Charlottesville Protests - 5-30-2020 - VIDEO

You can watch the VIDEO on YouTube at the following link

Saturdays protest was organized after the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Floyd died while being pinned to pavement beneath a Minneapolis policeman’s knee for more than eight minutes

A staging area was set up on 5th street across from the OMNI in the staples parking area. The plan was march from there to the police station. What appeared to be a caravan of vehicles with the emergence flashers on drove over to east market street past the police station 

During the entire event we were impressed with peaceful non-confrontation atmosphere, there was no visible evidence of a police presence, other than some bicycle officers who helped redirect traffic.
