ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – In Albuquerque, protesters took to the streets once again for what is so far the third straight night of peaceful demonstrations. The group marched from the University of New Mexico camps to Civic Plaza and back again.
The peaceful protest followed a silent protest held on the Plaza on Wednesday afternoon. Groups of business owners, professionals, and community leaders observed silence for eight minutes and 46 seconds, the amount of time George Floyd‘s neck was pinned under an officer’s knee.
