Minnesota-based advocacy groups gathered outside the governor’s residence in St Paul on April 18 to protest the police shooting of Daunte Wright.
Protesters demanded justice for Dante Wright, George Floyd, and “all stolen lives”, according to the Facebook event’s description.
“The police have responded to protests of police murder with police violence,” the organizers wrote. “While giving a weak charge to Kim Potter for executing Daunte Wright and releasing her immediately on bail, authorities have brutalized and arrested protesters demanding justice.”
