Black Lives Matter rally scheduled for Saturday in Solebury Township

Solebury Black Lives Matter will be holding a rally at Magill’s Hill Park on Saturday to protest the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police and call for an end to racism.

Organizers include local realtor Sue-Ann Divito, Reverend Michael Ruk of St. Philips Episcopal Church, and Solebury Democrats Chair Carol Wasserman Spiewak.

Speakers at the event will include a Solebury supervisor, a school board member, and Rev. Ruk, and singers are scheduled to perform.

“Join our community as we come together to protest the recent murdering of George Floyd, call out systemic racism, and discuss actions we can take for change,” said organizers. “We will be practicing social distancing, so please wear a mask.

The rally takes place from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday at Magill’s Hill Park at River and Chapel Roads. Organizers said attendees can park across the street in the Canal Park lot, and are encouraged to bring signs and water.

Hundreds of local residents marched in support of the Black Lives Matter movement in Lambertville and New Hope on June 6.

    Scheduled from 11 a.m to 12 p.m. It’s 12:11 p.m. right now. Guess they are all on their way to the shore now or maybe some backyard BBQ’s? Feeling smug & proud now that their virtue-signaling is over for the day. I’m sure they took plenty of selfies to share with friends on their Facebook pages.

    I would like to know if there is a connection between all of the recent rallies in support of Black Lives matter and an increase in the spread of the corona virus? remember, the virus does not play. favorites. I would also like to know which school board member will be attending.
    This is a school board that has remained deathly silent in answering a simple question related to Gov. Wolf’s decision not to allow ACTUAL high school graduations to take place,thus far, outside where social distancing (6 feet) can easily be maintained. The question is this: explain how the safety and health of the graduating students is compromised when these students observe social distancing?

      Melvin the rules do not apply when PEACEFUL protesting (said sarcastically) is going on for Wolf.I was also amused by another Governor Cuomo who was upset when he found two or three Businesses not FOLLOWING THE RULES for small infractions but again PEACEFUL protesting was OK by thousands and I cannot even go to St Martin’s to pray because they say so.You cannot cure stupid but when the time comes we can vote them out(NO MAIL IN BALLOTS PLEASE).
