HOUSTON – Hundreds attended protests for Houston-native George Floyd, who was killed after an officer kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes. Protestors said they seek justice against police brutality, as many others across the nation are holding similar demonstrations.
On Friday and Saturday, residents gathered in downtown and at Emancipation Park in Houston.
Additional rallies are scheduled throughout the weekend.
Here are some social media posts from the protests:
