Bay Village demonstration rallies against social injustice

Demonstrators staged a protest march in Bay Village, Ohio, on Friday, June 5, as over 400 cities across the U.S. held marches to oppose racial injustice following the death of George Floyd of Minneapolis.

Floyd died last month after pleading for for his life as a Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on the man’s neck while handcuffed. The march started at Huntington Park and proceeded down Lake Road to Cahoon Memorial Park where the crowd laid down in silence for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the amount of time that Floyd lay pinned down on the ground as he died. The peaceful march then proceed to the Bay Village police station on Wolf Road with chants for social justice. Bay Village police bicycle officers observed the event and directed the orderly demonstrators throughout the march.   Photos by CONNOR STAROWESKY
