Demonstrators Release Balloons on Anniversary of Daniel Prude's Death

A large crowd of demonstrators gathered in Rochester, New York on March 23, to mark the one-year anniversary of Daniel Prude’s death in police custody.

The crowd marched through the city before arriving at a mural for Prude at 72 Child Street.

This footage uploaded to Twitter shows protesters releasing black, red and white balloons and chanting “say his name, Daniel Prude".

Prude died a week after his arrest in March 2020, during which police placed a spit hood over his head as he was detained. His death sparked protests after police released body camera footage of the arrest in September 2020. Credit: @ItsKGillie via Storyful
