Airbnb Cancels Bookings, Deletes Accounts Of People Attending White Supremacist Rally

Saturday's rally marks the second time in six weeks that Charlottesville has faced a protest from white supremacist groups for its decision to remove the statue.

But Friday night, a judge sided with the white nationalists and ordered the city to allow them to gather in Emancipation Park, where local leaders promise to have hundreds of law enforcement officials monitoring events.

"We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for", he wrote.

Ellis put some of the blame for the strife in Charlottesville on President Donald Trump and his political agenda.

Charlottesville, once home to Thomas Jefferson, is known as a progressive city of about 47,000 people.

Cliff Erickson leaned against a fence and took in the scene.

"We're going to find a way to get them here one way or the other", Kessler added, also noting that he plans to go forward with a company boycott or class-action lawsuit.

"Both sides are hoping for a confrontation", he said.

White nationalists clashed with counter-demonstrators in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, prompting the governor to declare an emergency and stop a rally to protest the planned removal of a Confederate general from a public park.

"Virginia is the birthplace of the rights to freedom of speech and peaceful assembly that make our country great", McAuliffe said.

Those countering the racist factions-which some describe as the "Alt Right" movement-said it was not sufficient, as some have argued, to simply ignore this weekend's gathering or let the movement of white nationalism fester in the absence of rebuke. Kessler, a Charlottesville resident, blames what he calls "the anti-white hatred that's coming out of the city".

Officials had already deployed police to maintain order and McAuliffe had placed the Virginia National Guard on standby.

Many downtown businesses will be closed [Saturday] on what would normally be a busy day at the height of the tourism season.

At least one person was arrested and several others treated for minor injuries, according to local newspaper The Daily Progress. However، the town has become a focal point for white nationalists after the city council voted to remove a status of General Lee. I'm genuinely scared to go down there. "I place the blame for a lot of what you're seeing in American today right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the president".

They were also heard to yell the Nazi slogan "blood and soil" during the march in Charlottesville, Virginia, reported the New York Post. "We want to change the narrative by telling the true story of race through public spaces".

Debate over the Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville began when an African-American high school student started a petition more than a year ago to have it removed. It was previously called Lee Park. The statue remains in the park pending a judge's ruling expected later this month.
