Protesters made their voices heard on Saturday while marching through Pelham Bay Park more than a week after the police custody death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
At one point, participants laid on the ground the same way Floyd was pinned down with a knee to his neck. They repeated his last words, “I can’t breathe.”
The protesters also chanted “black lives matter” and told News 12 that they came in peace.
"Nobody here is rioting. Nobody here is fighting…We're here for peace," said one protester.
Floyd’s death has sparked many protests throughout the nation and world, each calling attention to police brutality and racism.
