Occupy Seacoast holds protest following Baltimore homicide


DOVER - About a dozen activists from Occupy NH Seacoast stood at the corner of Washington Street and Central Avenue on Saturday morning. Their signs read "Justice" and "Black Lives Matter."

“We just need to raise attention because obviously there are still concerns regarding Black Lives Matter going on in the country," said protester David Holt.

The protesters got beeps - and scowls - as they held their signs for about an hour.

But most said that the response didn't matter, as long as their message was seen.

“People need to be – to stand up for injustice," said Caroline French.

The protests follow the homicide death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray in Baltimore. Gray died after being injured while in police custody.

Six police officers have been charged in connection to his death. All of them have been released on bail.

A police union representing the officers has stated they were wrongly charged.
