National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality 

A spirited group of demonstrators showed up at Woodruff Park Thursday afternoon to rally and march as part of the National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality. Following the rally at Woodruff Park more then 50 protesters marched to the Atlanta Detention Center briefly shutting down one side of Peachtree Street. Outside the Detention Center a “speakout” was held. As protesters spoke cheers could be heard from prisoners inside the Detention Center.
