PEACE MARCH… held Saturday in the Twin Cities saw hundreds of people walk in protest of racial inequalities and police brutality. Watervliet residents Karlianne Loshbough and Tyler Burbach (pictured far left) walking along with fellow Southwest Michigan residents. Karlianne is quoted saying, “I marched yesterday saying no justice, no peace, I marched saying names of people lost to brutality. I marched while chanting black lives matter, I marched with nearly 2,000 people of all different backgrounds. Yesterday I cried, in a crowd of 2,000 people because I want, so badly, for change and I knew that this is exactly what I had to do.” (Contributed photo)
