A far-right paramilitary group which was present in Charlottesville, Virginia last year as deadly violence unfolded is planning a demonstration this weekend just 40 miles away, has learned.

The anti-government ‘Three Percenters’ militia plans to parade Saturday outside the Verona, Virginia offices of a company that provides bonds for federal immigration detainees.

The local sheriff has already asked for assistance from state troopers and other nearby law enforcement, fearing a repeat of the Charlottesville violence last August that left an anti-racism demonstrator dead.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-leaning advocacy group that monitors what it calls ‘hate groups,’ says the Three Percenters are part of the ‘radical right.’

‘They are a self-styled militia driven by conspiracy theories on the radical right,’ SPLC spokesman Ryan Lenz told The News Virginian in the nearby town of Waynesboro.

Three Percenters members were recognized in Charlottesville by their distinctive patches, which feature a Roman numeral ‘III.’ Some also include the image of a Confederate battle flag.

They openly carried military-style rifles during the August ‘Unite the Right’ rally. But the group will not need a permit to hold their next event, the local sheriff told the paper.

The state of Virginia allows residents over the age of 18 to openly carry loaded rifles in public without a special license.

‘We are taking this incident seriously and, as a precautionary measure, I have reached out to the Virginia State Police and regional local law enforcement for assistance,’ Sheriff Donald Smith said in a press release.
