On Wednesday, Gov. Ralph Northam and the city both declared states of emergency, citing the "potential impacts of events" in Charlottesville during the anniversary weekend. "We join the Commonwealth in declaring a state of emergency in advance of these planned events to ensure all available resources are in place and that we are fully prepared to keep the peace in Charlottesville August 10-12". At least one rally is being organized on the University of Virginia campus by a group of student activists, UVA Students United. They will start at Freedom Plaza, but also plan on marching to Lafayette Park.

On Sunday, thousands of counter-protesters are slated to attend multiple rallies against white supremacy in Washington, DC.

"Nothing would excite us any better than for this to be noneventful and folks to go home and it be a peaceful weekend for all", Settle said.

Puryear recognizes the white nationalist's ability to exercise their First Amendment rights.

But he doesn't believe local leaders have spoken up enough against these types of demonstrations.

Wheeler added, "We've integrated our communications systems with the Virginia State Police and we've learned some real lessons about how to secure our downtown and especially what is now called Market Street Park".

"I was just shaking I could not believe what I was seeing", said Henderson. However, Brackney said that such knowledge would not dramatically change plans.

Chief Newsham said the main goal is to make sure property does not get damaged and people do not get hurt.

NBC12 will have crews in both Charlottesville and D.C. throughout the weekend and will have updates both on air and online. "For one thing, our police forces here have a lot of experience with demonstrations".

Park Police will also be on hand and the National Park Service said any approved groups will be sectioned off to different areas of the park.

On Aug. 7, 2017, "Unite the Right" organizer Jason Kessler said in a video posted to Twitter that Airbnb was canceling protest participant's reservations, and he told The New York Times that "hundreds of people have been put out of their accommodations".

Attendees: According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the rally's confirmed speakers include neo-Nazi Patrick Little, former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, South African survivalist Simon Roche, a guy from Patriot Prayer, the editor of the Revolutionary Conservative, Kessler's reported attorney Corey Mahler, and "pro-white" town manager Tom Kawczynski. Meanwhile, authorities largely stood by on the fringes of the action near a downtown park with a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee that the city wanted to remove.

Last year's Unite the Right rally resulted in the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, as well as Virginia State Police troopers Lt. H. Jay Cullen, III and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates.

The man accused in that attack, James Alex Fields of OH, has been charged with first-degree murder. The man accused of killing Heyer faces murder and hate crime charges.

"I sat in a closed session briefing - probably two months ago - about Charlottesville, with the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation amongst others, and asked if Russian intermeddling had do with fomenting the flames of what happened in Charlottesville", he said.
