However, today, in a tweet, he wrote: "The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division".

A day after tensions between police and community activists almost boiled over on the University of Virginia's campus, the city of Charlottesville plans to mark Sunday's anniversary of a deadly gathering of white supremacists with a rally against racial hatred.

National Public Radio faced wide criticism on Friday for running an interview with Kessler in which he recited white nationalist talking points and ranked the intelligence of different races on air.

Numerous weapons and items that could be considered an "implement of riots" (see list here) are forbidden in the secure area, as well as masks or hoods that hide one's identity.

"Last year they came with torches", said a large banner in downtown Charlottesville, according to the Washington Post.

Earlier this week, Gov. Ralph Northam issued a state of emergency saying "the related planned events will help us ensure that the state and the city have all available resources to support emergency responders in case they're needed". "While we are opposed adamantly to what we are going to hear, we know what our responsibility is - to protect First Amendment events, to protect Washingtonians and to protect our city".

In addition, two police officers died in a helicopter crash while they were monitoring the protests.

Kyle Rodland, who took his young sons to get ice cream downtown, said he felt much safer than past year, when he left town with his family and stayed with his parents after seeing people armed with long rifles walking around outside his home. Counter-demonstrators also have permits to assemble at the park, as well as at nearby locations.

Majuto said police "were not on our side" a year ago when white supremacists surrounded counterprotesters on the rotunda. 'I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence.

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".

One of those businesses, Chief Brian' Comfort Kitchen, is located just blocks from where the epicenter for the rally will be held and its owner said he will take a stand against those attending the Unite the Right rally.

Sunday's demonstrations and the opposing rallies are taking place in an atmosphere of heightened racial tension.

Carlson's group locked arms and chanted slogans of their own, including "Black Lives Matter!" and "No Nazis, No KKK, No Fascist USA!".

"Cops and Klan go hand in hand", he said. "They've never come to Washington", the woman told the mayor.

"We did not want to have the entire city militarized", said King.

"We draw a line at giving special accommodations to hate groups and hate speech", Local 689 President Jackie Jeter said in a statement. "But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides".
