The occupation at Robert E. Lee has been going on since May 27th and continues to this day. BLMOCCUPIERS will not leave Monument Ave until Robert E. Lee is taken down.   

The Fence - The fence surrounding Marcus Davis Peters Circle (MDPC) was put up on Jan 27th by Department of General Services (DGS.) Initially the intent of the fence was to protect the work site to remove the statue, after the decision was confirmed by the courts. However, an appeal was filed to the Supreme Court of Virginia which has allowed the fence to remain until the case is heard. There is a possibility of it going all the way to Supreme Court of United States.
