Charlottesville Rejects Alt-Right Rally Planned for 2018

Charlottesville Rejects Alt-Right Rally Planned for 2018

Charlottesville officials also said Kessler had included no information on how he would be responsible for the behavior of participants or how he could be held accountable for their adherence to city regulations.

According to denial letters obtained by The Daily Progress, Charlottesville denied permits for five organizers, including counterprotesters, who wanted to organize events on August 11 and 12, 2018.

Kessler, who organized the original "Unite the Right" white nationalist rally at the park in August, submitted the request in late November, saying the event's goal was to "rally against government civil rights abuse and failure to follow security plans". It was the clashing between the violent counter protestors and the white nationalists that led to an unlawful assembly being declared by police after about 30 minutes of trading punches, flagpole jabbing and throwing of chemical-filled water bottles between the two groups.

Citing similar public safety constraints and insufficient police and financial resources, the city denied four other permit requests from opponents and supporters of Kessler to hold events in public parks on the anniversary weekend.

In the wake of the violence, President Donald Trump blamed people "on both sides" for what happened.

Venezuelan President Bans Opposition Parties From Elections
Venezuela has been mired in a worsening economic crisis characterized by shortages of basic goods and soaring inflation. The US state department said it was "an extreme measure" created to consolidate President Maduro's power.

Last August, white nationalists flocked to Charlottesville under the banner of "Unite the Right" to protest the city's planned removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from Emancipation Park.

The city said it couldn't guarantee it has sufficient funds for police to keep the event free of violence. "BUT WE WON'T BE STOPPED", Kessler wrote on Twitter. " The application also says the anniversary rally is meant to memorialize "the sacrifices made by political dissidents" at his rally earlier this year".

Clashes in the streets with counter-protesters ended in the death of anti-racism activist Heather Heyer when a member of the hard-right rammed a vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians, injuring 19 others.

Kessler called the permit decision "bogus" and said he'll file a lawsuit.
