Peaceful Protest Around Maryville Town Square Saturday

A few hundred people gathered outside the Nodaway County Courthouse Saturday afternoon to protest the killing of George Floyd.  The organizers changed their decision at the last moment from doing the event online.  The group walked around the town square for 8 minutes and 46 seconds to mirror the length the Minneapolis Police Officer’s knee was on Floyd’s neck.  Following the walk, the crowd heard from various speakers who detailed their experiences with racism.
