May 31-June 6 was an eventful week of protests for Athens — beginning with one of Athens' largest protests and ending with a 1,500 person organized rally. The protests were sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and protesters around the country are calling for racial justice and condemning police violence.
