An “I Can’t Breathe” march took to the streets of St Augustine, FL, this Sunday, taking us back to 1960s marches for equal and civil rights related to a national incident that brings the nation to a wake up call of consciousness, asking for a direction as a society of free people. The march started in Lincolnville and headed to La Plaza de la Constitucion across the cathedral. People spoke and interacted with the crowd, it was peaceful and the crowds thanked the police for their support.
