HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — On Sunday, protesters lined up on Highway 31 in Hoover following the national call of justice for George Floyd.

In Tuscaloosa, protesters also rallied for justice for Floyd.

Sunday evening, protesters stormed Linn Park around the confederate monument. Mayor Randall Woodfin addressed protesters in Downtown Birmingham to stand down after taking down the Charles Linn Statue, saying “allow me to finish the job for you.”
