Multiple protests are erupting across the country, including in Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Wisconsin, following the death of George Floyd, and are expected to continue through the weekend.
In New York City, hundreds of people protesting peacefully wearing face masks could be seen gathering outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
In Kentucky, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer asked for protesters to be peaceful in his city, following Taylor’s death in March.
“These protests certainly reflect the anger, the hurt, the frustration, and the exhaustion of so many in our community in our country, sick of seeing story after story of black lives ending at the hands of law enforcement,” he said.
“Protesting is a time honored American tradition and I honor, support, and will fight for the right to peacefully protest and demand change. Peaceful protests. Let’s remember what Breonna’s family said this morning about what Breonna would want at a time like this,” he added.
Fischer said Louisville would not tolerate violence and will protect the city and its residents from any attempts of violence or property damage.
He also reminded protesters that the city remains in the middle of pandemic, urging people to be safe with their health and the health of others.
