Protesters took to the streets a day after the Breonna Taylor grand jury verdict in Baltimore, with the protest going on for hours on end; attendance was estimated to be around 250 people.
The RAPP (Release Aging People in Prison) campaign demonstrated outside of the governor’s office, demanding the release of Arthur Green, a 70-year-old man who has been in prison for 44 years. He is currently dying of end-stage renal failure in prison hospice, and protesters call it inhuman to keep him away from his family during his last days.
Hundreds of protesters gathered for a 5th day in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center to demand justice for 20-year-old Daunte Wright, who was murdered by a police officer during a traffic stop. Police abandoned a previously heavy-handed strategy and allowed the crowd to disperse peacefully without tear-gas or munitions.
