'Tired of what?': Milwaukee protesters march for justice for 15 days straight

’Tired of what?’: Milwaukee protesters march for justice for 15 days straight


MILWAUKEE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- After 15 days straight of protesting, the People's Movement of Milwaukee said their work is far from over.

On Friday, June 12, the group started gathering at Mitchell Park before 2 p.m.

Activist Frank Nitty told the group that people ask him if he's tired and he replies, "tired of what?"

They left the park around 4:15 and said their goal is to make it to end up at 45th and Cleveland, where a prayer vigil was scheduled Friday night for Joel Acevedo.

So how do organizers plan to keep the momentum for the movement going?

They say with new people marching each afternoon, that will continue to spread the word and their message.

"I think my motivation is seeing all these different people come out here. Every day, more and more people, so that motivates me to keep coming every time," organizer Brandon Wilborn said.

When CBS 58 asked Wilborn how long he plans to continue marching, he said, "Until we get want we want: Justice."
