Peaceful Crowd Of 1000 Marches To Rally In Downtown Everett

Everett

Police estimated the crowd that marched from the intersection of Everett and Broadway to in front of the City Municipal Building in downtown Everett, Washington Saturday afternoon at one thousand.

There were no incidents as folks gathered to hear from a wide variety of speakers including Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Eric Z. Lucas and Dr. Daria Willis, President of Everett Community College.

The program was put on by graduates of Everett High School.

At one point the crowd kneeled and was silent for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in a tribute to George Floyd.

That was the amount of time a police officer in Minneapolis knelt on Mr. Floyd’s neck who exclaimed he couldn’t breathe.

Mr. Floyd died and the officer has been charged with murder.

MyEverettNews.com followed the marchers from Everett Avenue to the front of the Everett Municipal Building on Wetmore and took photos along the way.

We’ll let the photos do the storytelling.
