A slow-down protest is planned for tomorrow on Interstate 40 through North Carolina on Wednesday, June 24, 2020.
According to the Raleigh News Observer, a group called Young Americans Protest is trying to help spread the word for drivers to slow down at 8:46 am, in observance to the 8 minutes and 46 seconds officer Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck.
Motorists are being asked to protest by slowing down to 10 mph from 8:46 am to 9:30 am.
A co-founder of the group, Zainab Baloch said that the slowdown is “meant to bring more attention to demands to defund police and hold them accountable,” the News Observer reported.
If you’re going to be passing through the area, use caution.
