BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Friends and family members across Massachusetts came together to remember the loved ones they lost to police brutality.
Mass Action Against Police Brutality, a local advocacy group, hosted a rally Saturday; demanding cases be reopened for police brutality cases.
The rally was held at 1 p.m. at Terrence Coleman Park.
This rally is one of many, in Massachusetts as well as the rest of the country, being held as part of a national day of action.
Other states participating include California, New York, Ohio, Texas, Florida and Georgia.
They were planned since March 8 will mark the first day of former police officer, Derek Chauvin’s, trial in the killing of George Floyd last year.
Mass Action Against Police Brutality said Saturday’s rally was “the next step in a series of family-first events and activities aimed at placing the axis of the national fight back on the central demands of most families in every city.”
