SASKATOON -- Nearly 50 people took part in a rally on Sunday calling to defund the police and put an end to racism.
Participants gathered at the Meadow Lake Spray Park Sunday afternoon, some sharing their personal experiences and stories before marching through downtown.
As they left the park, the group chanted "Black lives matter, Indigenous lives matter."
- 'We could make things better': 1,000 people attend Saskatoon Black Lives Matter march
- 'Someone shouldn’t have to die before you start caring': 2000+ gather for Saskatoon Black Lives Matter rally
They then walked up 20th Street and stopped at Civic Square, where organizers again addressed the crowd.
The march finished off at police headquarters around 3 p.m.
This rally comes after three Black Lives Matter rallies were held in Saskatoon over the last month to address anti-Black racism.
