Daily local protests demanding justice for George Floyd and other Black Americans killed by law enforcement continued Wednesday in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, led by a large march and rally in Boston.
That march, led by members of the city’s Black youth who organized the For the People coalition, began at Nubian Square and proceeded to Boston’s City Hall Plaza.
Here are photos and social media posts from Wednesday’s events.
Hundreds of youths marched from Nubian Square to City Hall Wednesday, demanding that the city reallocate 10 percent of the police budget to community needs.
