Some pictures from tonight’s march and rally for #blacklivesmatter!! Organized by Justice RVA with participants from pretty much the same wide swath of people who came out to disrupt City Council on Monday night.

Light up letter signs spelling out #blacklivesmatter
We blocked Broad street at 9th and had a die in. We also sang Amazing Grace, We Shall Overcome, And This Little Light of Mine, listened to speakers, and black participants made a memorial to their ancestors at 11th and Broad.
Look out for more actions over the next days, week, and year.
We will be working towards the list of demands until City Council acquieces or time comes to boycott and disrupt the UCI Bike races.

Thanks to All Saints Theater for making and bringing beautiful puppet memorials.

If anyone has a picture of two undercover cops please let us know. They were a pair of white guys (obvi), the taller one in a red hoodie and the shorter huskier one in a black sweatshirt. We followed them back to their car, a white jeep SUV which was parked in the law enforcement only zone at the John Marshall court building.
