Multiple groups of protesters converged at City Hall in Athens, Georgia on Thursday, June 25. One group supported the Black Lives Matter movement and rallied against police violence, racial injustice and the then-proposed Athens-Clarke County budget, while the other group thanked and supported police.
Both groups had sound amplification systems attempting to speak over one another until the Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement founder Mokah Jasmine Johnson led one group on a march to the UGA arch where the protesters continued to listen to speakers and chant. There was one violent incident after the official rally ended. For more information, click here to read The Red & Black's news story.
