Protest Scheduled For Saturday On Miracle Mile Followed By Meeting With Chief Hudak

A group focused on Equality in Education, Ketab, will be holding a protest tomorrow at 4:00PM at the intersection of Miracle Mile and LeJeune Road.

In a flyer circulated by the group, they state “We are protesting the deaths of: George Floyd, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Tamir, Rice, Sandra Bland, and all the black and brown lives that matter.”

The protest is part of a chain of protests being carried out throughout the United States, on Saturday, in response to the brutal death of George Floyd in the hands of Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin, who was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

Floyd’s death has lead to protests that have turned into violent riots included the vandalizing of businesses in Minneapolis.

Coral Gables Police announced this afternoon, that Chief Ed Hudak will be meeting with members of Ketab tomorrow at 5:00PM, following a “peaceful protest”, in order “to have an open dialogue towards constructive solutions towards preventing unfortunate event such as those seen in recent stories publicized throughout the country.”

A second meeting will be determined at a later date, in order to continue an open line of dialogue. Representatives of the Miami-Dade County Association of Chief of Police will also be in attendance at the meeting.

  1. What was the outcome of the protest on Miracle Mile yesterday, Saturday May 30, and meeting with Chief Hudak? I guess wasn’t bad or we will have heard BAD NEWS about it in other CHANELS other than this one.
    Need a news outlet that doesn’t post OLD news …..! and keeps us really informed not guessing!
    Also I had the corona test done and I couldn’t get the results in writing until I electronically wrote to them, telling them what a rip off it was, they just needed test done to show how many City Of Coral Gables have done free of charge in a secure parking lot, but the results didn’t matter to them, just numbers. is a reap off and my tax dollars should not go them, there are more important things to be done, money is not water as of know.

  2. I find this to be out of place at present. With Covid19, distancing and face covering, this will only serve to spike numbers, we do not need a surge at present. Like all protests, we might see violence at a time when places are starting to open. Bad idea whoever in Coral Gables is allowing this to take place during the Covid19 pandemic. Don’t let your guard down, it’s not the time. Lord help us all.
