Russia Dismisses US Allegation of Role in Charlottesville Racial Violence

Multiple events are planned to mark the anniversary of the 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, which resulted in the deaths of 32-year-old Heather Heyer and Virginia State Police Troopers Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, III and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates. He also plans to refuse service to any person harassing employees or wearing white nationalist or Nazi symbols or attire.

"I don't know exactly what will happen, but it probably will not be good", tweeted Richard Spencer, a leader of the so-called "alt-right" movement, who said he would be staying away from the rally.

A release on the emergency declarations said this is to address the potential impacts of events in and around Charlottesville and Washington, D.C. that will take place this weekend.

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

Trump said that he condemns "this blatant manifestation of hatred, fanaticism and violence on the part of many parties". This is reported by Congressman of the Republican Party, Tom Garrett, according to CNN.

And in Wisconsin, Paul Nehlen, the leading Republican running to fill the seat in Congress now held by retiring Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, has emerged as a leader of the alt-right movement. "They didn't arrest her", he says. "For the anniversary of that hard August weekend which resulted in three lost lives, the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and the University of Virginia are working closely with law enforcement and public safety agencies from around Virginia to plan for potential events and to keep our city safe from violence", said Charlottesville's Interim City Manager Mike Murphy.

Chaos erupted before the event even began, with participants and counter-protesters brawling in the street.

Albemarle County resident John Miska, 68, Algenon Cain, 28, of Red Springs, N.C. and William Hawkins Jr., 53, of Amelia, Va., were arrested by law enforcement personnel downtown Saturday for disorderly conduct, trespassing and public intoxication, respectively, on the one-year anniversary weekend of the white nationalist Unite the Right rally.

A permit for a counter-protest was granted Thursday to the Answer Coalition, a group that has urged "mass action" on Sunday to protest what it described as racists, fascists, neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
