Business owners thankful for denial of rally permits

Business owners thankful for denial of rally permits

The notice said that Kessler's event would "present a danger to public safety, and can not be accommodated within the area applied for, or within a reasonable allocation of City funds" or police resources.

Jason Kessler, an organizer of the "Unite the Right" rally, tries to speak on August 13, 2017.

The city also denied four other permit applications submitted by four separate people for the same weekend.

Jason Kessler, a Charlottesville resident who was the primary organizer of the August 12 protest, called "Unite the Right", requested the permit last month to hold a two-day rally for the event's one-year anniversary. Walt Heinecke, Brian Lambert and M.A. Shurtleff all applied to use various parks in downtown Charlottesville.

On his Twitter account and in a statement to NBC29, Kessler said he plans to file a lawsuit against the city.

"The decision is bogus and should be reversed in court", he wrote in an email.

The list of applicants included Jason Kessler, who organized the August 12th, 2017 "Unite the Right" rally at Emancipation Park. It was the clashing between the violent counter protestors and the white nationalists that led to an unlawful assembly being declared by police after about 30 minutes of trading punches, flagpole jabbing and throwing of chemical-filled water bottles between the two groups.

Pam Marraccini, the owner of Angelo Jewelry on the Downtown Mall, said when she heard about Jason Kessler's permit request, she knew it had to be rejected immediately. "We're going to be suing Charlottesville for this and many other civil rights violations starting early next year".

Clashes in the streets with counter-protesters ended in the death of anti-racism activist Heather Heyer when a member of the hard-right rammed a vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians, injuring 19 others.

"Communist government of Charlottesville denies permits for multiple right-wing rallies including the Unite the Right Anniversary Rally".

On Dec. 1, former federal prosecutor Tim Heaphy, who was hired by the city, released his findings of an independent review of how Charlottesville handled the rally.

The report claims Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas intentionally let some of the fighting take place so that an unlawful assembly could be declared.
