Large crowds march across California for George Floyd

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Thousands of demonstrators filled the streets in San Francisco, Sacramento, Simi Valley, San Diego, Los Angeles and other locations across California on Saturday. They are continuing more than a week of protest marches expressing outrage over the death of George Floyd. The demonstrations in recent days have been boisterous but non-violent. That’s in contrast to last weekend, when some protesters smashed windows, burned police cars and confronted cordons of riot-clad police who fired tear gas and rubber bullets. Gone, too, was most of the looting that ransacked dozens of stores and that authorities say appeared mainly to be the work of non-protesters.
