In a show of solidarity with Black Lives Matter rallies and protests across North America, hundreds of Calgarians marched in the downtown Monday.

The rallies stem from the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota police custody May 25.

Yesterday, Calgary journalist Omar Sherif attended the event and shot photos. LiveWire Calgary reporter Isaiah Lindo captured the audio and video of the event.

We’ve put the two together along with a video clip, to put you directly in the moment as the rally made its way to the steps of Calgary city hall.

We encourage you to press play and listen while scrolling through the photos. LIVEWIRE CALGARY
