Friday evening, IRMC Park was divided in half as two peaceful demonstrations were held, with both sides of the same issue represented.
Last night, the rally “Do Not Look Away – Stand Up for Liberty” was held on the west side of North 7th Street, with supporters of this rally protesting the perceived ill conditions of immigrants and asylum seekers at the US border, according to Lynne Alvine, the rally’s organizer.
While just across the street, a counter-rally was held by those who support Donald Trump’s policies. Their organizer was Tammy Curry.
While both sides were very vocal, the rallies themselves were peaceful, and members of the Indiana Borough Police and Sheriff’s department were present to make sure that things were safe for everyone.
