Protesters plan return trip to council meeting

Activists who temporarily shut down the Columbus City Council’s weekly meeting last Monday while protesting the police shooting deaths of Tyre King and Henry Green plan to return tonight.

Council members and city staff evacuated council chambers on the second floor of City Hall last week when protesters rushed the stage, unfurling a banner demanding “Justice for Henry Green” and chanting “Take a knee for Tyre.”

One of the organizations leading that and other protests, the People’s Justice Project, said in a news release that it plans to gather again at 5 p.m. to reiterate a list of demands it made last month and provide an update about discussions with council.

Among those demands are independent investigations of police-involved shootings and the elimination of the Columbus police summer safety initiative.

Police flooded council chambers after protesters took over the meeting, but they did not arrest anyone. Protesters hurled insults at the officers, who stood mostly silently along the front wall of council chambers. 

The protest eventually dispersed, moving outside City Hall.

Protesters already have met with council members Elizabeth Brown and Shannon G. Hardin. Council President Zach Klein tried to set up a meeting before last week’s demonstration, but organizers said it conflicted with their planned protest.
