Dozens of people marched to a Richmond City Council meeting Tuesday night to protest the decision to red tag Burnt Ramen, an artist live-work warehouse in Richmond.
City inspectors declared the warehouse uninhabitable last week, shutting down the underground venue and forcing its owner Michael Malin and five others to find elsewhere to live.
Supporters met at a nearby park before the meeting and then marched about two blocks to the city council meeting. There, many of the protesters signed up to speak during the public comment period.
During his comments, Ramen supporter Travis James said the city should not generalize about the safety of artist warehouses.
