Peaceful Demonstrations Held in Rockland Saturday Protesting George Floyd Murder in Minneapolis

Demonstrators gathered peacefully Saturday at Memorial Park in Spring
Valley to march in honor of George Floyd, the man whose death last week
led to the arrest of a police officer in Minnesota, and set off massive
protests all over the country. Traffic was disrupted on Main Street in
Nyack by demonstrators, many holding signs that read “Black Lives Matter”
and “We Need Justice Now,” while Rockland’s Commissioner of Human Rights, Constance Frazier, took part in a protest in Nanuet on Route 59 at
Middletown Road. In a statement, Rockland County Executive Ed Day said he could “find no rationale at all” for the force used by the police against
Floyd and reminded everyone to give the justice system a chance to come to
a conclusion. In his daily coronavirus press briefing yesterday, New
York’s governor Andrew Cuomo said George Floyd must not have died in vain…
