In the biggest protest yet in The City to demonstrate against police brutality and the death of George Floyd, thousands turned out in the Mission Wednesday afternoon in a youth-led march. The protest came on what is expected to be the final night of the curfew put in place. Here are some photos captured the early hours of the march. Also, on Wednesday, charges were upgraded against the Minneapolis officer accused of holding his knee to Floyd’s neck for at least eight minutes. Three other officers with him, were also charged Wednesday in connection with the death.
