, across the street from the White House.

Manigault Newman, a former contestant on the show, makes the allegation in an upcoming tell-all about her tenure in the Trump White House.

'We have a number of techniques to keep them separate, ' Newsham said.

Hawk Newsome, the president of that Black Lives Matter chapter, told NPR last week that if people are "tired of the racism in America, if they're exhausted of these groups who have killed people for hundreds of years, then they should show up and stand with us in this safe space on Sunday".


On Friday, businesses are handed out pins with a singular message in mind: spread love, and move forward united. They are afraid of us because we are demanding change from the university.

"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.

Earlier in the day in Charlottesville, a crowd of more than 200 people gathered in a park to protest racism and mark the anniversary. After Bro was done addressing the crowd, the activists dispersed without incident.

Heyer's mother, Susan Bro, said her daughter wouldn't want to be the center of attention on the one-year anniversary of the deadly protests.

Sunday marks one year after the original "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, when hundreds of white nationalists - including neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members - descended on Charlottesville in part to protest the city's decision to remove a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a park.

Violent fighting broke out between attendees and counterprotesters that day.

Authorities eventually forced the crowd to disperse, but a vehicle later barrelled into the crowd of peaceful counterprotesters. Two Virginia State Police troopers also died that weekend when their helicopter, assisting with public safety, crashed during the rally.

Authorities came under harsh criticism for underestimating the potential for unrest at last year's rally. The group was chanting, addressing police officers who were accompanying them: "Will you protect us?".

At one point on Saturday, dozens of officers in riot gear formed a line near where the rally was taking place, prompting many protesters to rush over yelling, "Why are you in riot gear?"
