Protest held along Central following Breonna Taylor grand jury decision

Protests

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Demonstrators took to the streets in Albuquerque over the lack of charges against Louisville police officers in the deadly shooting of Breonna Taylor in her home. “It hurts our community and it’s a green light to let the cops know they can continue to murder us and they will be okay,” said protester Barbara Jordan.

Wednesday night, hundreds marched from the University of New Mexico along Central Avenue to downtown Albuquerque, holding signs like ‘She was sleeping’ and calling the officers murderers. People also chanted and held signs saying things like ‘Abolish the police’ and ‘Justice for Breonna.’ Some made impassioned speeches.

“If they felt like all lives matter, they would be out here with us today,” another protester said.

Protesters then started marching down Central blocking the street. Some counter-protesters did show up but KRQE News 13 crews at the scene say things remained peaceful.
