The Soo is a small city, but protesters say it is still important for them to show their support for change.

“We want it known that even in the smallest towns voices can be heard and the black community have our support from any corner of the world even in the smallest communities.  In the end, it’s taking care of humanity is the end goal,” Tomantha Sylvester said.

A smaller protest was held on Saturday, but this one was much bigger thanks to social media.
