RVA Counter-Protests Against New-CSA
Hundreds of marchers from the "Richmond Stands United for Racial Justice" rally approach Stuart Circle on Monument Avenue, in Richmond, Virginia on September 16, 2017 to counter planned pro-Confederate statue demonstrations. A block west, at the Robert E. Lee statue on Monument Avenue, a small group of pro-Confederate supporters and other counter-protesters engaged each other in a mostly peaceful manner. Counter-protesters greatly outnumbered the supporters of Confederate statues along Monument Avenue. Richmond Police arrested seven people during day's activity..
