Dozens More Protests Planned In Massachusetts

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Dozens of peaceful protests are planned this weekend throughout Massachusetts, almost two weeks after the in-custody killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.

Saturday will mark the 11th night of demonstrations across the nation calling for justice for George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

While there have been some incidents of violence following the peaceful protests in Massachusetts, Gov. Baker said "the vast majority" of attendees are peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights, and most have been wearing face coverings in the process.

Baker also thanked law enforcement, EMS, firefighters, and the National Guard, "for doing your jobs to protect your communities while ensuring others the right to speak out."
