A small band of protestors, armed with DayGlo green picket signs, marched through downtown Fort Worth on Friday night. In the wake of what CNN dubbed the deadliest attack on police officers since 9/11, people of all ethnicities assembled to discuss solutions to the problems the country is facing and to demand an end to bloodshed – for both sides.
The No More Rally will be held tonight/Sunday and tomorrow in Sundance Square. As the group approached Sundance Square Plaza, security personnel on bicycles radioed in in the location and number of marchers. Police and private security kept a respectful but vigilant watch. The protestors chanted, “All lives matter,” “No justice, no peace,” and “Protect us, serve us, don’t shoot us.“ As they marched, more people fell in behind them. After a few trips around the plaza, the group made its way north to the steps of the Tarrant Count Courthouse. Police on bicycles blocked traffic for the group to pass safely then positioned themselves down the street to observe. The march quickly transformed into a community meeting, an open forum for people to speak about their fears and their need for representation in city government.
