Tonight in downtown Dallas, Texas, the Next Generation Action Network held a peaceful march against police brutality. This was the same organization that held the July 7th protest in Dallas that turned deadly when a gunman fired on police killing five. The organization and its supporters gathered at the Main Street Garden Park where speeches were made before they set off on their route, arms locked, heading down Main Street to Lamar and back up Commerce Street. As the protesters marched, bystanders stopped what they were doing to take pictures and look out their windows at the 100 + procession marching through the streets of downtown shouting their message. Only one lone individual followed and heckled them from the other side of the street holding a couple, "Vote Trump" signs. As the march made its way down to Lamar Street they stopped and prayed. At this time, the Dallas Police Department showed up in force with rifles, helmets and riot shields asking everyone to stay out of the street. There were small verbal altercations, mostly the protestors yelling at police. This lasted for about 30 minutes before they were back on their way playing catch up to the front half of the march. The march ended right where it started from at Main Street Garden Park. A couple of final speeches were given as well as some thank you's and everyone went on their way.
