Hundreds Join Anti-Racism Rally After BLM Mural Was Vandalised in California

Hundreds of anti-racism protesters gathered in Martinez, California on Sunday, after a white couple was filmed vandalising a Black Lives Matter street mural on July 4.

Some 500 people gathered near the Contra Costa County courthouse around 16:00 local time (23:00 GMT). Some scuffles broke out when protesters faced off with some counter-demonstrators, but the rally was overall peaceful.

Protesters subsequently marched toward Waterfront Park, chanting “No justice, no peace.”

On July 4, two residents of the East Bay Area town were caught painting over a city-approved mural reading “Black Lives Matter” on Court Street. The couple is now facing hate crime charges.
