Trump condemns racism on Charlottesville anniversary

The violence culminated with a man driving a auto into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a woman and injuring 19 people.

According to the Associated Press, the activists chanted, "Why are you in riot gear?" "But for folks like me, black and brown folks, folks in Black Lives Matter, we don't equate a heavy police presence with safety, so we see this as a perceived risk and increasing the possible harm that might occur to us".

President Trump grew criticism previous year for his initial response the 2017 "Unite the Right" rally as he said "hate" came from "all sides".

The demonstration is being held on the first anniversary of a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned violent and led to the death of a counterprotester.

President Donald Trump says he condemns "all types of racism and acts of violence" as he marks the one-year anniversary of deadly clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"How does that create a sense of community?" "Simply going to these events, we ARE responsible for violence, because we know there will be violence there".

Authorities have promised an enormous police presence to keep both sides apart and avoid the street brawls that broke out a year ago in downtown Charlottesville.

Charlottesville city councilman Wes Bellamy attempted to diffuse the tense confrontation between the protestors and the authorities.

After a few minutes, most demonstrators began walking away. The rest of the evening remained quiet. Deploying riot police along the security perimeter, law enforcement went on to erect concrete barriers and metal fences before setting up entry points with metal detectors to screen rally participants.

'We have a number of techniques to keep them separate, ' Newsham said. "It feels good that they're here in front of our store. It looked like a war zone a year ago compared to what it is today". The rally was planned by white nationalists across the country, with the stated reason being to protest the removal of a confederate monument.

In an interview with The Atlantic, Bro discussed in-depth the year since Heather was killed. Two Virginia State Police troopers also died that weekend when their helicopter, assisting with public safety, crashed during the rally.

A group of more than 200 protesters then marched to another part of campus.

On that day, white supremacists and counterprotesters clashed in the city streets before a vehicle driven into a crowd struck and killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

Clara Carlson was one of those counterprotesters.

In Washington on Saturday evening, almost two dozen police officers patrolled Lafayette Square, where members of the Washington chapter of Black Lives Matter were sprinkled through the park, seemingly standing on guard.

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. Let us be in one voice and tell them that they are wrong. I notice that Stonewall Jackson is coming down.

Sgt. James Dingeldein of the Park Police said his agency, the Washington police and the Park Service had met with Kessler and leaders of counterprotest groups to explain to them what is permissible on the grounds of the park.

But just a day later, Trump said there was "blame on both sides" for the violence in Virginia, condemning the anti-fascists who came "with clubs in their hands".

Saturday marks one year since a group of white nationalists descended on the University of Virginia's campus.

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

The security measures seemed to have worked as most of the Saturday's events proceeded in a peaceful manner. She said that she is still learning all the ways the United States treats people unfairly, and that Charlottesville has not changed much since past year. However, Kessler dropped his lawsuit last week and vowed to forge ahead with plans for a "white civil rights" rally Sunday in Washington, D.C.
