A protest against the death of Minnesota man Daunte Wright in a clash with police spread across Hollywood on Thursday night, as several hundred people marched and held a vigil at Sunset and Vine.
Police were in force to monitor the event, which saw protesters take to the street in a march that began in the middle of the evening. The walkers chanted the name of Wright and Black Lives Matter.
The street protest follows another earlier this month in Hollywood over the death of Louisville, Ky., Resident Breonna Taylor. This demonstration prompted a more aggressive police response.
Thursday night’s protest in Hollywood was one of many nationwide protests this week, as the death of Wright and the trial of former cop Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis over his role in the death of George Floyd escalated tensions.
