Hundreds march in West Palm Beach to protest police brutality



Local protests against police brutality continued Saturday in West Palm Beach, this time organized by 19-year-old, Weidmayer Pierre. It was one of dozens of mobilizations in Florida against police brutality, sparked by the death of George Floyd, who died May 25 at the hands of police in Minneapolis.

Hundreds marched along West Palm Beach’s Belvedere Rd and into the city streets, chanting for reform after initially flanking past a large stockade of police officers. No incidents were reported during the march.

They held up signs and their fists and the memory of George Floyd. They also held signs with slogans saying “Black Lives Matter” and “No Justice No Peace” during the march that was peaceful.
