A quickly organized protest sparked by the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis drew about 15 people to the Children’s Garden in Truro last Sunday. The group walked to Route 6, where they stood with signs for about an hour. “We got loads of honks and good energy,” said organizer Sarah Naciri. Another peaceful protest is planned for Friday, June 12 at 4 p.m., meeting at the community center in North Truro, near the library, and walking to the police station via Shore Road. Families and children are welcome. Photos by Nancy Bloom.
