Protesters gather for third night in Providence

Things remained peaceful for the most part except an ABC 6 camera lens was kicked in by one of those protesters.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) –  Dozens of protesters once again marching in the name of Breonna Taylor in Providence Friday night.

“We need justice for my people man. That’s mainly what it is,” said protester Raymond Walker, Jr. “They’re killing black people left and right. White people can walk into churches, shoot up everybody, and just get sent to jail. We get killed.”

The group, made up of mostly young people, marched past Providence businesses and restaurants. Those sitting outside applauded as they passed by.

The group marched from Burnside Park to the East Side of Providence and back downtown, blocking several intersections and streets.

“It’s just sad that it has to come to this point, where we have to do all this – block off streets. Do all of that just to be noticed,” said protester Denise Johnson of Providence.

Things remained peaceful for the most part except an ABC 6 camera lens was kicked in by one of those protesters.
