Day Five of the George Floyd Protest in Lancaster Largely Quiet as Heat Saps Some of the Energy (PHOTO ESSAY AND VIDEO)
At least as of 5 p.m., the ongoing protest at the Lancaster Police Station on Chestnut was pretty quiet.
About 100-120 protesters, mostly young and about 90% white, marched through downtown with the standard BLM chants, and then heard from speakers.
A lot of white protesters took the bullhorn to talk about their “white privilege” or whatever – honestly the black speakers were more interesting – even as some black protesters demanded that black voices should be heard.
Lancaster police officers, including most of the female officers, joined the crowd late in the afternoon for an ongoing dialog in front of a large sheets of white paper on boards where protesters could write their concerns, demands and desires.
Here are some shots and video from today’s rally.
