Trump calls for peace on Charlottesville anniversary as residents on edge

Speaking to press in the days that followed, Trump stated, "You have people who are very fine people on both sides".

The "Unite the Right" rally resulted in violent clashes between people from the left and right of the political equation, which led to one of Trump's more heavily-criticised reactions when he failed to identify and directly censure the alt-right movement. In the year since, many residents like Wilson say the wounds haven't healed.

"It's nice that they're here to protect us", said Lara Mitchell, 66, who works at a shop selling artwork, jewelry, and other items. "But I think he can do better". "This is exactly who we are".

The "Unite the Right" rally is scheduled for Sunday in Lafayette Park, just across from the White House.

The event was one of the largest gatherings of white nationalists and far-right extremists in a decade. Miska was released on a summons.

Hundreds of students and protesters descended on Charlottesville's downtown mall and the University of Virginia on Saturday. Two Virginia State Police troopers also died that weekend when their helicopter, assisting with public safety, crashed during the rally.

Only took him a year.

. Lawmakers defeated every bill Charlottesville supported in the rally's aftermath, including measures dealing with cities' abilities to remove Confederate monuments. The city also has approved funds for affordable housing and workforce development.

"Bringing those two things together- over policing on the one hand, and angry young people".

The state of emergency will stay in place in Charlottesville through the weekend so people can go and honor Heyer's life along with the two state troopers who also died a year ago. And how is it using social media to spread its message? Weber emphasised that not everyone in Charlottesville agrees on the extent and nature of the city's problems. Some leading figures in the USA white nationalist movement have said they won't attend or have encouraged supporters to stay away. A few have dropped out altogether.

People across the country are marking the event's anniversary. Kessler said on Thursday that he would be in Washington on Saturday, as well, and that he did not know of any plans for other events in Charlottesville.

As reported previous year, following Heyer's death, "about 1,000 people attended a memorial service for Heyer in Charlottesville".

However, most sights will be set on Washington, DC, where white nationalists are once again planning a "Unite the Right" rally, which past year ended in tragedy in Charlottesville.

Sunday's rally comes less than three months before midterm elections to determine whether Republicans maintain their majority in Congress. Democrats and independents are defending 25 seats in the Senate, compared to eight for Republicans, and need to win an additional net 23 seats to take over the House of Representatives.

Lance also expressed optimism that law enforcement will be fully prepared.

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