WD)—Around 100 people demonstrated Sunday afternoon in front of the Enid city administration building during a second consecutive day of peaceful protests in Enid over the killing of George Floyd. Many drivers on West Garriott honked their support, sometimes drowning out the repeated calls and responses of organizers and speakers shouting into a bullhorn such as "Let me breathe/Let me live," "Say his name/George Floyd" and "No justice/No peace." Chants and speeches stopped at one point as the crowd then knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds in a moment of silence. Floyd, a black man, died on Memorial Day after a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for the same amount of time while Floyd was handcuffed and face-down. Church leaders and private citizens passed out bottles of water, and boxes of pizza and masks were available for those in attendance.

Sunday’s event came after demonstrators gathered Saturday morning at Government Springs Park for the NAACP’s March for Justice and Unity, organized by chapter president Lanita Norwood. The event, attending by about 150 people, began with a 30-minute walk from the park to the Garfield County Court House, where five people, including Ward 4 Commissioner Jonathan Waddell, spoke to the crowd. The group was escorted by police officers on foot and in cars, and roads were blocked off for the march.
