DC, Charlottesville on edge as white nationalists prepare to rally

Charlottesville survivor speaks about recovery experience being hit by car during protest

That protest left one person dead and highlighted the growing boldness of the far right under Trump.

Sunday's protest comes as the alt-right - a loosely knit coalition of white nationalist, white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups - faces fractures and infighting.

The nation's capital is gearing up for a self-described white civil rights rally.

Sunday's rallies come at a time when the wounds from last year's clash in Charlottesville remain raw, particularly in regards to the death of counterprotester Heather Heyer, who was killed when a suspected neo-Nazi sympathizer drove a auto into a crowd.

The vice president also noted he and the second lady will be praying for the victims of that day in Virginia and continue praying Americans come together in new and renewed ways.

"Peace to ALL Americans!" he tweeted.

Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to Trump, said on Sunday that the media was "just not covering" the president's repeated denunciations of white nationalists.

"We must show that what sets us apart as citizens of this country are our values of respect, openness, and tolerance towards one another".

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", she said. Both were released on misdemeanour summons.

A year ago in Charlottesville, neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen and other members of hate groups marched through the University of Virginia campus shouting anti-Semitic slogans, then fought with counterprotesters in the city streets.

State police patrol the road in front of Market Street park with the state of Confederate General Robert E. Lee as they lock down the downtown area of Charlottesville.

A group of leftist protesters known as antifa - shorthand for anti-fascists - marched in silence Saturday afternoon to the site of Heyer's death, where those who wanted to pay their respects had used chalk to scrawl messages of remembrance in the street and on the walls of nearby buildings.

Clashes at the rally resulted in at least 30 injuries and the death of Heather Heyer, after a vehicle driven by James Alex Fields Jr. plowed into a group of counter-protesters.

In the immediate aftermath, Trump drew broad criticism when he initially appeared to establish a moral equivalence between the two groups of protesters and refused to criticise the extreme right wingers.

Christopher Malone, a political-science professor and dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Molloy College, said Trump's racially charged outbursts are part of a calculated effort to appeal to whites, especially those with a sense of cultural grievance, and is best expressed through his campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again".

In the wake of the demonstrations, Mr Trump said that there was "blame on both sides" for the violence.

"I think there is blame on both sides", Trump said during a press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower in NY. Almost two dozen people were also injured in the attack, which officials said was carried out by a 21-year-old white man from OH who had demonstrated with the white supremacist groups. He denies the allegations. She served as director of communications for the White House office of public liaison until she was sacked in December.

The White House has dismissed the book as "riddled with lies and false accusations" but has not addressed specifics.

All 650 tickets for the event, what U.Va. calls a "morning of reflection" have been sold, but the University will livestream the event on its Facebook page.
