PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Thousands of people are marching through Philadelphia, demanding justice for George Floyd. Demonstrators gathered Saturday near the Philadelphia Museum of Art and its famous “Rocky” steps before setting off for the City Hall area, with the line of marchers stretching for several city blocks along a tree-lined thoroughfare. City officials earlier announced street closures, saying much of the city center, from the Delaware River to the Schuylkill River, would be closed to vehicles. A curfew will be in effect again overnight. Floyd, who was black, died on May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed a knee into his neck even after he pleaded for air and stopped moving.
