Local NAACP chapter pushes for removal of Confederate flag seen on I-95

STAFFORD, Va. (AP) - Civil rights leaders are rallying opposition to a Confederate battle flag that flies over Interstate 95 in Virginia.

But the flag is on private property in Stafford County and the owner vows the flag will stay as a symbol of Southern heritage.
The Stafford chapter of the NAACP tells the Free Lance-Star of Fredericksburg that it has collected 200 signatures on a petition protesting the flag. NAACP President Aston Haughton calls the flag a "symbol of hatred and oppression."

He is hopeful the petition will encourage lawmakers to ban such symbols.

The deadly attack on an African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina, has sparked a national debate on symbols of the Confederacy.

Earlier this week, Gov. Terry McAuliffe moved to have the Confederate flag removed from state license plates.

Allegedly, millions of dollars have been raised online for the defense of Dylan Rooth, the South Carolina man who confessed to killing the "Emanuel 9."




Who is going to raise money to free Bree Newsome?  She's going to need it should she go to trial for performing a daring act in South Carolina that will also go down in the annals of history.


Early Saturday morning, just as the sun was breaking (June 27) Newsome scaled the flagpole at the South Carolina State Capital to pull down the confederate flag as Tyson stood by as a watchman.

"In the name of Jesus this flag has to come down," the activist from Charlotte, NC yelled as an officer from the South Carolina Bureau of Protective Services threatened to use a taser. 


"You come against me with hate, prejudice and violence.  I come against you in the name of God!," were her words as she dismounted the flag with the relic of America's racist past in hand.

Newsome elaborated on the c…
