Organizer: The event was organized by Jason Kessler, who already had last year's rally on his resume.

A major demonstration and march was later seen at the university, with protesters heard chanting "No cops". But some critics jumped on the president's wording of "all types of racism", saying this was just another version of Trump's claim previous year that "both sides" were responsible for the violence. There were no immediate reports of arrests on campus. The rest of the evening remained quiet.

Late on Saturday morning, when many businesses in a popular downtown shopping district were beginning to open, law enforcement officers outnumbered visitors. Concrete barriers and metal fences had been erected, and police searched bags at two checkpoints. Previous year was a whole different story. "It looked like a war zone a year ago".

Trump drew scorn after the Charlottesville bloodshed for initially avoiding any condemnation of the torch-bearing white nationalists who took part in that rally. Government and police officials in Washington have expressed confidence the city can manage the events without violence; the mayor and police chief have promised a massive security mobilization to keep protesters and counter-protesters apart.

Former Brazilian superstar footballer Ronaldo in intensive care
During his glittering career Ronaldo won the FIFA World Player of the Year award three times, in 1996, 1997, and 2002. The striker retired from the game in 2011 and reportedly owns a house in Ibiza and is a regular visitor to the island.

Heather Heyer, 32, was killed at last year's rally after James Alex Fields Jr. struck her with his vehicle. Two Virginia State Police troopers also died that weekend when their helicopter, assisting with public safety, crashed during the rally.

Last year, 22-year-old Clara Carlson faced down the group of white supremacists who marched through campus, surrounding her and a group of friends.

Clara Carlson was one of those counterprotesters. Among those, Airbnb said it would ban users who rent out their properties to participate in the Unite the Right rally, citing their terms of service, stating users agree, "To treat everyone in the Airbnb community - regardless of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age - with respect, and without judgment or bias".

Bro said Heyer, a paralegal for a Charlottesville law firm, helped her understand white privilege, and she has been attempting to explain that to others.

Pakistan's Imran Khan calls for more 'trustworthy' ties with U.S.
The party will have to seek formal support from smaller parties or independents to have Khan elected prime minister. Khan also hoped for India's participation in the SAARC summit, scheduled to be held in Islamabad .

"I remember the police just standing around. They weren't there to protect us", she recalled. I notice that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. Some activists have criticized the plans for a heavy-handed police presence this year, while local business owners have also questioned whether it's necessary to partially shut down the city for the weekend.

"Last year, I was afraid of the Nazis".

With many commenters noting her father defended "both sides" at the time, Ivanka got an earful for saying too little, too late. "But today, I feel like high tide is in". They unfurled a banner reading "Last year they came w/ torches".

No permits have been granted for white nationalist groups in Charlottesville but a counterprotest group has planned a protest Saturday night against the university for what it says is failure to stand up strongly enough against white supremacy.

I fear being fined if I speak out, Pogba says
It's going to be easier and it makes the team go higher. "I relish every challenge, it doesn't matter what, I love to work". I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.
