Minneapolis, MN – Despite below freezing temperatures, community disdain over the killing of Amir Locke on February 2 has been widely shown to the authorities in a variety of ways in the days following.
Graffiti referencing Locke has been sprayed across the city landscape, including on the Minneapolis Police’s First Precinct building. City press conferences were disrupted, thousands marched downtown, and two caravan protests have occurred in Minneapolis, with one stopping outside the house of Interim Police Chief Amelia Huffman on February 6.
Protests are expected to continue as a student-led walkout of high schools occurred on Tuesday, February 8 starting at St. Paul Central and ending at the Governor’s Residence. A national solidarity rally is planned for 6 p.m. at the Hennepin County Government Center on Tuesday as well. Watch it live on Unicorn Riot:
