The city of Charlottesville, Virginia, has denied permits for a second "Unite the Right" rally on the anniversary of the one that resulted in a person's death, The New York Times reports. 

City spokesperson Miriam Dickler said in an email obtained by The Daily Progress that the city has denied five separate applications, including one from white nationalist Jason Kessler, the person who organized the previous march.

"The proposed demonstration or special event presents a danger to public safety and it cannot be accommodate within a reasonable allocation of city funds and/or police resources," read notices signed by City Manager Maurice Jones.

"The decision is bogus and should be reversed in court," Kessler said in a statement for NBC29. "We're going to be suing Charlottesville for this many other civil rights violations starting early next year."

The city also denied permits for the same weekend, Aug. 11-12, to Charlottesville City Councilor Bob Fenwick, University of Virginia professor Walt Heinecke, as well as Kesller-ally Brian Lambert. All those applications were rejected over concerns for public safety.
