The Grove - May 30th

The Grove was the first protest i've ever been to. I wasn't sure what to expect but when I saw glass bottles being thrown at parades of police cars racing through crowds, I knew it was going to be pretty intense.

I had no idea that squad cars had been set on fire on the other side of The Grove. I only later realized when I saw the news and took a closer look at the drone photo I had taken.

There was a really moving moment when most of the crowd had dispersed but a young female stood her ground against a large line of police officers.

I left shortly after that photo as the rubber bullets and gas were a bit much for me on my first day out.
