ATHENS, Ala. – A peaceful rally was held in Athens Sunday afternoon to demand justice for George Floyd.
Floyd died in police custody after a Minneapolis police officer was seen on video kneeling on his neck.
Dozens marched while holding signs and chanting, “No justice, no peace. Justice for George Floyd.”
“Athens Alabama can and will hold a peaceful protest,” said resident Brittany Green. “Athens Alabama does matter. We stand for what’s right. As you can see, we have brought all colors together for a common cause.”
