The Graffiti Bridge social media

Pensacola News Journal
June 1, 2020

Activists baked under the sun mid-day Monday as they sat and stood quietly around the Graffiti Bridge, signs and fists raised in the air.

Nearly every other car that drove under the bridge honked, with some drivers rolling down their windows and sticking their fists in the air in solidarity. Some drivers stopped, got out and joined the peaceful protest. Some parked and delivered coolers full of water, energy drinks, food and ice cream to the protesters.

The bridge, with murals honoring George Floyd and protesting police brutality on all four sides of its base, has become a focal point for the city’s peaceful protests. A makeshift memorial with candles, posters, flowers and signs under a mural of Floyd’s face grew larger by the hour.

Monday marked the fourth straight day of protests in Pensacola in response to Floyd, whose death May 25 while in police custody has sparked protests around the country. A former Minneapolis police officer has been charged with his murder.
