  • Road closures map for Unite the Right 2 rally

President Trump marked the first anniversary of deadly racial violence in Charlottesville, on Saturday with an appeal to peace and national unity.

During an interview this summer, Kessler said he was still "coming to terms" with what happened at last year's Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville and said he apologized to the family of Heather Heyer, who was killed when a motorist drove his vehicle into a group of counter-protesters.

Her father was slammed last year for saying that there was "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" in the wake of the riots, which left 32-year-old Heather Heyer dead.

The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division.

"We must come together as a nation", Trump wrote on Twitter from his golf club in New Jersey.

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

The group took part in last year's Unite the Right rally, but has not announced plans regarding Sunday's rally in Washington, D.C.

This follows a wave of white nationalist events across the country so far this month, including one in Portland and one in Berkeley.

Rally participants are likely to be outnumbered by passionate counter-protesters.

On August 12, hundreds of white nationalists - including neo-Nazis, skinheads and Ku Klux Klan members - descended on Charlottesville in part to protest the city's decision chose to remove a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a park.

Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser and Metropolitan Police Department Chief Peter Newsham answer questions from reporters about the city's preparations for the white nationalist-led rally marking the one-year anniversary of 2017 Charlottesville "Unite the Right", protests in Washington, August 9, 2018. She said she has activated emergency operations aimed at protecting property and people. Thirty-two-year-old counter-protester Heather Heyer was killed by self-described white supremacist James Alex Fields Jr., who rammed a auto into a crowd at high speed. "It's so fraught with what's happened that I feel I need to be away this weekend", McKeithen says.

The city says law enforcement at the access points are conducting consensual checks for objects that were banned as a security measure during the weekend anniversary of last summer's violence.

Ryan recalled how a group of students and community members faced off against the white supremacists near a statue of Thomas Jefferson on campus, calling it a "remarkable moment of courage and bravery". Two state troopers also died that day in a helicopter crash near Charlottesville.

"We are unstoppable, another world is possible", "We remember Heather Heyer" and "Black Lives Matter". "This year, I'm afraid of the police", Woolfork said. The Governor has declared a state of emergency in Charlottesville.

Last year's protests began August 11 and saw hundreds of neo-Nazi sympathizers, accompanied by rifle-carrying men, yelling white nationalist slogans and wielding flaming torches in scenes eerily reminiscent of racist rallies held in America's South before the Civil Rights movement.

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