Peaceful protesters demonstrating in New York City today expressed their frustrations with the current state of the country.
“We can’t live like this anymore,” a protester told CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz.
“That’s not just for black folks, it’s for everyone. We cannot live like this anymore and will fight till the end, until we can have our peace. No justice. No peace,” the protester said.
She held a sign with pictures of Danroy "D.J." Henry Jr., an African-American football player at Pace University who was shot by a white New York police officer.
“Every demonstration is important. I’m not going to say it’s important to have the peaceful ones and not the peaceful ones. All of them are important. Every single one is important until people can hear us. People know who we are… People like this, D.J. Henry, are important. George Floyd was important. Trayvon Martin was important. Mike Brown was important. These people are all important… We can't forget about them,” the protester said.
