For a third-straight day, protesters gathered in Boston Sunday calling for justice in the death of George Floyd, the Black man who died while in police custody in Minneapolis last week.

Demonstrations in Boston on Friday night resulted in 10 arrests and injuries to four officers, and crowds of protesters came out again on Saturday afternoon and evening in downtown Boston. On Sunday, a 3 p.m. protest kicked off from Government Center, with another scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Nubian Square.

Here are photos from Sunday’s rallies.
