FRAMINGHAM – An “anti-racism peaceful protest” is scheduled for Sunday, June 7 from 4 to 5 p.m. in front of the Memorial Building, said an organizer.

The protest is to “support justice for George Floyd, justice for all, and to protest racism, brutality, and violence.”

Individual who attend are encouraged to wear masks.

Last Monday, while handcuffed Floyd, a black man, died in police custody in Minneapolis.

A white police officer Derek Chauvin pushed his knee into Floyd’s neck, as he cried that he could not breathe.

On Tuesday, Chauvin and three other police officers were fired, after a bystander’s video showed the incident.

The FBI is now investigating the death, and on Friday arrested Chauvin.

Today, June 3, it was announced the other three former Minneapolis police officers on the scene when Floyd died were being charged with aiding and abetting a murder, and the murder case against former police officer Chauvin was upgraded to second degree.

There was a peaceful protest today organized by a Keefe Tech student in Framingham.

Last week,a 2016 Framingham High graduate organized a couple of protests in the city.
