Black Lives Matter protest in Calgary calls for police defunding

Protesters gathered in Sien Lok Park on Saturday afternoon for a Black Lives Matter rally.

Several hundred people are taking part in a protest in downtown Calgary calling for defunding of the police.

Defund YYC and Calgary’s Black Lives Matter chapter, with the support of Idle No More, have organized the rally which is being held in other cities across the country today including Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, London and Moncton.

Calgary’s march calling on the reallocation of police funds will coincide with the Stonewall March and Rally organized by Rights for All Refugees in Canada to support LGBTQ rights. Organizers of the weekend rally said attention will also be given to the Land Back movement.
