"Alt-right" leader Richard Spencer led a white supremacist protest in May and the KKK rallied in July against the statue's removal. Kessler organized the Saturday rally to protest Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from Emancipation Park.

The Daily Progress in Charlottesville reported that the white supremacists began marching at the college's Nameless Field and ended at the rotunda, where police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly. I have directed them to coordinate with federal and local authorities and take every precaution necessary to ensure the safety of their personnel, the Charlottesville community and rally attendees.

He also argued that the expected 2,000 counter-protesters coming to town to oppose white nationalists and other groups were not part of the two rallies planned for the downtown parks, but would follow Kessler's rally wherever it is held.

Units of the Virginia National Guard will be placed on stand-by, he added.

With hundreds of people expected to attend the rally as well as thousands of counterprotestors, the city announced on Monday that the rally had to move to the larger McIntire Park.

They also noted that the city moved only the Unite the Right rally and not rallies planned in Justice and McGuffey parks by organizations opposed to Kessler's beliefs.

McAuliffe, a Democrat, said numerous people at the rally will "express viewpoints many people, including me, find abhorrent".

McAuliffe said there have been communications from extremists who may try to commit acts of violence against participants or police.

McAuliffe asked both supporters and opponents of the rally to stay away.
