A rally on Saturday in downtown South Bend raised chants of “Black Lives Matter” and called for unity and police reform in the city while sending a message to Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Activists, some local and some not, shared their own experiences with police brutality and read a list of demands that they hope will inspire change in the wake of the recent fatal officer-involved shooting of Eric Logan.
Protesters carried signs that said “Justice for Eric Logan” and “Do The Right Thing Pete.”
The protest began at the John R Hunt Plaza and participants then marched to the County City Building. One organizer said another event is being planned at the County City Building on August 3rd.
