Subject: #BREAKING: Richmond Judge Extends Injunction Preventing The Removal Of The Lee Monument
A Richmond judge extended the injunction blocking the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue indefinitely, saying in court Thursday that the monument “belongs to the people.”
The man who filed the lawsuit more than a week ago, William C. Gregory, has 21 days to file another complaint following Circuit Court Judge Bradley Cavedo’s decision to dismiss the original complaint after ruling that it was flawed, 8News’ Laura Perrot reports.
“It belongs to the people,” Cavedo said of the statue in court Thursday.
A motion was also filed to add a new plaintiff, who wishes to remain anonymous, to the case. A hearing has been scheduled for July 23 at 2 p.m.
Yesterday, Governor Northam began the removal process, placing barricades and fencing at the historical site.
This as we enter our third week of lawlessness in the Capital of the Confederacy. Vandals struck the Richmond Howlitzers monument Saturday night. The destruction was streamed live by a local news station, and yet nothing was done to stop them, no investigation has been launched, no arrests made…
We are under siege and operating as such. We have not given up the fight, but are planning new strategies to keep putting the skeer on.
Stay tuned, and keep the faith!
I received this note from a supporter yesterday with a gift to the Va Flaggers. I share in the hopes that it encourages you as it did me…
“In spite of the recent setbacks…we will hold our head high.
Please do not be discouraged and remember we are in a marathon, not a sprint…
I enclose my check which I am sure you will put to good use for your noble work. Keep those flags flying!”
Lee will stand for at least another three weeks and possibly much, much longer. We need to brace ourselves here in RVA, because the heathens will rage, but find comfort and strength in the knowledge that God is in control.
For the Cause!
