When a group of Confederate Flag wavers, the Virginia Flaggers, headed down the the VMFA for a day of flag waving, they were accosted by a man named Jonathan Romans who had been served warrants for accosting them before. He was arrested, and the Flaggers were very happy about that and will continue to protest for Confederate recognition.
- October will mark 5 years of our ongoing protests at the VMFA.
- We acknowledge and respect the rights of any citizen to do the same, but will not tolerate those whose behavior violates the law.
- The recent arrests and convictions are sending a clear signal to social justice warriors in Richmond that their uncivil behavior will not be tolerate.
