After a week of protesting throughout the city following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, demonstrators are taking to the streets in Brooklyn again to get their voices heard.
News 12’s Justine Miller was in Downtown Brooklyn after marching more than three miles with protesters from Grand Army Plaza to the 78th Precinct and Brooklyn Borough Hall.
They kept going toward the Brooklyn Bridge, all while saying, “no justice, no peace” and “say his name.” There were also important items handed out, including food, water, band-aids and sunscreen. 
The demonstrators stopped traffic in some area for more than an hour. It remained peaceful and had a moment of prayer. They say they will continue to protest until their voices are heard.
