Protests assembled on the afternoon of Sunday, May 31 in Downtown Bellevue. What began as a peaceful protest in Downtown Bellevue for the wrongful death of George Floyd turned into a tale of two scenes. One, an ongoing peaceful protest throughout the afternoon and evening, and another looting and vandalism throughout the downtown core of Bellevue.

These pictures and videos assembled from the various individuals provide a glimpse into the series of events that took place on what will likely be a notable day for years to come.
