Protesters march through downtown for minority groups’ safety, rights

Protesters began their march in Piedmont Park about 8 p.m. Wednesday, making it the fourth night of demonstrations in Atlanta since the presidential election Nov. 8.

The group formed on Facebook by Motley Rose is calling for an evening of non-violence and unity for those who feel their rights are endangered.

The agenda calls for marchers to arrive at Centennial Olympic Park about 9:30 p.m., re-energize, network and head back to Piedmont Park about 10 p.m.

The event organizers said: “We aim to continue the series of protest/marches throughout Atlanta, which have occurred throughout the past week. And our ultimate goal is to promote the safety of minority groups and their rights in the wake of the hatred which is spreading across our country.”

According to the Facebook post about the event, more than 700 people planned to march.
