George Floyd

(St. Peter, MN) – Hundreds of protesters lined St. Peter’s Minnesota Square Park Thursday, seeking justice for George Floyd, the man who died in police custody in Minneapolis.

Indivisible St. Peter/Greater Mankato organized the rally, calling the gathering a public declaration that “George Floyd’s life matters, black lives matter, and the officers who murdered George Floyd, and the Minneapolis Police Department must be held accountable.”

The vigil was followed by remarks from Maurice Staley of NAACP Mankato, Bukata Hayes from the Greater Mankato Diversity Council, and Yurie Hong, founder of Indivisible St. Peter-Greater Mankato.
