Several hundred people protesting the death of George Floyd marched through the streets of Huntington Village

A large group of peaceful protesters took to the streets of Huntington Village to protest the death of George Floyd. Each protester took a knee at the intersection of Wall Street and Main Street, with police closing the streets for them. One protester says he’s “scared every day to go on these walks” referring to his participation in the demonstrations. But he does it because his “freedom is worth dying for.” Cecilia Dowd has the story. Credit: Howard Schnapp
