Minneapolis, MN, July 21, 2017

After the police involved shooting murder of Justine Damond, the Black Lives Matter community of the Twin Cities, Police Watch, and loved ones of victims of police violence all gathered to march in solidarity and demand accountability from our city officials. 

Protesters marched peacefully to City Hall to attend the press conference held by Betsy Hodges regarding the MPD officer involved shooting death of #JustineDamond, only to be locked out of City Hall.

In response protesters occupied the light rail until being allowed in.

Once (FINALLY) allowed in, protesters in solidarity with victims of police violence entered the press conference, and Betsy Hodges made a quick and pretty cowardly exit. 

As a result, the press conference filled with various local, domestic, and international press, became a press conference of, by, and for the people!
