CLEVELAND — The Black Lives Matter Cleveland division released a statement today on social media, giving a message of solidarity (and warning) to those participating in the demonstrations today in Cleveland, as well as all over the country.
"If you are coming to antagonize, agitate, or disrupt don't show up. There will be families present that have lost loved ones due to police violence," the group said on Facebook, "we want to give them the opportunity to tell their story and to talk about their loved ones."
The group is asking that all those who attend to follow the rules put in the Facebook's event page, and keep things peaceful.
The event started at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, and is expected to last several hours.
