Protesters in downtown Atlanta.

A protest took place in downtown Atlanta last week, Sept. 24, one of many that have happened and are happening throughout the country. The protest involved the Black Lives Matter movement with a focus on protesting against police violence, the crowd chanting things such as “don’t shoot” and “unity.” With the recent police shootings, tensions have been rising and many families of lost loved ones are urging protesters to stay peaceful. By the time this footage was taken, the protest seemed to be well under way with multiple police officers on the scene, and did not look to be ending any time soon.
