Peaceful demostration in Flint against the violence in the city
Dozens of people in Flint, Michigan, took to the streets to protest peacefully against the rise of gun violence.
The march started as scheduled at 11:30 a.m. Saturday.
The demonstration began five miles down Saginaw Street from our Savior Lutheran Church. The march ended at the City Hall.
The group mostly chanted to stop the violence in the city. One of the organizer claimed she’s tired from the violence in her city.
"If everyone can reach one, that way we can start at home and our communities that surround us...we can have a large impact," said Natasha Warren.
It was the 19th year Without Walls Outreach put together the Unity March.
“I have to be the change I desire to see, and that means getting involved in a march or a protest, joining together with my brothers and my sisters, connecting with other people, regardless if I like them or not,” community activist, Kenyetta Dotson explained. “We have to agree to disagree and be able to come to the table and leave our differences outside the room.”
One of the recent incident of violent behavior of black minority was when 18-year-old man attacked a Macy’s employee. Although the suspect is tracked down and will face criminal charge, many clack activists took to the social media to praise the act of violence against a white man.
