Garden Grove

Protest touches on race and more


A WOMAN at Saturday’s “Garden Grove Solidarity Protest” in the Village Green park wore a mask bearing the last words of George Floyd: “I can’t breathe.” He died in police custody in May in Minneapolis. The officers involved have been fired and are facing criminal charges (Orange County Tribune photo).

Several hundred people gathered at the Village Green park in Garden Grove Saturday afternoon to protest against the deaths of African-Americans in incidents with police, and also to lobby for the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and for the creation of an ethnic studies requirement for students in the Garden Grove Unified School District.

Speakers at the “Garden Grove Solidarity Protest” covered subjects such as the “Black Lives Matter” campaign, but also civil rights issues for Hispanics, gays, Palestinians and women.

After the rally in front of the clock tower at Main and Euclid streets, some members of the crowd marched north on Euclid.

It was the second recent rally at the park. An earlier event, held on June 3, attracted a crowd estimated at 3,000 to 4,000 people.

  1. Who are the funders? China through Houston consulate office? Iran via Hamas? Follow the money y’all. Organic protests are not bought. America.
