Protests continue for 14th straight day; group marches from McGovern Park into Brown Deer

MILWAUKEE -- Protesters marched for hours in Milwaukee County on Thursday, June 11 -- the 14th straight day of protests following the death of George Floyd.

A group of protesters started at McGovern Park at 3 p.m. and marched peacefully north on 60th into Brown Deer. Many chanted “black lives matter” and “I can't breathe.”

The group took a picture outside of the Brown Deer Police Department and then around 10:15 p.m. walked back to McGovern park Thursday night. Organizers said they came north because they hadn’t demonstrated in that direction yet.

At 12:50 a.m, a few drivers associated with the protest were driving recklessly on South 43rd  and Kiehnau in the wrong direction. MPD threw stop sticks in the northbound lanes to stop the drivers who were driving in the wrong direction.
