Protests have erupted across the nation after a horrific video emerged of George Floyd’s death under the knee of a police officer in Minneapolis, in addition to several other recent instances of police brutality against African Americans in the U.S. In Cupertino, South Bay Allies for Black Lives Matter organized a peaceful demonstration on June 6. Protesters gathered in Hoover Park at 2 p.m. to hear black community members give speeches, in which they shared their personal experiences and urged everyone to continue fighting together against racism. The march moved to gather in front of the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office on De Anza Boulevard before heading back to the park at 5 p.m.
