If Ahmaud Arbery’s family does not have peace, the community will not have peace, say BLM protesters

Black Lives Matter protesters chanting ‘shut it down’ if there is no ‘justice’ for Ahmaud Arbery told Fox News they will march peacefully if the men accused of murdering him are not convicted of all charges.

“We just want them to do the right thing,” said Michael Harris of North Carolina.

Travis McMichael, 35, his father Greg McMichael, 65, and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan, 52, have been charged with murder, aggravated assault and forcible confinement in the fatal shooting of February 23, 2020 in Arbery in the outside Brunswick, Georgia.

AHMAUD ARBERY TRIAL: LIVE UPDATES

A Harris-led activist group chanted outside the Glenn County courthouse on Tuesday:

“What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now. When we don’t get it, shut it down.”

Harris told Fox News that “shutting it down” doesn’t mean they plan to destroy property if the verdicts don’t go their way.

Let me say it again so that the news and these clowns don’t misinterpret what I’m saying, ”Harris said.

“The community doesn’t have peace because their family doesn’t have peace,” Harris continued. “That’s what we mean when we say that, not that we’ll do something crazy, no matter what you call crazy, okay? So don’t distort our words … When we say no justice, no of peace, we mean that we will walk from sunrise to sunset. We never tire. “

Terrell Harris of Georgia said Travis and Greg McMichael, as well as Bryan, should be guilty “on every level.”

“They know what they were doing. Anytime they could have walked away, anytime they could have turned around. It’s unacceptable,” said Terrell Harris.

Michael Harris told Fox News that if a verdict is not rendered before Thanksgiving, they will remain in the courthouse over the holidays.

“His mother cannot spend Thanksgiving with her son. Why should I spend Thanksgiving with my family? It’s not my vacation. The pilgrims ? Why did I celebrate them? he said.
