Police Separate Opposing Groups at Huntington Beach George Floyd Demonstration

Police separated anti-racism and anti-police brutality demonstrators and a smaller group of counter protesters during a demonstration in Huntington Beach, California, on June 6, according to ABC7.

CBS Los Angeles reported that protests remaining “mostly peaceful” as “police and sheriffs stood shoulder-to-shoulder, dividing the groups”.

But later, police told CBS, “at least six people were arrested after protests became violent.”
