Martinez braces for Sunday afternoon’s protest march

With Martinez bracing for Sunday afternoon’s protest march from the county courthouse to Waterfront Park, many downtown merchants have taken the hint from Police Chief Manjit Sappal and decided to err on the side of caution by boarding up their storefront windows.

Hopefully the event will come off peacefully, but given the recent wave of protests and social unrest across the country in the wake of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin murdering George Floyd on May 25, MPD and other local law enforcement agencies are expected to be out in force.

Stay Cool Martinez. In the immortal words of Rodney King, “Can’t we all just get along ?”
