Claremonters protest the killing of George Floyd

Demonstrators gathered at the corner of Indian Hill and Foothill boulevards in Claremont Monday afternoon as part of a nationwide movement to protest the killing of George Floyd while in police custody. The protests started in Minneapolis last week, where Mr. Floyd died, however, by the weekend the sometimes violent clashes were happening across the nation with hundreds of thousands of participants. Locally, the demonstration was organized by Claremont Disarm Hate, a group of Claremont High School students formed last summer after the mass shooting in El Paso. Over one hundred people attended the 3:00 p.m. rally which became a march as the protesters walked down Indian Hill to Memorial Park. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
