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.
