ST. JOHN — A massive turnout in St. John on Saturday walked the streets of the USVI's smallest of the three main islands in protest against racism and police brutality. The event is one of many around the world happening today, and marks a pivotal moment following the death of George Floyd, a black man, by the hand of a white police officer in Minnesota on May 25. Today, one of the largest crowds to ever descend on Washington will gather in a march for justice expected to yield lasting results and a turning point in race relations and policing in the United States. Protests were also held on St. Thomas today, and on St. Croix Thursday. Photos Courtesy Savanah Loftus. (Click the blue Facebook icon to the right of your screen below to view photos.)
