Peaceful protest to begin at Linear Park

Members of a Facebook group called Brownsville Against plan to hold a protest Wednesday afternoon called Justice for George Floyd/Black Lives Matter Peaceful Protest.

They will gather at 3 p.m. at Linear Park in front of the Mr. Amigo walk of fame. From there they plan to walk towards the Brownsville Police Department and the Cameron County Courthouse.

Organizers are asking those who want to participate to keep the protest peaceful, not to interact with police or others, and to keep from turning the event violent. They are also reminding participants to practice social distancing guidelines.

They say the protest is being held to bring attention to the injustices in the U.S.
