Thousands take stand against racism at massive Vancouver protest (PHOTOS)

Jun 5 2020, 8:02 pm

Thousands peacefully gathered in downtown Vancouver on Friday to stand in solidarity against racism, police brutality, and injustice following George Floyd’s death at the hands of police last week.

Organized by Jacob Callender-Prasad with Vancouver’s Black Lives Matter chapter standing in solidarity, the demonstration took place at the Olympic Cauldron downtown.

Members of Metro Vancouver’s Black community gave moving speeches about their own lived experiences as Black Canadians and performed music and poetry to honour the lives lost to police brutality and stand against racism in all its forms.

Check out photos and videos from the protest below:
