Black Lives Matter protest held in Mineola amid weekend of rallies
A Black Lives Matter protest was held in Mineola Sunday after rallies were held in East Meadow, Rockville Centre and Roosevelt this weekend.
Dozens of people marched from the Hempstead Transit Center to the Nassau Legislative Building to call for an end to racial injustice.
Nassau police shut down Franklin Avenue to traffic and escorted the protesters for the two-mile march.
Police say three people were arrested Friday night for disorderly conduct in the protest in East Meadow. Nassau County Executive Laura Curran and Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder say they fully support protesting as long as it stays safe.
Ryder says more than 80 protests have been held in Nassau in the past 14 days.
Anti-racism protests were also held today in Farmingdale, Lindenhurst and Patchogue.
