A protest to speak out against police brutality is being planned by a coalition of McMaster University student groups this weekend.
It’s in response to the police killings of two black men in recent weeks.
The event being organized on Facebook called Rise Up: Hamilton Against Police Brutality, says “We are all implicated in the injustice that has and continues to threaten the safety and rights of POC (people of colour) and Indigenous communities in Canada.”
Ward 3 Councillor Matthew Green is listed as a special guest at the event.
The group will gather Saturday night in Victoria Park from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
