Protesters Gather in Brooklyn to Rally for Changes to Policing
Protesters marched in Brooklyn on Tuesday to commemorate George Floyd, who was killed in police custody one year ago, and to build momentum for changes and accountability in policing.
“I’m not only here for the one-year anniversary of George Floyd, I’m here for the hundreds and thousands of other people who have also been killed by racist police. How I’m feeling right now is that things need to change and we need to defund the police.” “This is emotional, this is a real emotional moment for us, because, you know, how many more times you have to keep getting together about this? How many times you have to keep begging the police to just treat us like people? How many times do we have to keep fighting for things that are just basic human rights to be able to live in this country?”
