LOCAL BLACK LIVES MATTER PROTESTS GIVEN THE GREEN LIGHT

Demonstrations in the Northern Rivers will go ahead tomorrow, in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States.

More than 600 people are expected to attend a protest against black deaths in custody in Lismore’s Spinks Park.

“We’ll have additional resources but we’re working with them we want to see a peaceful protest,” Acting Commander Cameron Lindsay said.

An event has also been organised for tomorrow afternoon in the Byron Bay Recreation Grounds.
