WASHINGTON, D.C.- The same man who organized the violent and ultimately deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA, one year ago is the organizer of what he calls a “White Civil Rights” rally scheduled for Sunday evening here in Washington, DC.
Jason Kessler has a permit for a “Unite the Right” event in Lafayette Park across the street from the White House.
The President will not be at home, but Kessler has permission from the National Park Service for a gathering of up to 400 people.
Counter-protestors are planning simultaneous events for up to 25-hundred people—also in Lafayette Park as well as two other locations nearby.
In the clip above, Washington, D.C. correspondent Drew Petrimoulx reports on preparations in the nation’s capital and efforts to make sure the events are peaceful and safe.
