Black Lives Matter protest in support of Tania Harris

Black Lives Matter march for Tania Harris

 

Robbinsdale, Minnesota

 

April 17, 2015

 

Hundreds of people marched through north Minneapolis in response to police shooting 18-year-old Tania Harris on April 16. After a rally at North Commons Park in Minneapolis, the protesters marched north on Broadway to North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale where Tania Harris was recovering from two gunshot wounds. There they demanded that the family of Tania Harris be allowed in to see her. After a stand-off between the crowd and the police at the hospital entrance for about 10 minutes, the family was allowed in. The protesters waited outside until there was confirmation the family had gotten in to see her.

 

Sign reads:

BLACK LIVES MATTER
