The march comes amid tensions nationally over George Flyod’s death during a run in with a police officer in Minneapolis on May 25.  A string of demonstrations nationally were prompted by video of the incident where an officer kneeled on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes amid pleas that he could not breathe.

A string of peaceful demonstrations and paddle out events have been held over last two weeks throughout the islands.
