Brigham And Women's Nurses Kneel To Show Solidarity For Protesters

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Nurses held a silent protest outside of Brigham and Women’s Hospital Thursday morning to show solidarity for the protesters demanding justice for George Floyd.

About four dozen nurses and supporters, mostly wearing black, spread along the sidewalk on Francis Street.

They took a knee for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, which is the amount of time former Minneapolis police Derek Chauvin held a knee on George Floyd’s neck.

“Tonight they’ll do the same right before change of shift at 6:30 p.m. for the nurses who are coming in at 7,” operating room nurse Ali Wagner said. She was among those demonstrating Thursday morning.

This protest was one of many that have taken place over the past week in Boston to demand change following the death of George Floyd.
