Pictures From Second Weekend Of Rallies In Boston

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A large crowd of demonstrators gathered outside Boston City Hall on Sunday, in another protest calling for and end to racism and justice in the killing of George Floyd.

Photos from the protest, which appeared to be peaceful, showed hundreds of people holding signs with messages like "Black Lives Matter," and "Justice for George Floyd."

Starting around 4 p.m., protestors listened to speakers on Boston City Hall Plaza.

Video showed the crowd chanting "we have nothing to lose but our chains."

The protest outside Boston City Hall was one of dozens planned over the weekend in Massachusetts, and one of hundreds that continued across the world calling for racial justice.

In Salem, demonstrators literally took to the streets by creating chalk murals that read "Black Lives Matter" and listed the names of dozens of people of color who have been killed by law enforcement in the U.S.

Another group also gathered outside Lynn City Hall on Sunday, with plans to walk to the Governor's house in Swampscott and call for more diversity and inclusion in Massachusetts government and law enforcement agencies.

At Bethel AME Church in Jamaica Plain, clergy held a funeral procession with three hearses followed by a memorial in honor of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.

Rev. D’Shondra Perry of Kingdom Builders Church in Dorchester sang at the interfaith service.
