#BlackLivesMatter Birmingham Showing "Canceled" for Today's Protest

The Black Lives Matter Birmingham Facebook page is currently showing a post claiming today's protest is cancelled.

"This is an official Black Lives Matter-Birmingham announcement."

The announcement was made approximately an hour ago. We will provide any update if this is not official, however it appears to be.

"We are simply a group who wants equality for all the citizens of Birmingham and America regardless of race, religion, economics, or any other category." 

This will be the forth round of protests from BLMB, which to date have included die ins and roadside demonstrations at the Summit, The Galleria, Walmart on Lakeshore Dr. and a march on Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma.

Each event has involved a diverse group of citizens and no violence from the demonstrators has been reported.
