We Demand Justice For George
Across the street from Falcon Arms apartments in Falcon Heights MN.
A picture of a white sign with hand made rainbow bubble letters. The sign is nailed to a tree. The sign reads: "WE DEMAND JUSTICE for GEORGE."
This sign and tree are located at the Philando Castile memorial garden. The memorial space is at the site of Philando's fatal shooting by Falcon Heights police officer in 2016. Philando Castile's death and story has directly impacted the activism, public sentiment, and advocacy work towards ending police brutality in George Floyd's death in 2020. Here, in Philando's memorial garden, someone has placed a rainbow sign of solidarity demanding Justice for George Floyd. Philando Castile's death garnered national and international attention. Officer Yanez was prosecuted (rare) and was acquitted.
