Hundreds of people gathered in Victor, Idaho, on Saturday afternoon in what looked to have been the largest protest in the Teton region since the death of George Floyd during an arrest in Minneapolis.
Between 200 and 300 people marched up Main Street, yelling refrains that have become commonplace in the past two weeks. Making a circuit through Victor, the march stretched to nearly two city blocks, long enough to have multiple groups leading the marchers in chants.
Organizers implored the crowd to march with "love and compassion," and protestors seemed to take it to heart. Following the short march through town, protestors lined the sides of Main Street near the city park. Drivers honked their horns and held signs in solidarity, though a few shouted retorts to protestors in support of police.
The group took several passes from the city park to the intersection of Main and Center streets (the one stoplight in Victor) before kneeling at the intersection for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the amount of time former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin held his knee on Floyd's neck.
