Hundreds gathered in downtown Toronto Saturday afternoon to demonstrate against racism and police brutality.

People marched together from Nathan Phillips Square to Yonge-Dundas Square. The protest was in solidarity with similar marches that took place across the U.S. today. Participants said the demonstration was to protest against police tactics they say are unfairly used against minorities in Toronto.

Demonstrators echoed with the familiar chants of “Hands up, don’t shoot,” “I can’t breathe,” and “No justice, no peace”…
