A picture says a thousand words. The No Peace Until Justice Ottawa march was full of people who came out in solidarity and to support an end to anti-black racism. These photos from the gathering truly show what the march was all about.\nNo Peace Until Justice Ottawa organized a peaceful solidarity march that moved through the capital city on June 5.\nIt all began at Parliament Hill before people marched to the Senate of Canada and then to the Canadian Tribute to Human Rights.\nThe crowd was addressed by speakers like Ketcia Peters, CEO of Roots and Culture Canada, and RJ McEwan, senior pastor at theREACHcentre.\nAt Parliament Hill, gatherers knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds in remembrance of George Floyd and all black lives.\nThat's how long a police officer had his knee on Floyd's neck before he died.\nAccording to the CBC, about 4,000 people came out and gathered on the lawn at Parliament Hill around the Centennial Flame.\nSome politicians, including the Prime Minister, came out to the gathering to stand and kneel with people.\nWater, hand sanitizer and masks were given out at three stations along the route.\nA day after the march, No Peace Until Justice Ottawa posted about the gathering on Instagram.\n"We are grateful to our brothers, our sisters, our elders, our allies. Without you, yesterday wouldn't have been happening. Yesterday, we have empowered our voices," the organizers said.\nSpeaking Their Minds With Signs\nView this post on Instagram "They say that we are all created equal,but ain't nothing bout us equal! so there can never be JUSTICE WHILE KILLING US IS LEGAL! #MELANINPOPPIN #BIGCHIEF #blackandproud✊🏿 #mixedandproud✊🏾 #nomoresilence #nomoreviolence🚫 A post shared by jemma neal (@iam_jemman) on Jun 6, 2020 at 4:01am PDT\nView this post on Instagram June. 05 . 2020 🇨🇦 A post shared by Lana Velasquez (@lanavelasquez) on Jun 5, 2020 at 8:59pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram #blacklivesmatter A post shared by Yasin (@yasin_yazzylazy) on Jun 5, 2020 at 8:48pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram Earlier today at the peaceful march in solidarity for George Floyd in Ottawa!
