A Black Lives Matter (BLM) peaceful protest took place on the Branford Green Sunday afternoon at 1pm.  An estimated 1100 people took part in the event which included speeches, an eight minute and 46 second moment of silence, where people knelt, or laid prone on the ground, followed by a few more speakers then a march on the roads around the Green. Roberta Gill-Brooks asked people when they went home after the rally to set a timer for 8 minutes and 46 seconds and reflect on the time that George Floyd suffered until he died.
