About 100 people gathered near Riverfront Park in Miamisburg this afternoon to protest the death of George Floyd.

Protesters stood along Linden Avenue near T.J. Chumps and Amy’s Cakes, two local businesses. They chanted “No justice, no peace.” As they walked along the road, they called to police officers to join them in protest.

In their words: Why locals protest and what change they want to see

The protest appeared peaceful. There was no word on whether businesses in the area were closed for the protest.

Miamisburg is one of many places that saw protests this weekend. Protests were planned in Dayton, Trotwood, Miami Twp., Huber Heights, Xenia and Yellow Springs today.
