On Saturday, May 30, the Jacksonville Community Action Committee and Northside Coalition of Jacksonville Inc. held a protest in downtown Jax by the Jail demanding that JSO release body cam video, end police misconduct, end police brutality, and for police accountability.

More people than I’ve ever seen at a Jacksonville protest showed up, a strong 3,000 ignited and incensed by George Floyd’s recent unnecessary death under a white cop’s knee. Following is a glimpse of the local movement, through my lens. Photos by Rachel Jones.

On Sunday, October 13, I exited the Cologne Central Station in front of the Cathedral just before 6 p.m. and faced a Kurdish demonstration. This followed the week President Trump withdrew United States forces from Kurdish-held territory in Northeast Syria, and Turkey had begun airstrikes on the region. (Photos by Rachel Jones)
