The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis has sparked outrage across the United States. Protests have taken place in major cities across the country including New York City, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Louisville, Minneapolis, Los Angels, Oakland, Seattle, Washington D.C., and etc. There have also been protests closer to home in Buffalo and Rochester.

Although many of these protests have remained peaceful, others have not. Of those that turned violent, looting, vandalism, and assaults have erupted.

In Buffalo and Rochester, protestors vandalized city monuments, set vehicles ablaze, and caused property damage to countless businesses.



A group has planned a “March Against Police Brutality” in Niagara Falls on June 5th, 2020, starting at 6:00pm. Social media posts say that the group will meet at the Hyde Park Ice Pavilion and march to the police station on Main Street.

Many residents have voiced concerns over the possibility of violence erupting during the demonstration. Similarly, many residents have questioned the city’s ability to handle such problems if a large number of people show up.

The Niagara Reporter will capture the demonstration in Niagara Falls live on Facebook.
