Impassioned but mostly peaceful demonstrations were held in El Paso last week, as protests over the death of George Floyd, a black man in police custody, spread far beyond Minneapolis to communities across the U.S. and countries as far away as New Zealand and the U.K.

Hundreds gathered near the El Paso police headquarters and in Memorial Park Sunday evening and, on Tuesday, another large demonstration led by Brown Berets del Chuco was held in Downtown.

El Paso Inc. photographer Jorge Salgado was there. Here are some scenes from the protests.

There was another George Floyd peaceful protest in downtown El Paso yesterday! and a counter hate rally at Cleveland Square. Though they say it was for the support

El Paso Police Department.They had Donald Trump signs, so at that hate rally.As they are Part Of The Problem that keeps dividing our Nation that was already GREAT!. Way before Donald Trump came into the political picture,Now everything is so weird with so much hate and negativity from the far right.
