A group supporting the Black Lives Matter movement is planning what they are calling a peaceful protest in Howell on Thursday, June 4, 2020.
The group is demanding justice for Geoge Floyd, a man who died in police custody in Minneapolis Minnesota.
The ceremony will begin at 3 a.m. in the city courtyard.
He thinks people want to protest peacefully. But they are also being warned that there are others who are trying to take advantage of the protests.
Says Murphy, “We are all ready to do whatever it takes to protect our citizens and our businesses. He said, ”I beg you, if you only stay away from it, no one has a destination for it.”
City and county facilities are scheduled to close for the day due to the protests.
The Howell of City Count also asks businesses around Coat House to change their times or get closer soon.
