Two separate rallies, one supporting Black Lives Matter and the other supporting law enforcement, were held at the Bethpage Train Station Saturday.
The Black Lives Matter protesters say that they were demonstrating for those who have been killed by police officers, while the other protesters say they were showing support for all police officers, and that they are not being treated fairly.
The Black Lives Matter protesters say they were also asking for all police officers on Long Island to have body cameras, and asked people to vote and to confront racial injustice.
Black Lives Matter rallies were also held on Main Street in Huntington, western Nassau and in the Hamptons.
More protests calling for an end to racial injustice are planned for Sunday, including rallies in Farmingdale and Smithtown
