Trump commemorates Charlottesville violence with appeal to unity

GW to close some buildings for 'Unite the Right' rally

GW to close some buildings for 'Unite the Right' rally

James Alex Fields, Jr.is charged with driving his auto into a group of counter-protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of people.

Elle Reeve, a journalist for Vice News who filmed a viral documentary on the white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, last summer, says neo-Nazis continue to recognize her in public and make themselves known. "We hope the anniversary of those events passes peacefully".

Jeff Stern, State Coordinator for the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, said at the press conference that the governor's declaration would allow for the sufficient distribution and utilization of resources across the state - particularly around Charlottesville and in Fairfax County.

- Airbnb has threatened to cancel the accounts of anyone renting from them who participates in the Unite the Right rally in the District this weekend.

Exactly one year after the original rally, "Unite the Right 2"-titled like a bad Hollywood sequel-will be held in a park near the White House".

Authorities will be scrambling to prevent violence between participants and counterprotesters. An individual who plans to burn a Conderedate flag in the park also reportedly received a permit, according to ABC.

This weekend marks one year since protesters gathered, some in opposition to the removal of Confederate statues, others in support of white nationalist, white supremacist or alt-right ideology. The city is planning to establish a "defined security area" downtown where weapons will be banned. "I have to stand up for myself, I have to stand up for my young guns (employees) and any other black person who can't".

Betts' heroics not enough to lift the Red Sox over Jays
Betts is the first member of the Red Sox to hit for the cycle since Brock Holt on June 16, 2015 against the Braves. Estrada held the Seattle Mariners to one run, one hit and two walks in seven innings on Saturday in a 5-1 win.

"I'm not looking forward to what that's going to look like this weekend", she said.

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

"There is no intention to accommodate one side or the other", Newsham said.

Police are expecting people with the Unite the Right group to travel from the Vienna Metro Station to Foggy Bottom and then head to Lafayette Square.

More than 700 Virginia State Police personnel alone are trained and ready to be assigned if the need arises, Virginia State Police Colonel Gary T. Settle said.

James Fields Jr., 21, of Maumee, Ohio, is charged with murder in Heyer's killing under Virginia state law.

Meanwhile, Alan Popovsky, who owns several restaurants with president themes in D.C., said he plans to serve Sunday brunch at his restaurant, Lincoln, and then close for dinner, after his staff said they were anxious about their safety. James Fields was charged with a hate crime for the death of Heather Heyer and is now on trial.
