Plateau protests, demonstrations continue

A local councilmember organized a Peace Cruise, while young adults held a BLM protest and others showed their support for local police.

Protests and demonstrations continued on the Plateau last week, the largest being the Peace Cruise that drove around Enumclaw on Wednesday, June 10. The cruise was organized by Enumclaw City Council member Tony Binion, though it was also attended by most of the rest of the council.

On Thursday, June 11, pro-Enumclaw Police Department demonstrators gathered near the police department and on Griffin Avenue to support their boys in blue.

Finally, a group of young adults took to the streets on Friday, June 12, marching in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter — King County group, which gathered in downtown Seattle for a silent march on the same day. The Enumclaw march took place on Railroad Street and Cole Street, slowing or stopping traffic, before gathering at City Hall.

In other news, the Courier-Herald confirmed a report made to police of a truck running over the George Floyd memorial on Griffin Avenue in the last week, though it appeared the damage was minimal.
