State of Emergency Declared for Charlottesville Anniversary

The governor of Virginia declared a  state of emergency  ahead of the anniversary of the Charlottesville protests.

Last year's "Unite the Right" rally  sparked violence  in Charlottesville that led to the deaths of  one counter-protester  and two state troopers.

Multiple events are planned to mark the anniversary.


Ralph Northam said he hopes everything stays peaceful, but he also urged Virginians not to engage with "planned demonstrations of hate, should those arise." The state of emergency declarations from Aug. 10-12 allow the state and city to mobilize more resources to help maintain the peace.
