Charlottesville riddled with barriers, security and flowers on 'Unite the Right' anniversaryTuesday, August 14, 2018
Unite The Right" left three dead and dozens injured, the city is taking extra safety precautions this weekend ahead of the movement's 2018 rally reboot three hours away in Washington, D.C., Sunday. With the city eerily quiet from the lack of vehicle traffic, a group of around 50 anti-fascist supporters walked through parts of downtown on Saturday – many dressed in black and wearing headbands. Some members, reflecting their protest of white nationalism, carried a large banner reading: "Good Night, White Pride." Charlottesville was both riddled with concrete barriers, metal fences, security checkpoints and adorned with flowers, notes of solidarity and apologies for the violence that unfolded last August when white nationalists bearing torches marched through the University of Virginia campus. Amid heavy police presence on sidewalks and at checkpoints, police confiscated a pair of brass knuckles, a razor, knife and aerosol cans, city officials said. Two people were arrested on misdemeanor charges, one for trespassing and one for disorderly conduct. While the city prepared for the worst, it also took time to honor the memory of Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old legal assistant, who was hit and killed last year when a young Neo-Nazi slammed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters. Two Virginia state troopers also died when their surveillance helicopter crashed near the protests. On Wednesday, a section of 4th Street — where she died — was renamed "Honorary Heather Heyer Way" in her memory. Chalk messages, flowers and other mementos are still being placed at the site. In the window of a nearby shop, a large sign with a hand reads simply: "Strength." It's part of the #joinedinstrength campaign, similar to the one last year which had storefronts display teal hearts with "Cville" written in the middle of them. The Charlottesville Albemarle Convention and Visitors Bureau said mounted the "Joined in Strength" campaign to demonstrate its opposition to using the city "as a platform for hate again." When the "Unite" r... https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2018/08/11/unite-right-2018-charlottesville-va-dc-rally/966312002/
Heather Heyer's mom visits memorial in Charlottesville: 'It's not all about Heather'Tuesday, August 14, 2018
Jason Kessler, who wanted to hold a "Unite the Right 2" rally in the same place as last year. Instead, he and others moved the rally to Washington, leaving anniversary events in Charlottesville largely peaceful. Tensions flared Saturday night between protesters and law enforcement during a rally that began at the University of Virginia and ended a few blocks away from a secure area downtown. Bro said she was uneasy about making a public appearance on Sunday after Saturday's rally. "But I haven't chickened out yet," she said. She's grateful for the increased police presence after last year, she said, but the sheer scale was "a little bit of overkill," she said.Ultimately, she was glad she showed up on Sunday, she said. Survivors of last year's rally are still struggling to talk about what happened, and she hopes she can play a part in their healing."What happens every time in a group situation like that is I come in, needy people feed me with their energy and then I'm feeding it back out to them," she said. "It becomes this real flow of energy and I always leave healed and hopefully bring some healing and compassion to others."Kaylee Hartung reported from Charlottesville and Emanuella Grinberg wrote this story in Atlanta.

Charlottesville anniversary: Peaceful protests, few arrestsTuesday, August 14, 2018
Charlottesville, Virginia. In the end, fewer than two dozen white nationalists showed up.The events held in both Charlottesville and Washington, largely peaceful though tense at times, were part of a day of speeches, vigils and marches marking a year since one of the largest gatherings of white nationalists and other far-right extremists in a decade. One person was arrested in Washington on Sunday, and four others were arrested in Charlottesville.In Charlottesville, the mother of the woman killed at last summer’s rally visited the site of the attack, saying the country’s racial wounds still have not healed. In Washington, a phalanx of police and a maze of metal barriers separated the small group of white nationalists from shouting counterprotesters within view of the White House.Jason Kessler, the principal organizer of last year’s “Unite the Right” event, led the Sunday gathering he called a white civil rights rally in Lafayette Square. Kessler said in a permit application that he expected 100 to 400 people to participate, but the actual number was far lower: only around 20.Kessler’s group was dogged by jeering crowds from the moment they emerged from the Foggy Bottom Metro station; they marched about a mile to the White House ... https://www.pentictonwesternnews.com/news/charlottesville-anniversary-peaceful-protests-few-arrests/
