“Hands up, don’t shoot, hands up, don’t shoot … no justice, no peace” and other chants that have resonated across the country made their way to the Del Rio Civic Center Tuesday night, as a peaceful protest was carried out in front of the Amistad Urban Oasis.

More than 200 Del Rioans made their voices heard while they were being closely monitored by two helicopters and law enforcement on the ground. Drivers passing by on Veterans Boulevard observed the movement and in some cases joined the protest by honking their horns in support.
