Peaceful Protest Held In Yankton

Jun 1, 2020 | ,

(KVHT) – On Sunday night, Yankton joined nationwide protests following the death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd. Floyd’s death has set off a wave of protests not only in Minneapolis but across the nation. This weekend, protests were held in Sioux Falls and Rapid City, with the participants including Floyd’s family members. During the Yankton protest, a group of demonstrators gathered near Discovery Bridge and marched down Broadway Avenue. The estimated 30 people stopped briefly at one corner before spending a longer stretch of time at one of Yankton’s busiest intersections, Fourth and Broadway. By the end of the march, the protestors estimated about 50 people had taken part in the demonstration. Members of the Yankton police force drove past the demonstration at times, but there were no signs of problems.
