Residents of Natick and surrounding communities came out in force for a peaceful, sign-filled, not-exactly-socially-distanced demonstration on Saturday afternoon to show support for fellow citizens and disgust at the latest examples of racism and police violence to grab national headlines.
Hundreds of protesters hoisted signs, chanted “Black Lives Matter,” and waved to a steady stream of honking vehicles in Natick Center, more than 1,300 miles from Powderhorn, the Minneapolis neighborhood where George Floyd died in police custody.
Natick Police Chief James Hicks issued a statement Saturday condemning the Minneapolis police officers as well.
